Meet Gorgias, the customer service platform designed for ecommerce merchants, and built to provide amazing experience to shoppers at scale on Shopify, BigCommerce, and Magento. Our product empowers merchants to manage all their customer service in one place over email, live chat, voice, Facebook, Instagram, and SMS.

Everything we do is for our customers, and we’re currently serving over 12,000+ ecommerce merchants, including : Steve Madden, Timbuk2, Decathlon, and Sports Illustrated. They love us for our innovative product, our focus on their ecommerce needs, and, of course, our lightning-fast customer service response time.

We raised $25 million in our Series B round in December 2020 and $30 million in our Series C round in 2022. We more than doubled in size in every meaningful way: annual recurring revenue, the size of our customer base, and the size of our Gorgias team, for starters.

We’re still growing fast and looking for new teammates who want to grow with us.

About the Platform In-App Analytics Team

The In-App Analytics squad is responsible for building our in-product analytics experience. We are at the forefront of events-driven architecture here at Gorgias, and we are building an internal platform for all the product teams to extend their offering with user-facing analytics and real-time event processing features.

We aim to craft building blocks that multiple other product-engineering teams will use to build their application features. We follow data mesh principles and are part of the governance and standards-setting team for data and events-related topics at Gorgias.

The scope of our work goes beyond analytics. We are building a real-time application experience using Apache Flink on top of Apache Kafka. We use Debezium, CloudEvents, Kafka Connect, ElasticSearch, and Clickhouse, together with CubeJS and Python (Flask). When we can, we contribute back to the Open Source community.

Our team includes data, backend, and frontend engineers so that we can provide the Gorgias engineering teams with an end-to-end platform experience.
