About the Platform In-App Analytics Team

The In-App Analytics squad is responsible for building our in-product analytics experience. We are at the forefront of events-driven architecture here at Gorgias, and we are building an internal platform for all the product teams to extend their offering with user-facing analytics and real-time event processing features.

We aim to craft building blocks that multiple other product-engineering teams will use to build their application features. We follow data mesh principles and are part of the governance and standards-setting team for data and events-related topics at Gorgias.

The scope of our work goes beyond analytics. We are building a real-time application experience using Apache Flink on top of Apache Kafka. We use Debezium, CloudEvents, Kafka Connect, ElasticSearch, and Clickhouse, together with CubeJS and Python (Flask). When we can, we contribute back to the Open Source community.

Our team includes data, backend, and frontend engineers so that we can provide the Gorgias engineering teams with an end-to-end platform experience.

Our work arrangement is hybrid, with a requirement of two days per week in the office : Wednesday and Thursday.
