We need detail oriented, architecturally strong data focused software developers who know how to get things done, and who can lead and design the technical components of a project.

We’re not picky about what tools, languages or frameworks you know. We want to know about how smart you are and what you’ve accomplished. Whatever your platform of choice. Our belief is that if you have the “right stuff” learning a new language or framework is much easier than learning how to be the kind of motivated leader who will succeed here at Klick.

Of course this assumes you’re open-minded about the tools you use and more interested in the type and complexity of the problems you’ll get to solve than the tools you’ll use to solve them.

We’re looking for a Platform Data Architect to elevate our product team approach and process with regards to database structure, ETLs, data-warehouse, BI and dashboarding. Creating data marts should be second nature and already come to the table with best practices and knowledge of industry best in class solutions.

You’re the right fit if…
Your enthusiasm is infectious. You challenge the status quo. You find solutions to problems. You go the extra mile to exceed customers expectations. You get things done the right way. You like to get your hands dirty. You represent our product with passion and pride. You are a team player. You have fun and you make work fun for those working around you.
