Are you a Data Engineer feeling like you're stuck in the same corporate cycle of not being able to grow and there is too much red-tape bogging you down and halting your progression and personal growth? Are you longing for the chance to work in a scale-up environment, where every day you're growing, learning and genuinely innovating a market that is crying out for innovation?

Then Xcede's Data Engineering and Science team might have the opportunity for you.
I'm currently working with a genuine innovator, disrupting the way financial giants approach a certain sector of the market. Who is looking for a Senior Data Engineer to come on board and not only change the game but flip the board in the way this sector is perceived.

As a Senior Data Engineer, you will be building a near-greenfield bedrock of data for the organization to build Data Science and Machine Learning teams. Spearheading innovation in a field that doesn't innovate. This, I feel will be the closest you could get to that 'Start-Up/Scale-up' utopia, genuine innovation and disruption, where your ideas aren't going to fall on deaf ears and if you want to do something….You'll have to get up and do it.


-Designing innovative and groundbreaking data architectures and pipelines.
-Participating in best-practice technical decisions across numerous data and engineering teams.
-Supporting numerous areas of the business with best practice Data Engineering.


-Strong commercial experience designing and developing data pipelines in Python.
-Strong commercial experience with Google Cloud Platform (ideally) or Amazon Web Services (AWS)
-Strong commercial experience working with senior stakeholders and explaining best practices when it comes to data engineering.
-Ideally, experience mentoring junior staff members or leading a team.
