An exciting new opportunity has arisen for a Data Engineer to join one of the UK's largest retail chains. As a Data Engineer you will be working alongside inquisitive data scientists to build a data lake for transnational data. As a Data Engineer the central part of your role will be to platform the data in Spark and in order to allow the data to become accessible to the business. You will also be working alongside data scientists to prepare data for algorithms including assisting in tuning and integration.
A key part of your role as a Data Engineer will also be to have an inquisitive approach to data and the business's critical issues in order to understand the commercial needs of the project.
