We are looking for people who want to tackle Data Modelling and Transformation challenges using a modern technology stack. 
Our main goal is to develop a Data Lake platform for a new, highly funded, UK-based, speciality insurance company. We work across two teams: one responsible for ingesting  and curating hundreds of datasets from various providers; the second one creating Data Marts used by analysts, business users and Data Science teams. There are lots of greenfield areas and possibilities to impact the whole company. 
Tech Stack:
AWS, Snowflake, dbt, SQL, Terraform, Prefect
  • Delivering high quality code for data processing and transformation using Snowflake and dbt
  • Automating and optimising day-to-day work while making sure the process remains reliable
  • Working closely with Data Architects and Business Analysts to create Data Marts using Kimball Dimensional Modelling
  • Connecting to multiple data sources and sinks to support complex business processes
The Data Engineering team consists of around 20 engineers of which about a half are Snowflake and the other half are Scala/Spark engineers. Many of them are from well known consultancies. Apart from that teams consist of Data Architects, Business Analysts, Product Owner and a Delivery Lead. 
What we expect in general:
  • Strong SQL skills
  • Dimensional modelling (Kimball)
  • Strong engineering skills
  • Demonstrated ability of design, build and implementation of software solutions in Snowflake with an unwavering focus on quality
  • Ability to work in an agile environment, partnering with team members and peers to find solutions to challenging problems with transparency
  • Experience of working using CI / CD and DevSecOps approach
We do not expect you to qualify for all of the above points. A good understanding of some of these areas and a willingness to develop expertise in others may be sufficient.
