The Role


This role requires someone who has demonstrated an ability to develop, test, optimize, and maintain scalable databases, architectures, and pipelines that enable data scientists and software developers to easily analyze and work with data.  The ideal candidate has worked closely with data scientists and data architects and is an expert at optimizing data flow for use across broader teams. The candidate should be able to generate ideas and create tools that add greater functionality and usability to data systems within the company.  


Qualifications and Skills


  • A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Information Technology, Data Science, Applied Math, Physics, Engineering, or a comparable analytical field from an accredited institution
  • Expert in modeling, working with database architectures, and relational databases
  • 3+ years experience or demonstrated fluency in big data tools, such as Hadoop (MapReduce, Hive, Pig), Spark, and Kafka
  • Experience with SQL databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL) and No-SQL databases (Cassandra, MongoDB)
  • Experience working with enterprise-grade cloud computing platforms such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS (EC2, EMR, RDS, Redshift)
  • Expertise in relevant programming languages (Python, C/C++, Java, Pearl, Scala)
  • Deep understanding of data modeling tools (ERWin, Enterprise Architect, Visio)
  • Familiarity with optimizing big data pipelines and extracting value from large disconnected datasets
  • Demonstrated ability to develop high-quality code adhering to industry best practices (i.e., code review, unit tests, revision control)



Who You Are


  • You understand that writing code is as much about functionality as it is about communication, and that shines through in the clarity of your code and how you describe it to your teammates
  • You are a self-starter who can work autonomously and drive your success within a team
  • You are comfortable when things go according to plan, and you are energized when chaos strikes and the team's well-laid plans need to be overhauled
  • You know that start-up life involves continual adaptation and change, and that excites you!


What You'll Get


  • A full-time position that offers competitive compensation
  • A benefits program delivered through our bespoke digital platform, giving you control, choice, and flexibility.  We give you the ability to build your package of benefits covering health (think medical, dental, vision), wellness (think gym, workout gear, ski pass, massage, transit) and RRSP (think retirement)
  • A downtown office location with first-rate amenities, surrounded by great restaurants and easily-accessible transit
  • For international candidates: Sponsorship for an immediate work permit through Canada's Global Talent Stream and in many cases, expedited permanent residency and a path to citizenship


What You'll Experience


  • Exposure and engagement with world-class start-ups where you will be helping to build the next big thing many times over
  • A team-based environment where our culture and community are deeply rooted in our core values
  • A diverse and inclusive workplace; we know conscious and subconscious discrimination exists and we work hard to uncover and remove biases and barriers, so everyone realizes their actual - not perceived - potential
  • Opportunity.  And lots of it.
