London, UK | Posted: 7 months ago

This job is expired and may no longer be accepting applications.

WHAT IS THIS OPPORTUNITY ALL ABOUT?


As Intermediate Data Engineer you will be primarily focused with converting, manipulating and sanitising large data from a range of data sources (MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL etc). You will be heavily involved in automation efforts with an end goal of having a completely automated process. You will be constantly working on optimising low level PHP code and database queries to reduce the resource consumption required to convert large data sets.


You need to be someone experienced who has the vision and answers for other developers to look up to and be challenged and excited about what is possible. This role and mission will be no mean feat so you will need plenty of gas in the tank and a great toolbox of ideas and tricks to get the outcomes the platform will need in the future to be successful.

WHAT YOUR TYPICAL DAY WOULD LOOK LIKE?

Arrive at our newly renovated office, grab yourself a coffee with a few fellow team members, and sling a bit of banter around.


Review a few comments from the New Zealand based conversion team and run a few small scripts for them.

Attend the daily stand up to discuss current challenges, wins and goals you are going to achieve for the day.


Continue coding the latest script you will be utilising to convert data from competitors software into ezyVet.


Mid way through the day, give your mechanical keyboard and gaming mouse a chance to cool down and enjoy some well deserved lunch with a side of mildly witty banter.


Be a savior by providing rapid support to your appointed globally operating on-site implementation buddy when they are in need of a data superstar.


Continue working through automating the tooling by utilising cutting edge technology (i.e. Lambda, machine learning, AI etc).


Sit back and admire your latest performance improvement as GBs of data flow through your AWS spot instance.

Once you're done for the day; throw down (careful now) a challenge to your global team on slack and watch as the threads brim with excitement as they pick up what you've thrown down. 

DESIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE (THE BORING BITS):
