Big Data Architect - Platform Team

| Denver
GoSpotCheck is 100 of the best and brightest minds in Denver, who all share a common goal: Help large organizations better understand their execution in the field through real-time data collection. Companies with large field teams rely on audits and surveys to measure their performance, but their tools are clunky, outdated, and unreliable. We replace these old school data collection tools, like clipboards and spreadsheets, with an easy-to-use mobile app for field reps and a powerful reporting dashboard for management.
We are a fast growing enterprise SaaS company with millions of mission responses, tens of thousands of users, and customers in 70+ countries, including market leaders like Pepsico, Beam Suntory, Panera Bread, Dannon, Under Armour and more. With triple-digit year over year revenue growth, and $26m in capital raised, we are poised to continue to grow rapidly and become a market leader in the mobile enterprise space. Our offices are located in the lower downtown district of Denver. We take pride in the work we do, and truly love coming to work every day.

What We’ll Achieve
