Cloud, data and AI are changing how the world works and what is now possible. However, taking advantage of data is hard and organisations are often weighed down by legacy technology that slows their ability to take advantage of these opportunities.

Databricks is shifting the thinking on what a data platform can be and we are a part of that change.

Cuusoo is a dedicated Databricks consultancy. This differentiates us from others, ensuring we're across the latest updates, international case studies and training.

We use Databricks to turn the Cuusoo approach into something tangible. We help businesses reimagine data and its applications using a first principles approach.

As we solve business problems and realise opportunities, we don't let constraints or assumptions from pre-existing processes or platforms limit our ideas.

We're all about overcoming the status quo and helping organisations realise what is possible.

At Cuusoo you'll be involved from the start. You'll be defining a data business from the ground up and helping us to scale it out quickly.

We're also part of Mantel Group's 'house of brands' which means it's not just the Cuusoo team you'll work with, learn from and see at social events there's another 550+ of us across Eliiza, DigIO, Kasna, CMD Solutions, Pretzel lab, Azenix and Itty Bitty Apps!

So you're ready for something new?

As a Lead Databricks Consultant with Cuusoo you will work with other smart, passionate and skilled people to turn visions of what could be into reality using Databricks.

With our diverse range of clients and projects, no day will look the same but here's a great snapshot of some of what you could be doing :

Why Cuusoo?

You'll be part of building an organisation that does data differently. We take a different approach that lets us reimagine problems and create more impactful solutions as a result.

You'll become an integral part of a growing team that is backed up by a successful house of brands.

We're completely focused on Databricks, and we're planning to become the most highly trained and certified Databricks professionals in the Australia and New Zealand region

We make sure you're always one step ahead by investing in your learning and development, every year. We build our own training where it doesn't exist yet - it's in our best interest to teach you things you don't already know.

We believe in unique experiences for all. Our 'My Deal' program allows you to tailor your yearly plan, with the support of your Leader, to decide on what's most important to you.

That might be extra annual or parental leave, extra professional development, time to work on your own side-hustle, or something else completely different! One size does not fit all

We want each person to tailor their working conditions whether that be working remotely or taking advantage of our awesome Work Hubs across Australia and New Zealand, like our Hub on Magnetic Island for when you feel like working in a tropical paradise.

You'll be joining a passionate and supportive team who'll move mountains to help you achieve your objective.

You'll get all the tools you need - a new iPhone or Google phone, a new Macbook Pro or HP Elitebook, and a lot of branded swag!

Join Australia's 2021 #1 Best Workplace in the Medium category as awarded by Great Places to Work Australia.

But hold on, you mentioned a house of brands?

We certainly did! Mantel Group is an Australian-owned, 'house of brands' company with seven technology businesses (Cuusoo being one of them!) across Australia and New Zealand.

We're building a group of companies with open borders so we can support you to take on new skills and challenges without leaving an awesome team - we know you won't have one job for life! We hire smart people and get out of their way.

By focusing on our five principles and not getting caught up in red tape, we trust you to get the job done.
