Data Engineer – Own the function – Remote Working
Are you a Data Engineer that wants to use technology to better society? Help make Mental Health Support accessible to all? Own the Data Engineering function? All whilst having influence over tooling and ways of working?
Having been the first UK Digital Mental Health to IPO, raising £8m in the process, Kooth are now in a massive growth phase as we look to expand our product set and reach a larger audience! During 2020 our platform gave support to over 200,000 users and we are now focusing on scaling our products to reach 1,000,000.
To scale and improve our product correctly we are looking to base all decisions on user data, however, currently, our legacy ways of working make this a very slow and inefficient process. We are investing heavily in our data engineering function to modernise our tooling and ways of working and therefore we need a Senior Data Engineer to own the function.
The Data Engineer will be coming in to drive real-time data processing and analytics by building out a data mesh and data pipelines using Kafka, Clojure, and GCP. Working closely with our Insights and Analytics team you will be helping them get the most of our data so they can create valuable insights.
You will also be working closely with our Engineering team and Data Scientists to leverage the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to help take our product to the next level.
The Successful Data Engineer will have:
- Experience previously working on a Data heavy platform
- Prior experience building out or enhancing data pipelines using Kafka or similar
- Software development experience using: Clojure, Python or Similar.
- We use Clojure so you must be open to learning this
- Strong engineering standards – we follow TDD so you must be an advocate for this.
This is the perfect position for a Senior Data Engineer who wants to have more autonomy and the ability to influence strategy and tooling! We are looking for the Data Engineer to lead and guide us on our ways of working and best practices regarding data engineering.
Our company culture is focused on collaboration, learning, and transparency. Any Data Engineer coming in will find themselves in a very supportive environment with everyone looking to help and empower one another.
We are a Remote First business though we can support those who wish to be in an office.
