Working alongside machine learning scientists and joining an established team of Data Engineers, they will play an important part in the staging and development of the AWS infrastructure, capturing technical requirements, building data pipelines and delivering solutions to the team, whilst keeping the company’s wider goals in mind. It is an Agile environment, using serverless architecture, as well as continuous development and integration.

The friendly team work to a hybrid model, however they do meet in the Cambridge office regularly so the role would not be completely remote.

  • Established skills in either Python or Julia
