Aquabyte is seeking a Senior Data Engineer to design and operate a robust and scalable data platform that enables fish farm's sustainable operations across the world.

Our mission 

Aquabyte is on a mission to revolutionize the sustainability and efficiency of aquaculture. It is an audacious, and incredibly rewarding mission. By making fish farming cheaper and more viable than livestock production, we aim to mitigate one of the biggest causes of climate change and help prepare our planet for impending population growth. Aquaculture is the single fastest growing food-production sector in the world, and now is the time to define how technology is used to harvest the sea and preserve for generations to come.

We are a diverse, mission-driven team that is eager to work alongside kindred spirits. If this vision makes you smile, gives you goosebumps, or otherwise inspires you please get in touch.

Our product

We are currently focused on helping salmon farmers better understand their fish populations and make environmentally-sound decisions. Through custom underwater cameras, computer vision, and machine learning we are able to quantify fish weights, detect the health status, and generate optimal feeding plans in real time. Our product operates at three levels: on-site hardware for image capture, cloud pipelines for data processing, and a user-facing web application. As a result, there are hundreds of moving pieces and no shortage of fascinating challenges across all levels of the stack.

Above all, Aquabyte is a customer-driven company. Our product development is dictated by the needs of fish farmers and we prioritize customer delight in everything we do. We are committed to build a global, collaborative team that creates value far beyond Silicon Valley.

The role

Our fleet of undersea monitoring devices are generating streams of images and telemetry data. The data engineer’s role and responsibility is to build the data pipeline to capture, transform, and analyze data to generate insight for the customers. You will optimize and scale up the system to meet growing demand, as well as to productionize evolving and novel applications. In addition, you will build tools to monitor for data reliability and manage proper operation of the fleet of IoT devices.
