ABOUT THE COMPANY
Milk Moovement is building a world-class team focused on getting the right milk to the right place at the right time.
Our growing herd of employees is driven to provide our clients with the data they need to make critical decisions that impact their operations and ultimately your favourite dairy products.
Who is Milk Moovement you might ask? We are a young VC-backed company with humble roots and massive ambitions to disrupt the dairy supply chain. We think differently, act nimbly, and always leave things better than we found them.
We're expanding our team to further our mission. Find us out on Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn (@milkmoovement), and our home page to learn more or hit “apply” below!
This role is remote but we require candidates to be located in Canada
We’re hiring a Data Engineer to join our team! As an Engineer working on our Platform team you will help develop, implement and maintain systems and processes that will transform raw data so that end users and stakeholders can easily work with it. Here are some examples of things you might do:
Develop and maintain new and existing ETL pipelines
Continuously improve overall performance of all data infrastructure and technology stack
Engage in design sessions to build new data products for the platform
Assist with best practices for development and deployment
You will be part of a cross-functional team distributed across North America but with offices in Halifax and St. John’s. You should be comfortable coming to our offices if nearby, and not shy on Zoom and Slack if remote.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
Milk Moovement seeks to have a diverse, inclusive, team-oriented, and curiosity-driven herd. Our technical team lives to find unique solutions to the challenges inherent to digital supply chains, and we expect you will be excited to do so as well. You must have prior experience with data engineering, but experience working in the dairy industry is not required! We will teach you all there is to know about the industry beginning with our Dairy 101 course. It is definitely more complicated than you think and that is why we do what we do! You will likely have been working with big data to help businesses solve real-world problems. You have an aptitude for engineering, big data architecture, and experience implementing various data engineering patterns including but not limited to Warehousing, Modeling, Analytics and ingestion from multiple data sources. You like getting your hands dirty with data, and are passionate about turning raw data into something useful for business. You are proficient in SQL and Python, and are eager to be part of an area of growth for Milk Moovement.
