Even if you don’t meet 100% of the qualifications below, please still consider applying. We believe in
a holistic approach when evaluating talent for our team.
Metabase is the easiest way for people to get insights from their data, from tiny startups who get up and running quickly to major corporations with tens of thousands of users. That’s why people love us.
We bring data tools with the elegance and simplicity of consumer products to the crufty world of enterprise business intelligence. We provide an opinionated open source starting point for how companies should measure, analyze and share their data, which is used by tens of thousands of companies.
We’re currently seeking a customer-focused and highly technical Success Engineer for our Professional Services team. The Professional Services team will help our new customers get up and running on Metabase and help our existing customers improve and add to their Metabase use. This is a great job for someone who loves data analytics, enjoys helping others, and is excited to work for a startup.
A typical day will involve a mix of: working with our customers to understand their needs, executing the plans you’ve created with our customers to transform data or create dashboards, and providing guidance on best practices. Any given week, you might construct SQL queries to analyze data in Metabase, drop into a programming language to debug an embedding issue, or collaborate with our writing team.
We are the voice for our customers. Our product team reviews our feedback, asks us for advice, and engages with our customers proactively. We have a writer on our team who reviews what questions our customers are asking and improves our documentation, so the next customer doesn’t have to ask. We also work closely with an engineering team focused on critical issues and our escalations, so we don’t have to worry about our customers being impacted by major bugs for a long time.
We’re 100% remote, and our operations are designed that way. People work during the times that work for them. You are not expected to be “on” at all times, and there are no points for responding quickly to every Slack you receive.
We don’t overpromise our customers. Since we’re open source, our customers can see what we’re doing in our Github repository and our roadmap is publicly available for our customers at all times.
Many companies use the word “success” to describe jobs that are really sales jobs or account management jobs with quotas. We are not about that. We’re exclusively here to make sure our open source users, our future customers who are currently on trials, and our current paying customers all get the appropriate help they need to be successful.
If you want to take part and have a voice in a truly growing business, believe that BI analytics should be easy to use and set-up, and that self-service analytics should be a real thing and not just some marketing jargon that people put on their websites, please apply!
Being a Success Engineer at Metabase would be a great fit for you if you:
- Enjoy helping people and solving their problems
- Have a strong technical background (minimum of 3 -5 years writing production code or administering systems)
- Have experience with using data visualization or data analytics tools (bonus if you have experience using Metabase)
- Have experience in a customer facing role on similar team (like professional services or consulting team)
You are an expert in at least two of:
- Running Metabase on a variety of operating systems for multiple years
- Strong background in networking and how web applications function
- Managing servers (either physical, or Docker, or AWS/GCP/etc)
- Managing databases and strong SQL skills
- Front-end engineering
It’s not required, but a plus if you:
- Have experience with open-source products
- Are fluent in multiple languages (this is helpful as our users are world-wide)
We’re a global team (50% outside the US), fully distributed (from Thailand to California), who get things done asynchronously, with plenty of uninterrupted time, supporting each other to do the best work of our careers. We offer flexibility (define your own schedule and work from wherever you want), autonomy, and an environment that fosters growth, learning, and development. We’re relentlessly user-focused and believe in building long-term value, not short-term hacks. And we raised a $30M Series B to take our approach to the next level for years to come.
