SensorUp software is the fabric that interconnects the world’s IoT data empowering the connected workers of the future to apply intelligent automation for productivity, safety, quality, and job satisfaction.  SensorUp provides a platform with services for Data Ingress, Batch Data Processing, Continuous Data Processing, Data Process Orchestration, Platform Management as well as a SaaS capability which extends the platform level capabilities with Workflow Management, Assets,  Digital Twin and Mobility layers that enable our customers and our team to create end to end solutions.  

We are looking for our Lead Data Engineer to help build out our Platform services. Currently, we employ a modular architecture where data pipelines and tasks are managed by specifications and can operate as continuous or batch tasks.
