Overview: <p><strong>About ThinkData</strong></p> <p>ThinkData Works Inc. is a Toronto-based technology company whose platform is used by some of the worlds&rsquo; largest organizations to process and refine data into usable products. They host one of the worlds&rsquo; largest repositories of publicly available data and enable their clients to significantly increase the amount of information they use to run their business.</p> <p>At ThinkData, our mission is to build the easiest and most secure solution that enables our users to access, collaborate, and integrate with the data that powers their business. Some of the largest companies in the world use our platform to build machine intelligent solutions that are redefining their industries - all built on the back of our platform Namara.</p> <p>We're not a single-solution AI company or a consulting firm disguised as a startup. We're interested in solving the fundamental problem of accessing and distributing data. Our platform, Namara, will propel the next wave of intelligent solutions.</p> <p>We need a Data&nbsp;Scientist to join ThinkData and work as a key member of our data and analytics team. This role will involve hands on data science work as well as client-facing problem solving as we work with large enterprise clients to define their data strategies. We&rsquo;re looking for a Data Scientist with a few years of experience who wants to be part of a scaling company that prioritizes accessing and distributing data; and, enables our clients to focus on their data. Someone who wants to use Tableau and other tools to process data into usable information and turn it into an application to meet the needs of our clients. Someone who can gain an in-depth understanding of how our platform works for our enterprise clients and how we can meet the needs and drive key decisions for everyone else. A Data&nbsp;Scientist who wants to be part of a team that solves real world problems and powers the next generation of data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence.</p>
Responsibilities: <p><strong>What&rsquo;s in it for you?</strong></p> <ul> <li><em>Knowledge.&nbsp;</em>You will be given the tools and the support you need - from our Data team of ten and our co-founders - to succeed in this role.</li> <li><em>The chance to make an impact.&nbsp;</em>We want someone with the confidence and experience to make decisions and effectively build customized data solutions for our new clients.</li> <li><em>Access to new tech.&nbsp;</em>At ThinkData we don&rsquo;t shy away from bleeding edge tech. We encourage you to experiment, test and push the boundaries through research and development.</li> <li><em>Career growth.</em>&nbsp;This role will change and evolve as we continue to grow. Whether you want to move into a people management role or stay heads-down in R&amp;D, we are open to you defining and building out your career path here.</li> </ul>
Requirements: <p><strong>So, how do we know that&rsquo;s you? You can:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Design and build prototypes. You have a degree in Mathematics or Computer Science and 2-5 years of hands-on experience with Tableau or a similar Business Intelligence tool, building data solution prototypes.</li> <li>Innovate solutions to complex problems. Communication and decisiveness are crucial as is the ability to weigh the opinions of others. You can confidently relay your choices and reasoning to clients and internal stakeholders.</li> <li>Collaborate. You can work autonomously and as a contributing team member.</li> <li>Evolve with us. The landscape is being built under our feet as we move forward, so we need people who can channel their passion, learn quickly and navigate the unknown at top speed.</li> <li>Rock climb or rock out. Most of our engineering team has a love for solving the puzzle of getting up the walls efficiently. There are also a shocking number of band members floating around. We&rsquo;re guessing it&rsquo;s a precision art-perfectionist thing.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Need more reasons to join?</strong></p> <p>We may be technologically driven, but like any good Canadian we know the best ideas are thought of up north in a cottage. We currently take two 3-day retreats for mission setting, aligning our goals, product management and team building. We usually do a spring and fall one up at a cottage. We&rsquo;re not saying this involves a beer keg, guitars and campfires. But we&rsquo;re not saying it doesn&rsquo;t.</p> <p>We are managing our growth. We continue to promote and nurture the open, collaborative nature of who we are and how we work. And we don&rsquo;t just support each other in the office. The number of musicians in-house is pretty overwhelming, from big band trumpeters to death metal guitarists. There&rsquo;s always a co-worker with a gig coming up and we go out to cheer them on.</p> <p>If being a pioneer in the world of data and solving real-world problems sounds like a future you want to be part of, express your interest here or follow us on&nbsp;<a href="">Twitter</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;<a href="">LinkedIn</a>&nbsp;to learn more about us.</p> <p>ThinkData Works welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.</p>
