Principal Software Engineer aka Artist, Architect and Master Carpenter
Every year in Canada alone, 2.4 billion kilograms of food are wasted in supply chains between farm and fork. That's a big problem to solve in a world that needs to feed 9 billion people by 2050. Fiddlehead is a venture-backed startup using data science to help global food and beverage manufacturers make better forecasting decisions. Cool fact: There is a 33% chance that any french fry you have eaten in the last year appeared in our statistical models. Yep?we love numbers. If you do too, you could be the principal developer we're looking for.
Here's the deal. We could rattle off the standard wish list for a senior full-stack java developer like every other job post you've seen. But we value directness and intellectual honesty. If you're truly the kind of gal or guy that has the technical chops to join our team, you already have a pretty good idea of what we're looking for. So what are you waiting for? Right now you could be helping us move to a NoSQL database. Or tackling the concurrency issues that come with running our analytics engine in AWS to evaluate billions of statistical models for our customers. Or writing code. Lots and lots of beautiful, world changing lines of code.
It's a given that the salary, stock options, and health benefits we provide need to be competitive with those other jobs you will soon turn down (or leave) in order to come work with us. We get it. We have families too. What we're offering you is the opportunity to have a big impact on a small team and be well rewarded for it as your role grows along with our company. If you're still reading this, you should send us your résumé to start the conversation. Better still? stop by our office. Or pop into Isac's Korean restaurant (St George St., Moncton) on any given Thursday and join us for lunch. The bibimbap will be on us.
