We’re hipages, Australia’s largest Online Tradie Marketplace, where our team get to help shape the on-demand tradie economy!
What we do:
The hipages product is available as a website and mobile phone application. Our technology is designed for Australian homeowners and tradies, ultimately making it easier for them to connect, communicate and get a home improvement job done well. Over 3 million Australians have used hipages where a home improvement job is posted every 20 seconds!
The Problem we’re solving:
hipages’ mission is to use innovative technologies and superior customer service to transform the tradie-consumer experience from the current feat of mutual endurance to one of effortless efficiency.
Where we are going and Why:
Our Vision is to be THE place to go for home improvement, replacing traditional ways of connecting tradies with consumers such as word-of-mouth and print advertising to our online platform. Our purpose of Creating Happier homes through Effortless Home Improvement drives our curious, creative and energised team to achieve this.
What the Data Team is working on
The hipages platform generates huge volumes of data. This data needs to be shifted, transformed, processed, and analysed in real-time in order to meet our stakeholders’ needs. Within this ecosystem the data-platform team’s remit is to help hipages exploit this data effectively, and is therefore focussed on data-democratization with the strategic vision to create a data-mesh which will enable all our stakeholders (both internally and externally) to self-serve all their data needs.
We’re part way through a broad transformation of our data-platform, and in the next stage we are embarking on greenfield projects to shift our current batch infrastructure (controlled by Airflow, and deployed in Kubernetes) to a full lambda architecture exploiting a whole suite of streaming technologies (e.g. Kafka, Flink, Delta Lake, Apache Beam to name a few). Alongside this, we’re also looking to assess, integrate, and productionise tooling for data governance, lineage and quality.
How you will make an impact:
As the Head of Data in hipages, your mission is to help hipages leverage data as a strategic asset and, through a culture of data democratisation, enable everyone in the company to make rapid data-informed decision making.
