BlueDot is growing and as a result we are looking for a Senior Data Engineer to join our Data Engineering team.
You will contribute to creating, expanding, and optimizing data pipelines to build upon our data platform. You have a solid geospatial foundation and thrive on writing complex queries, working with big data, and enjoy automating data pipelines and workflows. You will solve problems with data integration and be working with data that has an impact on global connectivity all the way to local areas of analysis. You will be working with both structured and unstructured datasets that are both spatial and non-spatial in nature.
Who we are:
BlueDot protects people around the world from infectious diseases using human and artificial intelligence. Our software-as-a-service solution combines medical and public health expertise with advanced data analytics to track, contextualize, and mitigate infectious disease risks. Our global early warning system combines more than 100 datasets with proprietary algorithms to deliver critical insights on the spread of infectious diseases. In December 2019, we flagged an undiagnosed respiratory syndrome in Wuhan, China. In January 2020, we published the world's first scientific paper on COVID-19, accurately predicting its global spread. Our team understands the complexity of the challenge in front of us – and that the urgency to solve the problem has never been greater.
We are a Certified B Corp, have a Glassdoor rating of 4.7, are Diversio certified, a 2020 LinkedIn Top Start-Up and have been recognized as a Top 50 Best Place to Work in Canada, Best Place to Work for Women, Best in Technology, Best for Youth, and Best Start-Up!
Driven by a Purpose Bigger than Ourselves
United by a common purpose to create a healthier, safer, and more secure world, free from the impacts of dangerous infectious diseases, we understand the complexity of the challenge in front of us, and that it is so much bigger than any one of us. Together, we are motivated to positively impact lives around the world, to do no harm, and to elevate each other through respect and encouragement. Building careers through collaborative discovery and learning, our people tackle complex challenges with diverse expertise not assembled elsewhere. We promote personal fulfillment in the workplace by removing barriers, politics, and exclusion, believing in the philosophy that by creating a positive environment we all have the opportunity do the most meaningful work of our lives.
