Your new role
You will be joining an agile team to help design and build the data platform and integrate with other systems. The platform harvests data from numerous data streams, identifying researchers and artifacts in disparate systems, and linking them together into coherent entities. The consolidated data we produce enables our knowledge graph and recommendation systems to derive higher-level insights and deliver value to the research community. Working in close collaboration with our data scientists, product team, architecture and the other software engineers on building streaming data solutions, you will develop Big Data applications that exploit a unique and large collection of scientific data. You will contribute to defining the project tech stack and standards in the team & department. You will be building well-formed APIs and services to allow members of the wider business ecosystem to easily integrate with our applications, taking advantage of techniques such as pair programming and continuous delivery.

What you'll need to succeed
The successful candidate will have strong development experience on the JVM using Scala/Java. You will be familiar with Big Data technologies such as Spark or Hardoop. You will have working knowledge of Kafka and be familiar with AWS and/or Cloudera. You will have agile experience such as Scrum, Kanban and XP and will have worked with agile practices such as TDD, pair programming and continuous integration.

What you'll get in return
As an equal opportunity employer, we are dedicated to your success. You will be joining a collaborative, innovative and fun environment where everyone has an important part to play. We promote a healthy work-life balance across the organisation with numerous wellbeing initiatives in place. We offer a generous pension and holiday allowance along with 10 additional days a year to up-skill and learn new technologies, we will even fund any additional training you take on.
