6 River Systems (6RS) is a Shopify (SHOP) company leading the way to faster fulfillment. E-commerce has changed the world and our solutions power winning warehouses of the future. We’re revolutionizing warehouse automation with collaborative mobile robots driven by artificial intelligence and advanced cloud-based software.
Our culture is built on trust, smarts, and collaboration. As a team, we encourage open discussion about particularly challenging problems. We are as passionate about hiring the right people as we are about building great products.
We are searching for someone to join our growing Data Insights team, on the Customer Insights Squad. The team works with the customer success manager and directly with customers to identify opportunities to improve the end-to-end 6RS warehouse automation system. We are looking for an inquisitive and creative engineer who will use both data analysis and on-the-ground observations (ie qualitative plus quantitative data) to provide insights into the behavior of the robots, their surroundings and ways to increase the performance of the 6RS system. Candidates should be comfortable using visualizations to extract useful observations from large data sets and presenting the findings to internal and external teams.
In a "typical" day you could interface with customers to identify performance improvement opportunities which might involve traveling to a customer site. While at the office you may work closely with engineering to validate the opportunities; leveraging the data the system is continuously collecting. Finally you will work with product management on getting the more promising features on the road map for development and testing back at customer sites. Our environment/culture is fast-paced, collaborative and encourages innovation and creativity. The ideal candidate will be able to grow with the company and take on additional leadership roles over time. This is a unique opportunity; you will have an immediate impact on the success and growth of our company. This role reports to the Head of the Data Insights Team, which is an integral part of our fast growing Product Management team.
