Director of Data Engineering Central London up to £150,000 + bonus & benefits
MBN's client, a multinational investment management corporation, are making brilliant developments within their Data & AI function. They have shifted focus towards a DataOps culture, so are looking for a Director to join their team to bridge the gap between the Software and the Data Platform to optimise their analytical capabilities.
We're looking for an individual that is passionate about Data and Software, with strong experience of multi-team strategy. The function is at the start of developing their new Analytical platform that optimises data storage with the view to making data visualisation across thousands of portfolios much easier. Of course, this role requires an expert understanding of many principles such as CI/CD, Containers, object-oriented languages, Cloud, relational databases, and data modelling techniques.
As much as this is a Director role, you're still expected to be technically adept and have a strong understanding of your team's skills on a base level. You will be the leader of the overall efforts to use excellent Software as a driver for high-end data analytics, and a successful DataOps approach. Automation is key and improving efficiency of the Software Development Lifecycle will be an overarching goal. Tech and skills:
- Strong experience with cloud platforms, preferably Azure but AWS and GCP also considered
- Experience of managing at strategy level within a Software environment
- Solid understanding of what your team are doing on a day-to-day basis from a hands-on perspective
- Bring a positive aura to the function, energising and motivating those around you (be a role model)
- Previous experience of working as a Software or Data Engineer, and current hands-on understanding
- Golang, Java, Python are the primary development languages
- Kubernetes, Docker, Azure, Kafka, CI/CD, NoSQL also desirable
