Data Engineer - to be based in Scotland.
(6 month FTC)
At Blis, Data Engineers are a combination of software and data engineers. They actively write production code, typically in Python, and have deep practical experience with data ingestion/scrapping, cleansing, and validation, classification and partitioning. As data engineers, they seek to ensure the robustness and correctness of all data processing, its inputs & outputs in line with specifications. We expect our engineers to be proficient at building automated pipelines that can scale and provide appropriate control signals for efficiency ops. Their understanding of the business also helps us to innovate, by discovering new opportunities or better ways of operating, where the traditional approaches are limited. Across the team, everyone supports each other through mentoring, brainstorming, and pairing up. They have a passion for delivering products that delight and astound our customers and that have a long-lasting impact on the business. They do this while also optimising themselves and the team for long-lasting agility, which is often synonymous with practising Good Engineering. They are almost always adherents of Lean Development and work well in environments with significant amounts of freedom and ambitious goals.
We are looking for a data engineer to work for us to cover a maternity leave position. You will be responsible for problems such as identifying and predicting how people move in the real world, determining efficient goal-based bidding strategies, filtering out unreliable or fraudulent data from streaming location signals, and classifying likely shoppers, amongst many other opportunities. This is a growing team with big responsibilities and exciting challenges ahead of it.
At Blis we work on hard problems with massive data sets. We receive over 350gb of data an hour and respond to 400,000 decision requests each second, with petabytes of analytical data to work with. We tackle challenges across almost every major discipline of data science, including classification, clustering, optimisation, and data mining.
