Job description

Help us build thriving startup ecosystems

Tech startups can sprout anywhere, but their growth potential is tied to the richness of their home turf. Without access to the right knowledge, talent, and funding, even promising startups run out of steam. Thriving tech ecosystems are a cornerstone for job creation and economic growth. A given fact for entrepreneurs, corporates, venture capital firms and governments. Data transparency has the power to accelerate entrepreneurship and innovation by inspiring people and enabling better focus and decision-making. Dealroom is best known for sharing startup data – e.g., to help venture capital firms spot the next Spotify tree in the startup forest – helping foster tech ecosystems is also part of our mission. While we don’t call the investment shots, our database provides predictive power and discovery insights for our clients through data and AI. And we can proudly say that our content is regularly picked up by leading publications like The Economist, the Financial times and The New York Times. Do you want to contribute to our mission? 

What we think you might especially enjoy when joining Dealroom:

  • In the right spot, at the right time. We’re in a great phase where you will have a huge impact on our AI strategy and infrastructure - by leading the AI team in delivering highly performant models (NLP mostly) , and implementing Machine Learning to automate and transform business processes.

    You will have the freedom to discover and create!

  • You’re at the center of the ecosystem. We believe that you will naturally relate and enjoy working with the type of data we are dealing with, the subject itself, and the data sector.

  • 30+ Nationalities, and counting. At Dealroom, we are happy to be a team of 70 while having 30 different nationalities! At the same time, we believe you would find many like-minded people and perhaps feel in your natural habitat as we are actually operating in a data industry developing a data-focused product and all being quite on a ‘nerdy side’ ;)

  • This will be one hell of a ride! We have just secured another fundraise in September, further investing in our team and doubling our AI team in the upcoming year!

The rapid growth of requires an ambitious and diligent candidate eager to take their career to the next level. Over time Dealroom has built a reputation for high-quality content & data. As Senior Data Engineer, and one of the key experts in the scaling process of our Data Engineering team, you will have the freedom to develop and own data components and to design our next generation data infrastructure. We are planning to double in the upcoming year, growing to a 25 people data team, consisting of data scientists, AI and data engineers. You can be involved in growing our team and have an impact on who will be your future colleagues and help them grow by sharing your knowledge. You’ll work closely with our Data Engineering Lead and Head of Data and AI.
