Role Description

About Census 🔁

Census is how data teams at companies like Figma, Notion, Rippling, Clearbit, and Fivetran build better business operations.

With Census, analysts can turn their data warehouse into a single source of truth and publish their insights directly into the apps that marketing, sales, and success teams use daily. With richer customer data, these teams can build better campaigns, understand what users are doing, and ultimately drive more sustainable revenue.

Backed by a16z and Sequoia, we're a hybrid team headquartered in San Francisco who love taking annoying problems most people avoid and building elegant solutions for them. We believe that data should be used for more than just making charts. This is why we built the first integration platform that works directly within cloud data warehouses.

Your Mission

As a Software Engineer at Census, you'll be working closely with the founders and the engineering team to create and scale a data platform to billions of records.

We have a small and senior team of engineers with years of industry experience from places like Amazon, Google and Dropbox as well tons of startup experience (we have 6 former YC founders on staff).

  • You will be a collaborative member of our sprint process - we do short sprint plans once every two weeks and 20 minute daily virtual standups.

  • You won't burn out – we are building a great product while creating a fun, family-friendly culture.

About Census

We're building a a new kind of data platform that turns a company's data warehouse into an operational hub to power growth across the whole business.

Company Culture

We're a tight-knit team of engineers who care about why we build software as much as what or how. We like to start by building the smallest possible version of a feature & iterate in the open with our customers. We operate the company in the open and everyone has input on the product roadmap. The line between engineering, design, product, and even sales is fuzzy. Engineers are involved in customer conversations and ensuring that their work gets deployed and activated.
