Job Description

Company Introduction
A leader in B2B eCommerce, Supply Chain Management and Distribution, W.B. Mason has been providing goods and services to American businesses for over 130 years. At W.B., we pride ourselves on our long history of partnering with our customers and vendors to offer innovative, cost effective and customized solutions to an ever-evolving set of business requirements; selling and delivering 15+ product lines into every type of business - from small Mom Pop sandwich shops to large Health Care, Municipality and University systems.

To reach this level of success we’ve continuously invested in technology – and the talent of our dedicated development team. Most recently, W.B. Mason embarked on an ambitious, multi-year digital transformation journey designed to help the Company take advantage of cloud-based technologies across the business. We’re partnering with Microsoft to transform our ERP + CRM capabilities with Dynamics 365 Power Platform; move our eCommerce platform to Azure, and have invested in new platforms and partners such as Adobe and Boomi. One of the most exciting and quickly advancing areas is our adoption of the Microsoft Modern Data Architecture which includes Azure Data Lake, Synapse and MS Fabric.

Joining the technology team at W.B. Mason will provide you with a tremendous opportunity to use the latest solutions to help our stakeholders increase their efficiency through process automation and increase their business insight through comprehensive, real-time data analytics and AI. We’ve made a lot of great progress since we first started our journey, but a lot of work remains to be done and we want to continue to grow our team of passionate, hard-working professionals to help us achieve our bold objectives in the coming years. If this sounds like an exciting mission to you, we look forward to speaking with you soon.

W.B. Mason is looking to add a Senior Azure Data Engineer to support the Company’s digital transformation efforts. We are challenging ourselves to finish the migration of our ERP, eCommerce and Data Warehouse/BI/Analytics platforms to the Microsoft cloud in the coming year.

Fully remote since March 2020, this position will not require in-office work outside of occasional, in-person meetings (infrequent and scheduled in advance) hosted at our Corporate Headquarters office located in Brockton, Massachusetts.
