Senior Data Analyst Opportunity at Engineering Analytics Tech Scale-up


Information & Communication TechnologyDevelopers/Programmers

Are you a data scientist, analyst or mechanical engineer with a passion for problem solving? At MaxMine we are developing a new data collection and analytics platform to improve open pit mining operations across the globe. We solve real problems with innovative and tangible solutions that actually stick.

With so much hype in our space, and a solution that delivers real value, our clients can’t get enough of our services, and we need more help to continue delivery and grow our offering.

About Us

Mining operations deal in massive scale operational problems. They ‘lift and shift’ millions of tonnes of material and consume hundreds of millions of dollars per year in operating expenses. A 1% improvement across load and haul fleets can add literally millions to their bottom lines. We are delivering these improvements to our clients across Africa and Australia.

MaxMine is an automated business improvement product which performs advanced analytics and data science on truck operational data to deliver significant cost savings and productivity gains to global miners.  We apply engineering science and mathematics to operational data that we collect with our hardware. We store and analyse this data via our cloud platform and deliver results straight into client’s operations.

Our approach is the future of Professional Consulting Services, and everything that we do, and how we do it reflects this. We are a value focused tech company, which happens to work across Operational and Engineering domains in the Mining Services industry. With a growing client base and rapid expansion of services, analytics and operations we have a range of interesting projects which will have an impact.
