Xcede's Data Engineering and Data Science department are working with one of the largest global financial institutions, who are currently looking to re-write the preconceived notion of endless red tape associated with banking and data. This team is looking to bring on-board a Cloud Implementation Engineer to handle (arguably) one of the company's biggest digital projects.

The project itself would be to design, develop and implement a multi-cloud solution to create a 'new normal' when data is ingested into the organization. This would mean, a mass migration of all the data on-premises to the multi-cloud architecture designed (by you and a team of like-minded individuals) from whiteboarding to launch. This would be incorporating every facet of the Digital office from Analytics to Machine Learning and AI Solutions.


-Taking a multi-cloud solution from POC to launch.
-Designing, Developing and implementing a multi-cloud solution with the following tools/technologies (AWS - Amazon Web Services, GCP - Google Cloud Platform, Azure)
-Leading/building Data Science/Engineering teams across a variety of sectors (financial experience not a must)
-Understanding and helping to define an operating model for the team and future cloud products.
-Understanding the challenge ahead and what would be needed to change.


-Extensive commercial experience with Big Data Tools & Technologies (Kafka, Spark, Hadoop).
-Strong commercial experience leading and building teams of Data Engineers and Data Scientists.
-Commercial experience in deployment orchestration.
-Strong commercial experience with one of the following scripting/programming languages (Python, Java, Scala).
-Extensive commercial experience with one (or more) of the following cloud solutions (AWS - Amazon Web Services, GCP - Google Cloud Platform, Azure)
