Responsibilities

We are looking for individuals who are highly driven to succeed with a strong desire to build a career in the data field.

You will fit right in to our Data Mining & Categorisation team if you posses the following traits:

1. Resilience in solving problems

Possessing almost a kind of stubborn confidence, Individuals of this nature believe that problems are made to be solved and not avoided. Often you will try many different ways instead of giving up when presented with obstacles.

If you have a reputation for being a quitter or throws the first excuse that comes in mind when presented with a challenge, this role is not for you.

2. Scrupulous is your middle name

You are known amongst your friends to be the person who enjoy details and you do not shun from unravelling them.

When presented texts like this,

 

"normalize-space(//div[@class='special-price']/span[@class='price']/text())”,

 

you believe it is just a matter of spending time to understand versus being overwhelmed with fear of failure.

 

3. Believes in efforts and results versus hours

Here at Shoppr, we do not believe in counting the hours you spend in the office. We are one of the only few results oriented work environment (ROWE) where you have the choice to come in to the office at 10AM instead of spending your time in the jam at 9AM. What matters more to us that you are an independent adult who is capable of managing your own schedule so you can do the best work possible.

 

We believe in an integrated work life. That means you should not burn yourself out from work, but neither should you shun from work when it is required after the official working days. Our official working days are from Monday to Friday but in the event of a system issue on the weekends, you will be expected to allocate time to fix the issue. Any work done on the weekend can be done at home and no office presence is required. If you desire a cushy 9-5 job with weekends absolutely off limits, this is not for you.

 

4. Strong aptitude to learn

You will be required to learn a lot of new things. If you are aware that change makes you uncomfortable, do reconsider your career choice in technology. Technology is fast paced, fun and we have access to the latest know-hows in the industry. Here at Shoppr, you will be part of a team that continues to learn and grow in both industry knowledge and technical skills.
