About ThinkData Works

ThinkData helps organisations turn any data into fuel for their business. Whether sourcing new streams of public data or transforming existing internal information, ThinkData Work's platform, Namara, acts as a data refinery, serving up ideal data capable of powering enterprise solutions.

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 – but there has also never been more opportunity.

Our mission at ThinkData Works 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.

We need a Software Developer to join the Namara Product Team. Someone to help us build and scale our product and contribute to the roadmap. A Software Developer works side-by-side with other Engineers and Product Owners to shepherd requirements all the way from inception to delivery. The insight and decisions that you provide are invaluable to the future development of the Namara platform.

What’s in it for you?

The chance to make an impact. We want someone with the confidence and experience to make decisions and make a difference as a driving force on the Namara team.

Access to new tech. At ThinkData we don’t shy away from bleeding edge tech. We encourage you to experiment, test and push the boundaries through research and development.

New builds. You will utilize, contribute to, and build upon open source tech, you will build a new, unique product, adding features, addressing change requests and incorporating user feedback into the product roadmap.

A clean slate. We have new ideas to develop and we are open to new concepts. This is a chance to develop products and APIs on a virtual blank page and introduce your own ideas for future products.

So, how do we know that’s you? You can:

Push us to the next level. With three years hands-on experience developing enterprise apps and exposure to data analytics products, you bring expertise in Ruby-on-Rails and other open source tech such as Go, Docker, ElasticSearch and PostgreSQL. You can work across our full stack, pick up new tech easily and build out our platform. Familiarity with Java, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Angular and React is an asset.

Innovate solutions to complex problems. Communication and decisiveness are key as is the ability to weigh the opinions of others. You can confidently make software design decisions.
Collaborate. You can mentor the team, work autonomously and as a contributing team member.

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.

Rock climb or rock out. 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 musicians floating around. We’re guessing it’s a precision art-perfectionist thing.

Need more reasons to join?

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’re not saying this involves a beer keg, guitars and campfires. But we’re not saying it doesn’t.

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’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’s always a co-worker with a gig coming up and we go out to cheer them on.

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.
