Xcede's Data Engineering team are working with one of the UK's biggest brands, who are currently looking to bring on board a Data Engineer/Architect to join a small but dedicated team that are looking at taking the next step of their data evolution by revolutionising the way data is conceived within the business.

As the first Data Engineer/Architect, you'd be handling the near Greenfield build of various data stores/warehouses/lakes to enable best practice within the small (but growing) Data & Analytics team. Specifically, the role would give you access to the wider architectural designs of what this greenfield data & analytics team would be handling and not just the builds of Data Pipelines and ETL Processes.

The company itself is a global multi-billion-dollar entity but hasn't lost that start-up hunger that enabled them to become one of the UK's most beloved Apps.

Responsibilities:
-Handling the design, building and implementation of various data warehouses and data stores within a near-greenfield Data & Analytics team.
-Working within a very flat structure, where you will be able to stand your ground against senior stakeholders and suggest best practice without ego.
-Handling the Engineering & Architecture of data pipelines from various websites, mobile apps and internal sources.

Requirements:
-Strong commercial experience with Google Cloud Platform (Cloud Storage, BigQuery, BigQuery Data Transfer)
-Good commercial experience with one of the following programming languages (Python, Java, Scala)
-Ideally, some commercial exposure to Docker or Kubernetes.
-Advanced SQL.
-A lack of Ego and willingness to listen.
