Transportation Data is at the heart of everything we do – lots and lots of data – and the quality and reliability of our core data platform is critical to our wider product offering… As the landscape evolves, so must we – from private beta’s with well known cloud providers through to production deployments powering some of the busiest messaging applications in transportation – we tend to work at the cutting edge of the big-data world. As our projects grow, so does our workload, so we’re looking for a data engineer to work under our lead developer as we expand the platform (and the company) into Europe.

Core responsibilities
• Work closely with the tech director and senior developers to help build and deploy our transportation data processing platform
• Develop systems and tools to ingest data into our wider communications platform using cloud technology on a day to day basis
• Work with clients, data suppliers and Open Data platforms to develop and maintain libraries to ingest real-time data at massive scale
• Create and manage systems to ensure data integrity, security and processes to deliver auditing and compliance
• Developing unit and integration tests to ensure our complex systems work as expected and match required behaviour
• Contributing to the clear documentation of new processes and improvements to existing documentation
• Creating automated alerts/alarms/dashboards for our critical operational systems

Vital skills
• Understanding of data processing at scale, data transformation, optimising data for transfer/storage
• Stream processing, ETL, big data
• Source control, continuous integration/deployment, testing
• Modern architectural design patterns
• Object-oriented and functional programming concepts
• Microservice oriented infrastructure and/or containerisation

Desirable Skills
• Scala/Java and Linux
• Commercial experience with Amazon Web Services (Lambda, API Gateway, Kinesis, DynamoDB, S3, EC2, ECS etc)
• SQL / NoSQL database design (understanding of Graph Database concepts a bonus!)
• Familiarity with RESTful API design concepts
• Docker

For you, the devil is in the detail! Resilience, scalability and quality all go without saying in everything you do! You’ve probably been working as part of a team on an enterprise-level platform for a while, and fancy a challenge with greater responsibility and plenty of room to grow.
