Senior Data Engineer

Up to £70k + bonus

We are working with a well-established and rapidly expanding company that has just secured a new round of investment to expand its team and product range. They are looking for an experienced Data Engineer to join their team in London, United Kingdom.

The company have created a big data software that allows clients to connect multiple sources of internal and 3rd party data to get a full 360° view of the customer. It allows the clients to make better decisions based on actionable data. It is being put to use in finance to detect financial crime, government to detect fraud and marketing to get a full view of the customer (to name a few).

As a Senior Data Engineer, you will need to be a hands-on coder ideally with Scala, but other functional programming languages will also be considered (as long as you are willing to learn Scala). Spark is used for data processing so experience with this is also needed. As a Senior Data Engineer, you should be comfortable dealing with internal and external stakeholders, being able to hold high-level conversations and being adept at explaining to a non-technical audience.

Ideally, you will have experience with implementation and systems integration as well as building data processing pipelines (traditional ETL but also analytical pipeline would be beneficial). Above all, you must be able to solve problems and be a solution finder. Our client uses a GCP to host its platform, but clients have a whole host of different systems, both on-prem and distributed. You should be familiar with both.

Technical essentials:

  • Solid functional programming, ideally Scala
  • Spark
  • Distributed computing experience (Cloud/Hadoop)

That’s it. Everything else is nice to have. At the end of the day, a good engineer is a good engineer, and you can pick up the rest of the tooling along the way.


  • Be data-focused
  • Built data pipelines
  • Good stakeholder management skills
  • Good analytical and problem-solving ability


  • Competitive Salary
  • Company Bonus
  • Private Healthcare, Life Insurance and Income protection
  • Pension Scheme with a company contribution of 6% (if you contribute 3%)
  • 25 days annual leave (with the option to buy/sell up to 5 days)
  • Amazing working environment
