Lineage Logistics is currently seeking a Data Engineer to join the team. As our Data Engineer, you will be responsible for the ongoing quality, completeness, and performance of key data assets that store and surface data for use cases both inside and outside the organization. As the world’s largest temperature-controlled logistics organization, our supply chain data - especially the data collected from our warehouse and transportation operations - provides the foundation upon which we deliver our services and is critical to both our effectiveness and our sustained leadership position in the industry. This hands-on position requires excellent technical skills including deep knowledge of SQL and associated query tuning, experience with ETL tools and approaches, and comfort with code management.

At Lineage, the aim is not to build the largest IT group; instead we are creating a small, highly skilled team that focuses on having right mix of talents, skills, and the capacity to learn in areas that define our core differentiation. We leverage cloud services, best-of-breed technologies, and external teams to augment our capabilities with sufficient capacity. This means that in addition to being a great technologist and individual contributor, an ideal candidate will need to be able to review and collaborate with others - both internal and external - to ensure that we are collectively able to deliver.

As a company, Lineage builds state-of-the-art systems to make our employees productive, to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations, to assist in our growth, and to create an operating platform that enables Lineage to achieve its vision of transforming the food supply chain. This is a critical role in that journey, and it will require someone who has a true passion for data and associated technologies.

Responsibilities of the Data Engineer:

  • Assist with the creation, modification, and tuning of queries against enterprise data assets including a Cloudera-based data lake and a RDBMS-based operational data store
  • Support the automation of data quality checks and seek to investigate and resolve related issues by debugging all aspects of the data pipeline and correcting problematic data
  • Ensure key data assets are accurate, comprehensive, and available
  • Validate changes to data pipelines including supporting the code promotion flow from non-production to production environments
  • Review the work of data wrangling and ETL resources to ensure accuracy, completeness, and performance
  • Document data assets to facilitate ongoing development, end user reporting, etc.
  • Collaborate with others to solve complex problems and resolve technological disagreements with informed, rational, practical solutions
  • Mentor and provide guidance especially to other technical resources

Required qualifications of the Data Engineer:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or IT Management and/or 6+ years of relevant work experience
  • 4+ years of direct data management experience including at least 2 years spent implementing and supporting data pipelines
  • Demonstrable knowledge of common database, data lake, and business intelligence technologies - e.g. PostgreSQL, Cloudera, and Jaspersoft
  • Thorough knowledge of data technologies and techniques
  • Ability to handle multiple assignments/projects simultaneously
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills including the ability to explain technical concepts to business leaders

Preferred qualifications of the Data Engineer:

  • Prior software development experience
  • Knowledge of supply chain concepts and associated technologies including WMS, TMS, YMS, and related system
