Data Engineer – Python

£50,000 – £75,000

We have a client based in South London that is looking to take on a team of Data Engineers to help enable the business to gain insight into its data through advanced analytics & machine learning.

The company is 12 months into a digital transformation where it has moved its entire services over to cloud (AWS). It is now looking for several data engineers to help maximize the benefits of the cloud.


As a data engineer, you will be involved in the development, implementation and integration of API and data pipelines into digital product’s as well as storing historic data in a partitioned parquet format within an S3 bucket. From here the data science team will use this data to draw insight into the business through ML algorithms. You will be responsible for the development and deployment of these algorithms also.

You will have the chance to work on multiple digital projects that range from customer journey to data segmentation, telematics to weather prediction and IOS app development to eCommerce platform build. In other words, there’s a lot going on. You will work in a lean scrum team alongside data scientists, testers, product owners and software engineers. Working in an Agile environment previously is highly beneficial.

From a technical perspective, we need you to write production-quality code in Python. This is an absolute must, none negotiable. Experience with AWS (especially S3) would be a serious advantage but if you have moved data into an alternative using parquet formatting then that would also be of interest. There are multiple roles available (hence the salary bracket) so I’d be happy to talk to anyone who has even 1 or 2 years of Python. Potential goes a long way with these guys.


Tech Summary

  • Python
  • AWS S3
  • API Development

You will be working alongside Data Scientists to experience helping develop products within a similar team is also advantageous.

If you would like to know more about this opportunity, please get in touch and I can run you through the details. I have been working with this client for 3 years now so there is a lot I can cover.
