Developer - Data Scientist/analytics/AI
MiX Telematics - South Africa, Cape Town, Remote

Data Engineer

Ref: 32| Posted: 18th May 2021

Department: Software, SaaS

Location: Remote

Are you the type of Data Engineer who enjoys developing new ways to make a system work? We are looking for Data Engineers who are unafraid of trailblazing and forging new paths, using unexpected technologies. If you enjoy working to find the ‘golden path’ and don’t mind getting your hands dirty, then this is the role for you.

You’d be working on a new project and would need to enjoy a strong development focus in your work. It is a purely ETL-focused position and would suit you well if you are comfortable processing data (not analytics) from the first line of code, right through to production.

The Software Development department is sectioned into Software Domain Teams, each having 'ownership' of their IP (Technology choices, architecture, best practices, DevOps) and an appropriate degree of autonomy. This provides the best of both worlds having the feel of a small 'start up' team while also having the security of being part of a well-established and stable business.

Our cross-functional teams are passionate about collaboration and sharing knowledge, as well as working with a high degree of autonomy. As a Data Engineer at MiX Telematics, you will be encouraged to embrace the latest technological updates and given a platform to work on complex, interesting problems daily.

Background:

●      Must have 3+ years: PostgreSQL, Apache Spark, AWS Glue, Python, Pyspark, CloudFormation, AWS Cloud Tech experience, C#

●      Advantageous: AWS Athena, DevOps, Docker, Fargate

Traits:
