They're disrupting a specific area of the e-commerce world by making the purchasing process simple, easy, and clean. By putting the customer first and owning their product outright throughout the transaction process to ensure quality, the company is setting out to do things differently to anyone else in the industry.

They have put together an incredibly strong leadership team (CEO, COO, CTO, CDO have all joined the business from market-leading organisations), and their Head of Data Engineering is no different. Having worked on building batch and stream data pipelines for a number of extremely data-rich organisation, they are now looking for a Senior Data Engineer & a Data Engineer to join them building this data solution out from scratch.

As a Data Engineer, you will work on the development of data pipelines and the data lake itself. Your stakeholders will be everyone from Analysts & Scientists through to more purely commercial teams.

Good software engineering practice;
CI/CD with Jenkins, etc.
Version control (github or gitlab)
TTD approach to work.

Discretionary bonus
Pension match
