WHAT’S YOUR NEW ROLE ABOUT?

As Data Architect with Perform Group you will be responsible for the development and delivery of the data warehouse and supporting infrastructure. You will mentor and lead the data engineering team, and help the analytics team use the data collected to build and improve user-facing product features.

You will be responsible for choosing optimal solutions to extend the supported data sets and evolve the data warehousing solution; then implementing, monitoring and maintaining within the architecture used across the company.

You will have knowledge of data engineering and analysis to develop a clear understanding of the business needs and to incorporate these needs into technical solutions. It is essential that you have a solid understanding of physical database design principles, and the system development life cycle.

 

HERE’S YOUR ROLE BROKEN DOWN (NOT ALL OF IT, JUST THE MOST IMPORTANT STUFF)

  • Recommend and deliver ways to improve data efficiency, reliability and performance of ETL
  • Oversee the generation of new data products for the BI and Product teams.
  • Improve the performance of our Redshift data warehouse.
  • Design a new S3 Data Lake using serverless ETL processes
  • Monitor and enhance the performance of the whole pipeline – monitoring using Elasticsearch / Kibana.
  • Migrate the ETL process from static EC2 instances to a continuous delivery model – using the technologies you deem best for the job.
  • Research new technologies (e.g. real-time streaming analytics, personalisation, social networks) to complement our traditional data warehouse setup.

 

DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS?

  • Ability to communicate complex technical solutions in a non-technical manner
  • Strong knowledge of API technologies
  • Experience using AWS EMR or equivalent Data Lake solutions
  • Experience with AWS Glue or Apache Hive
  • Proficient in designing efficient and robust ETL workflows with Spark and other Frameworks
  • Experience with relational databases (PostgreSQL, Redshift) and key-value stores (e.g. Redis)
  • Experience with Lambda and Kappa Architecture modelling
  • Experience modelling unstructured data sources in JSON, AVRO, Parquet formats
  • Professional experience with Python (5+ years) or Spark (Scala/Python) (5+ year)
  • Experience working with a workflow management tool (e.g. Luigi, Oozie, Airflow, Azkaban…)
  • Experience of database design and best practices
  • Experience building a Multidimensional Data Model
  • Experience understanding how data is ingested from different sources and combined / transformed into a single data set
  • Experience of writing solution design documentation

 

IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU HAD THESE DESIRABLES TOO

  •  Experience with working with data on video streaming, user behaviour in web, mobile and set-top-box applications, user retention and churn, online subscriptions
  • Experience with Machine Learning for content personalisation
