Sync data from your warehouse into the tools your business teams rely…
Hightouch’s mission is to empower everyone to take action on their data. Through our Reverse ETL platform, business and data users can seamlessly sync data from where it resides, such as warehouses and databases, to where it is needed, including operational systems and SaaS tools. Traditionally, acting on data has required engineering time and bandwidth, and left most business users stuck with charts and reports that are unable to take automated action on their data. With Hightouch, every business user, without writing any code, can activate data to streamline critical processes, improve marketing performance, and scale operations.
Our team operates with a focus on making a meaningful impact for our customers. We believe in approaching challenges with a first principles thinking mindset, moving quickly and embracing our value of efficient execution, and treating each other with compassion and kindness. We look for team members that are strong communicators, have a growth mindset, and are motivated and persistent in achieving our goals.
Hundreds of companies use Hightouch, including Spotify, Ramp, Retool, NBA, Plaid, and Betterment. We’re based in San Francisco, are remote-friendly, and backed by leading investors such as Amplify Partners, ICONIQ Growth, Bain Capital Ventures, Y-Combinator, and Afore Capital.
Building upon Reverse ETL’s ability to use SQL to sync to any SaaS tool, Customer Studio is Hightouch’s second major product that provides a purpose-built no-code suite of features that enables anyone, regardless of their SQL experience, to activate data directly from their warehouse. Despite being a small team (3 engineers, 1 PM, 1 designer), Customer Studio is our fastest growing product and already accounts for nearly half of our revenue, which also gives this role the potential to have significant impact!
We’re looking to add a product-minded backend engineer to the team. The ideal candidate will be comfortable diving deep into backend and distributed systems and think holistically about architecture, scalability, maintainability, and reliability. We also are looking for someone with strong customer and product thinking and who feels comfortable writing and engaging with product specs.
Some of the problems we’ll be working on include:
We are looking for talented, intellectually curious, and motivated individuals who are interested in tackling the problems above. This is a senior role, but we focus on impact and potential for growth more than years of experience. The salary range for this position is $170,000 - $240,000 USD per year, which is location independent in accordance with our remote-first policy.
Our interview process focuses on evaluating fit for the most important dimensions of the role: product sense, ability to architect backend and distributed systems, and alignment with Hightouch’s values. Notably, we don’t do any programming interviews as we believe they are low signal to noise and aren’t a good evaluation mechanism.
Data warehouses like Snowflake and BigQuery are shifting how companies think of centralizing data. They're becoming the standard place to centralize customer data at a company, given how cheap and accessible warehouses have become. HIghtouch exists to help companies get their data out of the warehouse (reverse ETL) and into the hands of sales, marketing, and product teams.
Business users can't get data into their SaaS tools without help from engineering. Hightouch is the easiest way to get customer data from your database or data warehouse into your SaaS tools. Just write SQL in our UI, map the columns to the fields in your SaaS tool, and then watch the data live sync into your SaaS tool. Some common examples include getting data into sales (Salesforce, Hubspot), marketing (Iterable, Braze, MailChimp), and support (Zendesk, Intercom) tools.
Why is this a big deal? SaaS tooling like Salesforce have been promising to be the customer source of truth for years, but have never achieved that goal. Warehouses have accomplished that vision, but lack the final piece which is getting the data back into the operational systems where it can be used. Hightouch closes this loop and captures the value of getting data into these systems.
We're growing rapidly, have a user base that raves about us, and recently raised a Series A from top firms!
