Overview: <p><strong>About ThinkData</strong></p> <p>ThinkData helps organisations turn any data into fuel for their business. Whether sourcing new streams of public data or transforming existing internal information, ThinkData&rsquo;s platform, Namara, acts as a data refinery, serving up ideal data capable of powering enterprise solutions.</p> <p>Companies of all sizes are only just beginning to tap into the potential of available data. With internal data being made more accessible through the adoption of proper warehousing, and new streams of external data published daily, the world of data management has never been more dynamic and cumbersome &ndash; but there has also never been more opportunity.</p> <p>Our mission at ThinkData is to significantly increase the amount of data accessible within an organization. We are creating a standard way to access the disparate world of data and organizations are relying on our platform to power their decision science.</p> <p>We need a Data Scientist to join our team and embark on a mission of growth and internal building. Someone to help us scale our company and our product to meet the needs of companies without the savviness and data science teams. 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 Scientist who can look at we have and work side-by-side with our teams to design data solutions that solve real-world business problems for our new client base.</p>
Responsibilities: <p><strong>What&rsquo;s in it for you?</strong></p> <ul> <li><em>The chance to make an impact.</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</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>Leadership and growth.</em> This role will change and evolve as we continue to grow. We are looking for expertise and guidance. 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><em>Design and build prototypes</em>. With expertise in post-graduate level Mathematics and three years hands-on experience, you bring expertise in building data solution prototypes.</li> <li><em>Innovate solutions to complex problems.</em> Communication and decisiveness are key as is the ability to weigh the opinions of others. You can confidently make software design decisions.</li> <li><em>Collaborate.</em> You can mentor the team, work autonomously and as a contributing team member.</li> <li><em>Evolve with us</em>. 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><em>Rock climb or rock out</em>. With a Joe Rockheads across the street, 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 with 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 Twitter or LinkedIn to learn more about us.</p> <p>ThinkData Works welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities.
