Data Engineers of the North West - this one is for you, or senior devs with big data experience, you'll be great too!


I'm working with a company in Cheshire who've just won a goliath stream of project work from a name brand that you've definitely heard of. They're essentially going to farm a ton of data, make actual real sense of it, and send it back in digestible chunks for their customers to use.

So, for that I am looking to hire a number of data engineers who can build a data platform first of all, and then maintain it, whilst adding shiny new features to make it all jazzy and slick.


You'll be developing, designing and using the complicated data processing engine that you make on a daily basis. So, its got to be scalable, robust, performance lead and secure. You'll end up working with BA's, product owners, DevOps teams, testers, external data sources, a load of people all collaborating to bring the whole platform together.


So, core requirements are:

Big Data tools:- Kafka, Spark, Hadoop, NoSQL et al

Have worked on/designed a similar system before

Have created Spark processing jobs

Used Python, Scala or Java before

Have tuned data before, have configured the process

And done it all in an Agile environment.


This contract will be 6 month to start (nice) and more than likely extend over the course of the next year. There is a pending 2nd office open, so from October you'd have the choice to either work in Cheshire or Manchester City Centre.


If this does sound like the challenge you'd be keen to take on, with new large scale data, then please do get in touch.


Definitely commutable from Chester, Warrington, Crewe, Northwich, Middlewich, Stoke, Liverpool, North Wales, Wrexham, Widnes
