Data Engineer

Department: Tech

Who are we?

Tapio is a fast-growing start-up headquartered in Brussels. Our mission is to help companies transition to a low carbon economy. We've developed a carbon management software that provides companies with the toolbox they need to understand and act on their carbon emissions.

What are we looking for?

Tapio is building the most complete data set on the carbon emissions of the global economy. With the help of our customers, we collect activity and emissions data across global supply chains, which we combine with research data sets and our forecasts and models.
We are looking for a team member who is excited to own the data model, production pipelines, and product surface-area associated with this carbon dataset. You will be joining as one of the very first people at Tapio and will shape everything that comes next. You are likely a good fit if you have experience working with challenging datasets in production systems. We're excited for you to bring that experience to Tapio! 
Your background could include a lot of data science or ML work, as long as you also enjoy production engineering too.
Some traits that are important to our company culture: Customer-obsessed, hard-working, inclusive, and optimistic. And we’re looking for owners, so we hope you’ll help us expand this list.
