To be successful in this role, you will need to have a solid understanding of the end to end data journey, right from the source application database, to the end-user visualisation tool. This role will see you understanding the key business needs and subsequently designing and building solutions to suit. You will need to extract data from complex applications and products and ensure that data is accessible and structured in a way to simplify reporting. You will also be working with other members of the team to build reliable, secure, and cost effective solutions. Experience working with data warehouses and/or data lakes is required.

Strong communication skills and the ability to work effectively on your own, or as part of a team is essential to this role. If you have a Power BI and SQL background that will be beneficial to your application.

Our client are looking for someone with some strong experience behind them to come in and work in a growing team within a growing business. You will be given plenty of training and coaching and there is huge potential for quick career progression with this role. You'll be given access and training on new platforms and technologies as you become familiar with the company and can really carve out a niche for yourself within data engineering.

In return, you'll be given a salary of up to £55k, plus the chance to work on a fully remote basis. They offer plenty of benefits and perks, including good holiday allowances, private medical, and give their employees the chance to get involved with charity and volunteering opportunities.
