Data Engineer

  • Leeds

  • £35,000

As a Data Engineer, you’ll work closely with the Delivery team, utilising a variety of Agile methodologies (Scrum, DSDM, Kanban), building data solutions for clients. You can approach a piece of work conceptually and think about the whole experience and apply your problem-solving skills to a wide range of challenges.
Maybe you learned your skills during a degree, on the job or are just a data fanatic, either way, you’re comfortable using your skills to explain concepts to anyone, no matter how senior or inexperienced. You can tell a story and bring stakeholders with you on the journey, and you know how to balance ambition with pragmatism.
You’re enthusiastic, curious and full of ideas. You keep up to speed with the latest trends and technology developments and you want to build show-stopping experiences that delight clients and bring value to the business.
This role is a great chance to develop your skills, share your experience and grow with a cutting edge, highly respected and loved company in Leeds.

The Successful Person:

  • Has worked with a range of scripting/OO/functional languages and maintain a broad knowledge of the technology landscape.
  • Comfortable working on enterprise-scale projects, utilising best-practice methodologies, well-tested code and elegant solutions.
  • Happy to spend as much time thinking about tests and security as on writing code.
  • Is proactive and uses their network and problem-solving skills to get support when needed. Build bridges with people across the business.
  • Communicates effectively and is open to feedback from others whilst being willing to stand their ground on key issues.
  • Takes every opportunity to collaborate and share thinking. Is able to give credit to others and be part of a team, rather than a solo artist.
  • Above all, the Data Engineer must be open to new technologies, quick to adapt, and quick to learn.
Working in an incredible workspace with even more incredible people, this really is an exciting opportunity for someone looking for a company that truly values their teams, who ensures every person is given the right support, training, development, opportunities and not forgetting fun!

What They Can Offer You:

They celebrate their differences and encourage everyone to explore new ways of thinking. The result is a diverse set of individuals who come together to create a multi-talented, cohesive organisation.
Your development is critical to their success, this is why they offer a yearly personal budget to spend on learning new skills, attending conferences or even long-term courses to help you become the master of your domain…they also provide 20% L&D time to use it in!
