We’re thrilled to be assisting our client in their search for a Senior Developer.

Our client is a fast-growing tech consultancy. Combining over 35 years of operational excellence with the incredible possibilities offered by advanced data analytics, they help create long-lasting change for some of the world’s largest organisations.

Headquartered in Leeds, they are super busy with new client wins and are now looking to add a number of mid and senior data developers to the team.

You will play a critical role in building and maintaining the data infrastructure that is needed to enable the analytics projects and products we provide to our clients. This includes software development, visualisation and environments.  Our clients specialise in data and analytics, and are looking for developers who are excited by the ability to work across different problems, projects and clients and who genuinely cares about the end to end data space (including engineering, science, quality, analytics and BI). These are  client-facing roles, focused on helping clients solve operational problems, using data and analytics. An integral part of the analytics team, you will be happy to use modern tools to solve old legacy problems.

Dealing with ambiguity is a critical part of the job, as well as helping the client and internal team focus on specific problem statements and use cases.

Key Responsibilities:

·         Keep up to date with the latest technology

·         Have a base understanding of all backend/frontend & data engineering tech

·         Be able to tell a story with data visualisation tools

Why you will want to work here:

·         You will be joining a small ‘start-up’ team (backed by a 30+yr old brand), who are solving complex operational problems with data and tech

·         You will be given the opportunity to work across different problems, projects and clients

·         Using an opensource toolset, you’ll be working within a close team that is creative with their problem solving

·         As our clients are still small and boutique you have the opportunity to influence and your thoughts and opinions genuinely count
