Job Description

Software Developers

Location: Chicago

We are looking for Software Developers to join our data ingestion and enrichment teams. These teams build systems to reliably capture and land data in our Data Lake, transform this to store it within our Data Warehouse, then automatically enrich it or provide tools for our colleagues to manually refine the data ahead of its presentation to clients.

Why join Mintel? We are the world’s leading market intelligence agency, and technology underpins our success. We help our clients understand consumers and consumer markets, and we aspire to provide the market intelligence behind every great business decision. Our technology allows us to deliver data, insights, and opinions in a compelling way to our clients across the globe.

This role has the option of sitting in our US headquarters office in Chicago or working remotely in the United States (in all states aside from Delaware, Iowa, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania and West Virginia ) as long as the individual has eligible working rights in the US. Interviews and onboarding are currently being conducted virtually.

What You Will Be Doing:

  • Join a diverse, high-functioning agile team
  • Develop key features for our data applications and data processing platform
  • Produce consistent, high quality code by following industry best practices and company standards
  • Design new data pipelines, ingestion, and enhancement processes
  • Review requirements and specifications, developing and implementing tests for quality and performance assurance
  • Be responsible for the quality of the data infrastructure while focusing on continuous improvement and automation

Who We Are Looking For:

Naturally Curious: You are naturally curious, looking for new opportunities to learn and adapt to the variety of technologies and frameworks our systems use.

Tech-Savvy: You are well-versed in web technology and applications, bringing a highly skilled approach to your day-to-day, constantly learning about what is new or next, and sharing learnings with the team. You ideally have more of a back-end focus in development but will be full-stack.

A Collaborator: You develop and encourage internal relationships, with technical and non-technical colleagues alike. You seek out opportunities to collaborate with peers in your department and in an agile software development process.

Committed to Personal Growth: You are committed to continuous learning and growth, pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone to develop your skill set.

Self-Directed: You are confident and driven on your projects. You have an aptitude for identifying and solving problems, both technical and organizational, and clearly outlining plans and risks for your work.

Mintel does not offer sponsorship for this particular role, and so at this time, we are only able to consider candidates who do not have limitations in their ability to work in the United states long-term.
