Your challenge: Help our teams move fast! We’re providing, maintaining, and developing the platforms and tools to enable a DevOps culture and the best possible workflows for Engineers and Data Scientists. If solving technical challenges and continuous learning excites you, trivago should be your first choice. In this role, you’ll be joining a new and small team being created to collaborate with software developers and data engineers on internal tools.
