Engineering Manager, Product-Led Growth Infrastructure at Mixpanel

Title: Engineering Manager, PLG Infrastructure

The Analytics Engineering team’s mission is to make the decision-making process at Mixpanel as data-informed as possible. We are building a global source-of-truth database for the entire company and we strongly believe that data quality must be a foundational feature of all systems and is not something that can be layered in the warehouse, so, beyond just owning the ETL pipelines and data in our warehouse, we partner very closely with different functions across the company and make sure their systems are architected with data quality in mind, help automate critical workflows, and surface timely & contextual information in their operational/analytics tool of choice (Salesforce, Marketo, Vitally, Mixpanel, etc).

We are in the very early stages of building out an Analytics Engineering organization within our company. The current team of engineers come with a wide range of experience having worked on almost all layers of Mixpanel’s tech stack, from our website UX all the way, to working on the internals of our distributed database engine, and everything in between. As much as we love solving complex distributed systems problems, we also love applying our engineering skills to solve problems that have a direct business impact ranging from:

  • Enabling our marketing team to target our Ideal customers through ad campaigns
  • Helping our support team improve their response SLAs to customers
  • Alerting our sales & success teams to customers who hit product milestones
  • Helping our product team build Mixpanel for the Modern Data Stack

We primarily speak SQL, use BigQuery as our data warehouse, and swear by dbt, Fivetran, Census & hightouch to solve all our problems!
