Business Intelligence Engineer

Our Search Intelligence team is looking for a data engineer with a strong interest in analytics to take ownership of critical data pipelines and complex data crunching for our product analysis team. Working with huge data-sets, you’ll be responsible for developing our analytical tools and data products that impact the decisions of Product Managers and Business Owners across the company.

The Search Intelligence Team’s mission is to measure the performance of our main products for web and apps. We’re a diverse team of analysts building and maintaining a wide range of different data tools using Hive & SQL to solve puzzling data challenges and complex analyses. The actual data engineering or query building has always been a substantial part of trivago’s broad understanding of an analyst, so it was only natural to make a focus area out of this part of the job.

If owning complex data pipeline topics with a company-wide impact is the next step on your development path, we want to hear from you!
