About Data at Zapier
Zapier relies on dozens of systems that emit data about Zapier and our potential and current users and partners. This data is useful for us to make a better product, better decisions, and understand our weaknesses and opportunities.
The data team at Zapier pulls this data from DBs, APIs, and event streams, collocates it and then processes it through all the disparate systems to bring them together in a reliable, timely, performant, and easy to understand way to employees and systems that need it.
Zapier Data comprises various sub-teams :
Data Foundations, focussed on data infrastructure and core tooling;
Data Products, focussed on building machine-learning driven production models;
Data Governance, focussed on increasing the value of the data through stewardship;
Core Warehouse, focussed on core data assets and the data warehouse;
Data Insights, a group of embedded business-facing teams focussed on exposing data in useful self-service form, extracting domain insights and recommending strategies based on their findings.
Our stack is best summed up by : AWS Redshift (and the related AWS products Glue, Redshift, S3), Looker, Airflow, Matillion ETL, DBT, Kafka, Python, and NiFi.
