What’s Engineering at Segment Like?

The engineering community at Segment helps facilitate learning, and not only breaks things down to the answers, but weaves in best-practices while I learn.

Integrations Engineer
I believe Segment is a great place for engineers because it’s both challenging and enabling. On the Sources launch team, I was blown away by Segment’s rapid iteration and emphasis on impact.
Tejas
Software Engineer
One of the most fulfilling things about working at Segment is being able to solve the data infrastructure problem, on which most companies end up investing a lot of resources. By handling their data, we now allow our customers to focus entirely on their core product rather than having to build and maintain an in-house infrastructure.
Rakesh
Engineering Lead
I believe that perfect engineering management is figuring out what someone is capable of and then consistently figuring out how to push someone 20% out of their comfort zone, while also giving them the support they need to achieve those goals.

Our Values

Focus

We strive to solve one problem completely, rather than two problems at 50%. For engineers, that means heatseeking to the most pressing problems and coming up with a solution that doesn’t just satisfy the needs of our customers, but delights them. To do this, we take the unix-philosophy from everything to product to tooling.

Tribe

We want a tribe full of diverse, unique people united by their passions, who empathize with one another and default to helping out. We strive to help everyone in our tribe achieve their personal and mastery goals, while sharing our learnings with the broader tribe around us.

Drive

We strive to solve customer problems at a massive scale. We are currently processing over two billion API calls a day and aspire to continue doubling our infrastructure load every six months for the next several years. We believe that an automatic reflex for self-starting, with an uncanny habit of getting shit done is required to build anything of great value.

Karma

As stewards of customer data for thousands of businesses, we strive for the highest level of visibility and reliability we can possibly achieve. We want to push the boundaries of technology, not ethics. We also believe in giving back to the community in the form of blog posts and open source. After all, our secret sauce is an open source repo.
