job description

For a large financial company based in AKL CBD, we are looking for a Senior Data Engineer to join one of their Data Engineering teams. This person will lead from the front mentoring and coaching junior and intermediate Data Engineers. They are doing some exciting things in the Data Engineering space and now accelerating their practice in this space.

You will work closely with stakeholders in the business, other data teams and will lead technical initiatives using exciting and newly implemented technologies. The team you will join is responsible for the end-to-end delivery and production support in Data warehousing & Data analytics.

So who are we looking for?

It goes without saying, but someone who is passionate about data engineering and its possibilities, someone who loves making a splash and feels Data will make a difference, someone who is eager to share their knowledge with team members and other stakeholders in the business.

We looking for two types of skills set; Data Warehousing experience and Data Engineering experience. If you already have made this transition to Data Engineering in the last few years, perfect! However, this role would also suit someone who would like to make this transition rather sooner than later.

DW skills:

  • Using SQL through the Data Vault principle
  • Java, Python, Powershell, C#, or similar
  • Git, Jenkins, Bitbucket, or similar
  • Reporting experience using SSIS, PowerBI or Tableau
  • Acquiring data from multiple sources
  • Agile working methodology
  • Experience with mentoring junior and intermediate data talent

Beneficial are Data Engineering skills such as:

  • Cloud technologies, AZURE or AWS
  • Streaming data technology, Kafka, Spark, Hive, Impala, NoSQL or similar

Now, if you can top this up with experience gained in the financial sector, wow!

Overall you will be doing data modeling, designing, implementing, testing, correcting and documenting large and/or complex programs and data models based on agreed specifications using platform standards and tools. Next to this you will be a front runner in regards to the team and use your knowledge and skills to impress and influence your stakeholders and team members.

If the above sounds like you then we would definitely like to hear from you. Hit the apply button and we'll receive a notification about your application and get in touch asap.

At Randstad, we are passionate about providing equal employment opportunities and embracing diversity to the benefit of all. We actively encourage applications from any background.
