Lead Data Engineer

Lead Data Engineer

Join Australia's most progressive technology-led Investment Bank and lead the transition into next generation data platform and analytics.

As an experienced Lead Data Engineer with excellent problem-solving and leadership abilities, you will bring your expertise in large scale data analytics, with a keen interest in Financial Services.

You will work alongside and lead a group of dynamic technologists that are responsible for developing and maintaining data warehouses and play an integral role in our long-term data strategy. These components are used by our business and integrate with downstream processes that need our data.

You will provide technical leadership to a team that runs the existing data warehouse solutions and leads an effort to migrate those systems to a modern data platform. Working closely with business users to understand and implement their data requirements, you will be working in a fast-paced agile environment. Our strong geographically-dispersed data management and analytics team will provide expertise in existing platforms and supported businesses.

Key to your success in this role will be your experience with new data technologies and willingness to mentor and cross-train staff. We anticipate that to excel in this role you will have strong leadership and communication capabilities as well as hands on development experience in:
  • Scala and/or Java or Python
  • data intensive development techniques will be invaluable. (e.g. streaming, complex event processing, map reduce etc.).
  • data processing technologies like Spark, Flink, Beam
  • data visualisation and data wrangling tools (Power BI, Alteryx etc.).
  • experience with cloud platforms (AWS, Openshift, GCP)
  • whilst an understanding of Financial Services industry domain, with exposure to Trading or front-to-back banking processes, is a nice to have, it is not a requirement of the role
  • experience with Microsoft Business Intelligence Stack (SSAS, SSIS, SSRS) is also beneficial.
