£50k - £75k

Building a big data platform in the cloud

We are seeking a Data Engineer with good Python skills, and a thorough understanding of data engineering concepts to join a growing engineering team based in Cambridge. The role would involve developing an entirely new cloud-based data platform which will replace and improve upon an existing Python / Talend - based product, enabling more up-to-date features, and allowing increasing integration with other software and services.

You will need to be:

  • Academically strong, with a 1st or 2.1 degree in an applicable STEM subject from a well-respected university
  • Adept in coding with Python, able to create complex and well-structured Python code
  • Familiar with data lake / data warehousing concepts such as data mapping, data transformations, and data quality
  • Eligible to work in the UK without restriction, time limit, or sponsorship

Knowledge of Talend, Snowflake, QlikView, Power BI, or Tableau would be a bonus.

The role is based at the company’s offices in Cambridge, with some flexibility on remote working. In the early stages you may be collaborating remotely with New York-based colleagues while the UK team come up to speed. The team enjoys a fun, start-up-like culture within the security of an established organisation. A generous remuneration and benefits package is on offer for the successful candidate.
