Big Data Engineer

Are you an experienced Big Data Engineer with a track record in building scalable solutions? Have you used continuous integration tools to build data processing pipelines in a commercial environment? Would you like to help teach a multinational business about Big Data?

This global eCommerce business is at the beginning of their Big Data journey and is now looking for a Senior Big Data Engineer to drive a new Hadoop platform build up and scale out. They are specifically looking for someone who can advise them on, as well as implement solutions for the collection, storage and batch and near real-time processing of huge datasets.

As their new Senior Big Data Engineer you will work closely with the Head of Engineering to prepare and optimise their Big Data infrastructure according to best practice, ensuring no problems and monitoring performance of the integrated solutions you put in place. You’ll be responsible for developing, testing and maintaining data ingestion and integration pipelines, transforming business requirements into data models.

You’ll need to demonstrate previous experience of setting up Hadoop clusters (ideally Hortonworks) as well as stream processing with either Kafka or Spark Streaming. Prior experience with Flume, Hive or Pig would be beneficial. You’ll also need experience with object-oriented programming languages.

This is a unique opportunity to help shape the Big Data infrastructure of one of the fastest growing companies in the world. The company will support visas for the right person. Sound like it could be fun?
