A rapidly growing FS business are looking for the final Data Engineer to join the team in building their Big Data Platform from PoC through to production, using Spark, Scala, AWS, Cloudera and Kafka. The platform will initially be used by Data Scientists for advanced analytics projects, with a view to make the solution accessible enterprise wide.

They highly value empowering their employees with decision making and autonomy, and you will have the chance to make your mark on the platform.

As Data Engineer you will:

  • Build and develop a Big Data technology stack from the POC stage through to production using Spark and Scala, in an AWS environment.
  • Build data pipelines in Kafka to allow for data streaming
  • impact existing architecture, incorporating new features into the platform.
  • Work in a highly Agile manner with regular Sprints, Continuous Integration, etc.


  • Strong programming skills with Scala or Java
  • Experience using Big Data technology such as Hadoop and Spark in production environments.
  • Knowledge of Linux processing system.


  • A brilliant opportunity to take a POC through to production, and gain exposure to the challenging environment this brings about.
  • The chance to be innovative and creative with a new technology stack, and have hands-on responsibility into the development of this platform.
  • Salary up to £85,000, plus an excellent bonus and benefit package worth around 30% of the basic salary
