Senior Full-Stack Engineer



About Us 🔁

Census is how data teams at companies like Figma, Notion, Rippling, Clearbit, and Fivetran build better business operations.

With Census, analysts can turn their data warehouse into a single source of truth and publish their insights directly into the apps that marketing & sales teams use daily. With live data, these teams can build better campaigns, understand what users are doing, and ultimately drive more sustainable revenue.

We're a hybrid team headquartered in San Francisco who love taking annoying problems most people avoid and building simple solutions for them. We believe that data should be used for more than just making charts. This is why we built the first integration platform that works directly within cloud data warehouses.
