A place to grow

Python Data Engineer

We are looking for highly-skilled Python back-end developers / data engineers.

The Job

We're looking for talented data engineers to join our brilliant team of engaging, experienced developers. You'll be working on client engagements and our own startup-style internal projects, so expect variety and the chance to work on a range of data-heavy projects.


Who should apply?

  • You’ll need 6+ years of experience working with Python and an interest in data engineering

  • Communication skills are vital: you'll need to be comfortable - and enjoy - working with clients and understanding complex requirements

  • As a remote-first business, excellent writing skills are essential: we're in Slack all-day

  • We’re strong believers in TDD (with Pytest) and you should be too

  • Experience working with AWS is a bonus, and being comfortable on the command line is a must

  • Must enjoy the challenge of getting stuck into architecture

  • You’ll enjoy working independently but can contribute to the small, agile teams in which we operate as needed

  • You’ll be fluent in English, and preferably based in the UK or have experience working in the UK

What will your day-to-day look like?


If you're working on a client project, you'll be part of a small team, responding to client requests and implementing them.

If you're running a new project for our data business, you'll be building data systems from scratch, working closely with our Founder and assisting with API and data pipeline development where required.


Some examples of recent projects include:

Building data transformations using dbt (http://getdbt.com)

Creating an API using the Serverless framework (https://www.serverless.com) and deploying to AWS

Setting up the infrastructure to track changes in a database and deliver via web sockets in real-time

Writing data pipelines to parse GIS data into PostGIS (https://postgis.net/)
