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 Technical Lead-Data Engineer to join their team in London, United Kingdom.
The company has 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 Technical Lead (5yrs+ exp), you will be responsible for 50% of coding and 50% of leading the team direction on projects. 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 TL, you should be comfortable dealing with internal and external stakeholders, be able to hold high-level conversations and be adept at explaining to a non-technical audience. You should have at the very least mentored others but ideally, lead a small team previously.

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.
