Like the idea of supporting company-wide decisions?

Then Jobber might be the place for you! We’re looking for a Data Engineer to be part of our Business Technology team in our Business Operations (BizOps) Department.

Jobber exists to help people in small businesses be successful. As featured in the Globe and Mail, we work with home and field service companies to help them better quote, schedule, invoice and collect payments from their customers. Having been named the #2 fastest growing software company in Canada and one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in 2020, it’s clear we’ve come a long way from our first customer in 2011 – but we’ve just scratched the surface of what we want to accomplish for our customers.   

The team:

Business Technology is the engineering team within Business Operations, our internal consulting department – they’re the decision support mechanism that connects data, business insights and an internal tech stack (systems) with the rest of the organization. In essence, BizOps is a central function that exists to drive business outcomes in all corners of Jobber’s ecosystem.

The role: 

Reporting to the Senior Manager, Business Technology, the Data Engineer will work on our Business Technology team which develops internal software, integrations and data infrastructure. Our work unlocks improved operational outcomes, workflow efficiencies and new business insights across our organization. We help teams leverage data, tools and technology in order to successfully execute on their own mandates. We research, develop and maintain systems which support other internal teams from an operational and analytical perspective.

We’re looking for people who are ready for their next challenge, and want to use their experience to influence people, processes and decisions. 

The Data Engineer will

  • Build the foundation of our growth. Design, build and maintain batch and real time data pipelines in cloud infrastructure (preferably AWS). Build scripts, tools, serverless applications and workflows.
  • Set up our internal teams for success. Internal process improvements such as automating manual processes, building alerting/monitoring tools. Collaborate closely with other teams to build tools, frameworks, reports to run experiments, analyze A/B test results, enable insights.
  • Be a business accelerator. Work with analysts, data scientists and product teams to extract actionable insights from data that shape the direction of the company.
  • Participate in strategic planning. Lead initiatives to research, analyze and propose new technologies and tooling for our data engineering stack. Participate in design and code reviews – learn from your peers and teach your peers. Solve problems with technology and make decisions backed by data.

  • 3+ years of experience as a Data Engineer or a similar role

  • Solid coder with Javascript, Python and Bash
  • Familiar with BI tools
  • Experience in developing and operating high-volume, high-available and scalable environments
  • Strong communication skills, with the ability to collaborate with both non-technical and technical team members.

It would be really great (but not a deal-breaker) if you had:

  • Using templated SQL in your ETL pipeline (eg. DBT)
  • Experience with Integrations, APIs and working within their limitations.
