Cru has a long-standing history of being a pioneer in world Christian Missions. We are looking for the most talented individuals with a passion and a burning desire to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaimed to the nations. At Cru, our Digital Products and Services department creates and innovates technology solutions for the global Church that help to make disciples. We call it Digital Missions.
Who we’re looking For:
We’re looking for a data engineer who is passionate about data and loves to empower analysts to efficiently create direction-setting dashboards. Would you rather spend hours developing a reusable system for importing data than just minutes pulling in a single table? Are you more concerned with creating solutions instead of just fixing problems? Do you care deeply about things like data quality and data security? Do you think “normal” is overrated? Do you see data instead of dragons in the Cloud? Are the “lakes” you frequent filled with bytes instead of bass?
If you have been answering “yes” to all the above and desire to be an integral part of fulfilling the Great Commission, to make Jesus known to the ends of the earth, we are quite possibly looking for you!
