About the role
The Data team at WorldRemit is responsible for delivering the infrastructure and services to support the fast-paced demands for reliable, high-quality data. Our customers rely on us to ensure timely delivery of data, enforce the highest data quality standards, and provide fast, easy access to data. This requires a next-level data platform, and we are looking for a Data Ops Engineer to operate and support that platform. You will work closely with data engineering teams to bring agility, automation and governance to operational processes. Our mission is to build a world-class platform from first principles which will be leveraged both internally and externally. This new platform will enable WorldRemit and its partners to enter new markets while supporting the organisation’s goal of making remittance easy and secure for a global customer base.
Technologies and the environment…
We are using industry-leading technologies in an AWS environment, such as: database services (Redshift, Aurora, RDS, DynamoDB), data analytics services (Athena, Glue DataBrew), real-time data movement (Glue), compute services (EKS, ECS, EC2), and storage (S3). We use standard data transformation and orchestration technologies, such as dbt and Airflow. Python is the primary language used for data processing. Standalone applications and/or services may be required to provide supporting functionality, which may include additional frameworks, languages such as Java.
We put a strong emphasis on automation, unit/integration testing and performance testing. In Technology we work closely with our product and architecture partners to design scalable solutions that serve our customers.
