Senior Data Engineer

Location: London

Salary: Competitive

Expiry: 8th Dec 2017

Why is our Data Engineering team the next step for you?

Worldpay puts data at the heart of our business. We are excited to be creating and building a new Enterprise Data Platform which provides powerful analytic capabilities for Worldpay and our customers. This is a key role within our data engineering team working on our new data platform.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?

We will expect you to load data from multiple operational systems into our huge data lake. Due to the large amount of data we use Hive QL as well as Hadoop’s inbuilt data loading tools for much of the processing.

While working within this dynamic team you will be responsible for building and data loading using the Hortonworks toolset. This will also include creating data migration scripts to take all data stores in the cluster from one release to the next.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

Extensive knowledge of standard SQL (SQL-92) gained using large scale database systems such as Netezza, DB2, Sybase or Oracle is essential to this role. You’ll have experience of data loading, either scripting or using ETL technologies. Existing hands on experience with Big Data technologies like Kafka and/or Spark is essential. Any experience in Hive or Pig will be advantageous.

As a Senior Data Engineer, you will have extensive experience in developing efficient code in SQL, Linux shell, Java or Python.
