The team

The Storage team manages a vast number of Apache Kafka clusters for our marketplaces around the world. As part of the Data Highway area we play a key role in Adevinta’s Data Strategy. The data we collect is essential to our business as it feeds marketplaces with low-latency (“realtime”) updates, visitor insights analysis and targeted advertisement.

We solve exciting problems at scale by building technologies around Kafka, like APIs, monitoring and authentication systems, and gathering up to 900 million events per day while keeping users’ privacy and data security in mind. We also develop data services on top of our Kafka platform, providing capabilities like data catalog, lineage and IAM.

What you’ll do

As a Senior Backend Engineer in the Data Highway area, you’ll have the opportunity to build a critical, state-of-the-art data transport layer for Adevinta marketplaces for a variety of components, such as classification, insights and understanding and modeling user behavior.
