About the Role
As an Integration Engineer, you will be working within one of our scrum teams, focused on expanding Dotdigital and enhancing its integration with other platforms. Utilizing an embedded IPaaS platform, the team is able to build powerful integrations fast and deploy them at scale. Our goal is to create integrations that excel in performance and reliability, ensuring rapid data processing while handling large volumes with ease. As a part of the Product Engineering team, you will collaborate closely with Product Managers, Quality Assurance Engineers, and a diverse group of talented individuals.
Most of your time will be spent working within the low-code environment provided by Tray.io. While it involves a good deal of drag-and-drop, there is plenty of scripting required to achieve the performance and efficiency we seek. As we constantly integrate with new platforms, you will also spend time acquainting yourself with various platforms and reviewing their technical documentation to determine the most effective way to address the needs of our customers.
We’re remote! Our product and technical teams are currently based in the UK, Poland, and South Africa and our 180 team members all work from home. We do make office and co-working spaces available, but that choice is up to you. We keep in touch with each other via Slack and Zoom and have a great collaborative culture. To top up our social batteries, we all meet up quarterly in person (we have a meetup per country) and work together for a day, and let off some steam with activities or tech talks.
You’ve got plenty of experience working with SaaS platforms and you’re aware of their API capabilities and the authentication mechanisms that protect them. That experience has led you to have a great understanding of data models and how they vary between different software systems. You’re a fluid communicator - whether within your team, or with customers; and you’re a talented collaborator too, talking to the right people at the right time. You have experience putting yourself in the shoes of the customer, too, and you want to help build the right thing, not just any thing. Ideally, you’ll have some form of commercial programming or scripting experience.
The Product Engineering team has five department values that we use to guide us, and we hope they’ll resonate with you. They are:
- Shipping fast, sustainably
- Be excellent to each other
- Communication makes us stronger
These are the essential technical skills we need you to bring to us
- Experience using scripting or programming languages
- Understanding of data modelling
- Awareness of efficient data storage and retrieval mechanisms
- Awareness of batch processing techniques and efficient API usage
- Good sense of initiative
- Experience working with an IPaaS system such as Zapier, IFTT, Blendr, Tray.io, ReTool or Microsoft's Power Platform
- Exposure to as many of the following as possible: REST, SOAP, GraphQL, JSON, XML and OAuth2
- Experience of working within a scrum team (GIT, PRs, scrum, agile, etc) - ideally a remote-first team.
Don’t just take our word for it - hear what your future colleagues have to say about working in our team:
"Working at Dotdigital is a fulfilling experience. The job's nature and flexibility, combined with strong ethics, create a fantastic work environment. The camaraderie within the team is outstanding, ensuring you're never working alone—truly a great company with great people."
