Data Engineer

The opportunity:

I'm partnered with an innovative startup transforming the way commercial and clinical data is analysed to identify sustainable financial benefits in the NHS. Using their platform and tools, including product price transparency and comparison, this company gives 100% visibility of non-pay spend ultimately making teams better-informed financially.

As they expand into more NHS trusts, a Data Engineer is needed to design and build a new data platform. This role is integral in managing the migration from the existing and moving them to the new cloud-based architecture.

Your task:

In this role you will design and build a new data platform whilst using best in class tools and services you identify, validate, prove-out and implement. You will be responsible for creating and developing new pipelines taking data from a variety of different sources and transforming them into data that will power a new SaaS platform being developed. You will also provide the software development team datasets that will be integrated into their applications and services in a scalable way.

This is a varied, technical role for someone who wants the opportunity to build solutions from scratch, enjoys solving challenges, and is invested in helping the NHS. In the future, it is expected for there to be opportunities for leadership/management if this is your preferred long term career plan.

About you:

For this role, you will have led the design and development and coded large parts of similar systems using recognized standards and protocols. Confidence in Python to process data and automate processes, and further confidence in interacting with databases, web APIs and processing data is needed. Knowledge of both AWS or GCP cloud platforms and SQL is required. In addition, an understanding of CI/CD principles should be shown.

As you will be responsible for designing and building a large part of the core data strategy, its important that you are confident with evaluating different approaches and making well informed decisions about the direction we should take.
