Requirements: <p><strong>So, how do we know that&rsquo;s you?

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 <a href="https://twitter.com/thinkdataworks">Twitter</a> or<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/company/9217518/">LinkedIn</a> to learn more about us.</p> <p>ThinkData Works welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities.
