Senior Data Quality Engineer

Boston, MA /
Engineering /

Whether companies produce computers, drugs, berries, or detergent, they have to get those goods from their facility to the consumer.  Unfortunately, over $100B of goods are lost or damaged while in transit.  Tive eliminates this waste by allowing companies to act on in-transit incidents before they happen.

The Tive tracker is a small device that measures the condition of a shipment (location, temperature, shock, etc.) and sends that information to the Tive web application where customers can configure what happens when the tracker detects an issue.  Tive customers join because of the market leading product, but stay because everyone on the Tive team goes above and beyond to ensure their shipments arrive safely.


Tive is looking for an experienced data engineer with strong data quality skills to help lead our company in its next phase of growth.
In this position, you will be responsible for implementing an automated data quality monitoring system and automated ETL testing at the enterprise level. We are expecting a large increase in data volume in 2022 and this system will be a critical part of the infrastructure being developed to ensure that we can continue to deliver the best possible information and service to our customers as we scale out.


    • Strong analytical skills with the ability to analyze, profile and validate data to identify potential data quality issues 
    • Hands on data validation experience on AWS or similar cloud technologies and SQL databases
    • Experience working with large streaming time series datasets
    • Strong knowledge of statistics and relevant data profiling algorithms
