Transportation Data is at the heart of everything we do – lots and lots of data – and the quality and reliability of our core data platform is critical to our wider product offering… As the landscape evolves, so must we – from private beta’s with well known cloud providers through to production deployments powering some of the busiest messaging applications in transportation – we tend to work at the cutting edge of the big-data world. As our projects grow, so does our workload, so we’re looking for a data engineer to work under our lead developer as we expand the platform (and the company) into Europe.

• Create and manage systems to ensure data integrity, security and processes to deliver auditing and compliance
• Developing unit and integration tests to ensure our complex systems work as expected and match required behaviour
• Contributing to the clear documentation of new processes and improvements to existing documentation
• Creating automated alerts/alarms/dashboards for our critical operational systems

Vital skills

• Understanding of data processing at scale, data transformation, optimising data for transfer/storage
• Stream processing, ETL, big data
• Source control, continuous integration/deployment, testing
• Modern architectural design patterns
• Object-oriented and functional programming concepts
• Microservice oriented infrastructure and/or containerisation

Desirable Skills

• SQL / NoSQL database design (understanding of Graph Database concepts a bonus!)
• Familiarity with RESTful API design concepts
• Docker
