Data Engineer

Nydalen, Oslo
Product & Tech – Infrastructure & IT
Full-time
Kolonial.no is by far the leading online grocery in Norway, but as a company we’re first and foremost an ambitious tech and logistics company - not a classic retailer. We’re one of the fastest growing startups in the Nordics, working with huge, complex challenges in order to make the lives of our customers simpler and easier. Want to join us?

Our goal is to create the world's most efficient retail system. Through smart work, passionate customer focus and our own technology we make a difference in the lives of thousands of customers and change society for the better through a completely re-imagined value chain for grocery shopping.

Our customers save more than 60 hours a year, time we believe can be better spent than going to the store. Our effective value chain and logistics save society tonnes of food waste each year and each additional electric vehicle on the road through our distribution network replace almost 13,000 individual trips by car to the grocery store each year.

As a Data engineer you will be a part of a visionary Product & Tech team organised in cross functional product teams with software engineers, designers, product managers and data scientists. You’ll build the powerful data platform that powers our entire shopping experience and our logistics, enabling a great data-driven culture.
