You’ll be responsible for building the required infrastructure for the optimal extraction, transformation and loading of data from a variety of sources. You’ll be an expert in the strengths and limitations of different data structures, and successfully assemble large and often complex data assets that will meet the business requirements. You’ll work with stakeholders to assist with their data-related technical issues, so it’s essential that you have a strong background in supporting and working with cross functional teams.

You’ll have proven experience in this field, educated to degree level, with a keen interest in optimising data systems and managing these through to implementation.
