Job Description

The role is looking for an ambitious Staff Data Engineer to join our Data Platform Team. Our team’s mission is to build a world-class data platform that powers our products and analytics.

The Data Platform team is here to ensure internal stakeholders can easily collect, store, process and utilise data to build reports or products aiming to solve business problems. Our focus is on maximising the amount of time business stakeholders spend on solving business problems and minimising time spent on technical details around implementation, deployment, and monitoring of their solutions.

We're building for scale. As such, much of what we design and implement today will be the technology/infrastructure which will serve hundreds of teams and petabyte-level volumes of data.

Hybrid Working Model: All of our offices globally are onsite 3 times per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday). We’ve worked towards enabling teams to work collaboratively in the same space, while also being able to partner with colleagues globally. During your days at the office, we offer amazing snacks, breakfast, and lunch options in all of our locations.

How You’ll Make An Impact

  • Work with stream processing technologies (Kafka, kSQL & Flink) to build a continuously available large-scale event streaming platform
  • Leverage subject matter and technical expertise to provide leadership, mentoring, and strategic influence across the organisation whilst building strong relationships with engineers and managers
  • Build light weight tooling and associated reference patterns to foster the adoption of the streaming platform by enabling upstream teams and systems to easily publish data and deploy streaming applications using industry best practices
  • Implement all the necessary infrastructure to enable end users to build, host, monitor and deploy their own streaming applications
  • Provide consultancy across the technology organisation to drive the adoption of the platform and unlock event-driven use-cases
  • Participate, translate, run and execute the collection of requirements and architecture/design initiatives into action plans
  • Provide hands-on support for all event-based systems including incident triage and root cause analysis


What we’re looking for

  • Strong presentation and communication skills with a proven track record of influencing engineering organisations
  • Strong engineering background with a track record of implementing and owning event streaming platforms
  • Experience working with stream technologies, primarily Kafka, but also Kinesis
  • Experience designing and implementing stream processing applications (kStreams, kSQL, Flink, Spark Streaming)
  • Experience working with modern cloud-based stacks such as AWS (MSK, S3, Lambda, ECS, SNS) techniques and tools
  • Excellent programming skills with at least one of Python, Java, Scala and C#
  • You’re a collaborator, always ready to dive in and partner to solve tough problems.
  • You’re a listener, and seek to understand the underlying problems, before pitching solutions
  • You are outspoken and able to drive through best practices by taking teams and organisations as a whole with you.
  • You are a thought leader, so we’d love to see articles, podcasts, meetups or conference talks if you’ve done them
