In joining the Data Engineering team you could have a very bright future at the cutting edge of data-led innovation. With skills spanning across programming/data analysis/modelling and a mix of modern and traditional data platforms (e.g. Hadoop, Kafka, GCP, Azure, Teradata, SQL server) you'll get to work on a vast range of high-profile projects providing you with horizon-expanding exposure to a host of wider technologies and careers in data.

So what is the focus of the role?

You'll be working in a cross-functional team, collaborating closely with the business, product owners, data scientists and machine learning engineers to solve some of the Bank's toughest business problems.

Your key accountabilities will include;

  • Providing the much-needed 'data expertise' to help shape the approach to solving the problem and contributing new/interesting datasets into the mix.

  • Working in our new Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Hadoop or Spark environments; using state of the art toolsets, as well as evaluating exciting new technologies to expand our capabilities

  • Responsible for the end to end delivery of initiatives and improving the value delivered by the team.

You'll need to show a real passion for developing new solutions and translating data into analytics based opportunities - role-modelling Data Engineering as it should be in the new digital age. Someone who can quickly absorb complex technical and analytical concepts and be able to translate these to a wider business audience is essential for this opportunity.

Could you bring the skills and value we need?

We'd be looking for you to have experience in some of the following areas:

  • Good coding/scripting experience (e.g. Python, SQL etc) developed in a commercial/industry setting

  • Computer science fundamentals: a clear understanding of data structures, algorithms, software design, design patterns and core programming concepts

  • Exposure to Hadoop technologies (e.g. HDFS, Hive, HBase) or prior experience working with high volume, low latency data storage and analytics platforms

  • The agile delivery mind set of a product owner, coupled with a well-practiced technical and architectural understanding of data

We would love to see any additional skills with the points below, but please apply if you have the core skills but not these ones!

  • Experience delivering analytical use cases in a cloud based environment

  • Exposure to some GCP cloud tooling (e.g. Cloud DataFlow, BigQuery)

What will you get in return?

You'd also get a benefits package that includes;

  • A performance related bonus

  • Generous pension contribution

  • 30 Days leave plus bank holidays

  • A flexible cash pot (4% of base salary) to spend on benefits

  • Private health cover

  • Wider corporate benefits and perks

As a new colleague, you'll join us on our journey to build a 21st century bank that reflects modern Britain, and craft an inclusive culture where all colleagues feel encouraged and valued.

We're committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the customers and communities we serve, and to building an inclusive environment where all our colleagues can be themselves and succeed on merit. We support the principles of agile working and are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We're an equal opportunity employer and deeply value diversity within our organisation.

So if your expertise lies across some of these data engineering disciplines and joining a growing team appeals then get in touch, we'd love to hear from you...

Together we make it possible.
