What we’re looking for:

A Cloud Data Engineer who takes pride in building robust data pipelines, using tools aligned with infrastructure-as-code methodology, and with a keen interest in database design.

We’re looking to mature our data platform, so we would benefit from experience in implementing quality controls and deploying ML models in production.

We’re operating in AWS and want someone who is already familiar with the platform. Our Data Lake is up and running and internal data is being used regularly across the business for reporting.

The next phase is to mature the platform and set up additional data modules that will be the foundation for our business objectives next year. So this is a great time to join the team and an excellent opportunity for someone who likes to make an impact!

What you’ll do:

Work alongside 2 existing data engineers to mature our big data architecture. This will involve implementing data pipelines using DataBricks and data checks using Soda and Datadog.

You’ll develop a deep understanding of the data we capture - understanding all of our source data and its idiosyncrasies.

Work collaboratively with our analyst team to understand business needs and find scalable solutions to new requirements. Investigating issues and providing support so that the data reported is accurate and complete.

What success looks like for this role in the short term:

  • In 3 months you will be up to speed on our architecture and be able to implement new integration jobs to our platform
  • In 6 months you will understand our data and have implemented robust quality and completeness checks between the layers of our data lake

How we work together:

We are primarily London based working in a hybrid model. We meet regularly in the office for collaboration or socials but communicate daily on slack, zoom and hangouts.

Our daily stand-ups give you the opportunity to explain your goals for the day and highlight any areas where you need help. We will manage our projects & communication through Jira, notion and slack.


It’s the perfect role for you if you have:

  • Hands-on experience creating robust ETL pipelines, using big data tools (3 years+)
  • Experience ingesting data from external sources
  • Worked with DataBricks
  • Working knowledge of AWS components, e.g. Redshift, S3, CloudFormation
  • Advanced knowledge of Python
  • Willingness to learn new tools & technologies

⭐️ It’s a plus if you have:

  • Previously worked in a start-up environment
  • Experience with data observability & monitoring tools such as soda and datadog
  • Experience with DBT
  • Managed an environment for training and calling ML models
  • Exposure to Business Intelligence tools such as Tableau, Looker, or Mode Analytics
