The Role

The typical project runs for 1 to 2 years so they are sizeable projects within cloud environments, generally for companies within the following sectors that gather huge amounts of data:

  • Finance - Banking / Insurance
  • Retail
  • Energy / Utilities
  • Pharma / BioTech
  • Government Departments
  • Charitable organisations

The range of technologies involved can vary obviously between projects and clients so there is no set technology stack that we need experience of.

You will be working with a range of cloud technologies, a range of data platforms (Lake, Warehouse etc.) as well as a needing experience with a range of key data concepts (e.g.. Data Modelling). There is no specific technology requirement in any way.

The Companies

These companies put a huge focus on self-development and upskilling - we have companies who put 10% of their profits into a training fund for their staff and another who offer a day a week to work towards professional qualifications such as cloud certifications. This is alongside all the on the job training they can provide.

  • Design and deliver architectures which are fit for purpose, assessing the environment and constraints whilst showing a desire to challenge conventional thinking.
  • Create a compelling vision of an Agile, data-driven organisation.
  • Guiding and de-risking the delivery of data projects, promoting working iteratively to incrementally add value.
  • Mediating, resolving technical related conflicts and escalating when necessary.
  • Helping stakeholders define non-functional requirements and ensuring solutions meet these requirements for performance, scalability, availability, security and manageability.
  • Aligning work across the client's organisation and their data strategy, taking a key role in choosing appropriate technologies, preparing performance and cost estimates for various use cases.
  • Sharing expertise on data privacy and information security topics whilst keeping up to date with relevant legislation e.g. GDPR, ensuring our clients' regulatory compliance.
  • Building capability in the architecture community and collaborating with other data roles such as Data Engineers, Data Analysts and Data Scientists.
