Job Details

Senior Data Engineer

Leading Financial Services organisation is seeking a Senior Data Engineer to join their rapidly scaling Data & Analytics team.

This organisation is about to embark upon an exciting greenfield Snowflake implementation and can offer you the chance to broaden your data skills on this cutting edge data platform.  

You don’t need to have previous Snowflake experience (you will get plenty of exposure and training in this role) but you will need to bring broad skills in Data Engineering and Data Warehouse development.  Skills in Data Ingestion, Data Integration and designing and implementing ETL pipelines on various technologies and ideally some Data Modelling experience would also be advantageous.  

This role will see you lead a small team of Data Engineers, operating in an environment where processes are yet to be fully set in stone and where you will have to deal with ambiguity.  You will therefore need to set the direction and take your team on a journey as you lead the design, build and implementation of Data pipelines onto the Snowflake platform from a variety of input data source formats, frequencies and latencies. You will work with key business consumers to prototype, build and enhance data interfaces, reporting data marts and analytical models and will play a key role in leading the charge with innovation and experimentation, driving an automation first mindset.

To be considered you will be a Senior Data Engineer with the following skills and experience:

- Really strong datawarehouse fundamentals across data quality, profiling and modelling
- Experienced in ETL/ELT techniques integrating into Data Warehouse solutions
- Solid understanding of Relational Databases & Data Warehouse methodology such as Kimball, Inmon & Data Vault.
- Knowledge of various architectures and methodologies like metadata management, performance management and handling data quality issues
- Experience working in a DevOps environment including Agile, Scrum or Kanban project management methodology
- Developing in Cloud environments such as Azure, Snowflake, AWS, etc.

Alongside these skills, you must also be a keen learner, inquisitive towards new technologies and methods and will have a positive, team-focused attitude and mindset as well as strong problem-solving skills.

On top of the training and exposure to cutting edge tech mentioned above you can expect a competitive salary of £65k-£75k plus an annual bonus (9%) and a superb 12% non-contributory pension. Other perks include private medical, life, 25 days holiday and flex bens including discounted gym and dental. There are also superb Maternity/Paternity schemes and a range of other family/lifestyle benefits.

This is a hybrid role with lots of flexibility to work from home. That said, you can expect to visit the office occasionally and the office locations are in Swindon, Wiltshire and Fareham, Hampshire. Fully remote is not on offer for this role and the team still get great value of having face time on projects, collaborating, training, etc. Of course, if you prefer being in the office more frequently this is also possible.

If you are a Senior Data Engineer who wants to make a real impact in a global FS business AND get to grips with the latest cloud tech then APPLY NOW
