“I am ready to take that next step in my career and become a data engineer”
So, you’ve realised you want to be a data engineer. You have a background in data analytics or development, probably in an agile environment, and you want to take your ETL and data manipulation skills to the next level, but you need to work in a more personable team where you can evolve & hone your skills.
As a person you’re passionate about data, and about what you can do with data – the story you can tell, the insights you can give. You live, eat and breathe data. You’ve got your finger on the pulse of all the latest happenings in the data world and you’re always looking for new ways to innovate and improve.
Hidden away in Leicester is a company who hold the same values as you. A company with a real passion for using data to better their business. 2 years ago they had one data/BI chap, now there are 5 of them, and their Head of Data - the chap who built the entire platform from scratch - is essentially looking for a protégé. Someone to take under his wing & develop into a world-class data engineer.
As the data agenda is evolving at this rapidly expanding business you’ll be working with the wider data & BI team to expand their data capabilities & integrate and embed the platform into more areas of the business.
From a tech perspective you’ll be fully hands-on, designing & running robust cloud-based platforms utilising tech such as AWS / Google / Kafka / Spark and using Python or Java on a daily basis.
CI/CD, pair programming and TDD will become inbuilt into your psyche alongside a “test first” mentality and you’ll build up a breadth of knowledge about non-traditional databases such as NoSQL, MongoDB, MariaDB, Redis, PostgreSQL and so on.
