Lead Data Engineer

Full time


Can you make our data say whoosh?

Is your favorite time unit milliseconds? Do you feel a tingling sensation when we challenge you to make stable data deliveries to a vessel stuck in the ice, while lying a new internet cable North of Alaska? Reading the words “massive multi-dimensional ​array” immediately makes your brain spin, envisioning the data, and getting ideas how these can be stored and accessed. Can you make our data swish from Europe, to the East coast of USA, via Texas to Brazil, and from Brazil to our data scientists in Bergen, Norway who will feed it to one of our deep learned, neural networks? Can you make our data say whoosh? And, you have read this text without thinking about floppy disks? Then, we would very much like to talk to you.

We expect you to be highly skilled in computational science, writing code you are proud of, and making coffee when the pot is almost empty. The perfect candidate is a structured thinker, has drive and desire, and will advise on latest technology.
