The Data Engineer will work directly with architects and product owners on the delivery of data pipelines and platforms for structured and unstructured data as part of a transformational data program. This data program will include an integrated data flow with end-to end control of data, internalization of numerous systems and processes, broad enablement of automation and near-time data access, efficient data review and query, and enablement of disruptive technologies for next-generation trial designs and insight derivation.
As a Data Engineer you will:
- Provide leadership to to develop and execute highly complex and large-scale data structures and pipelines to organize, collect and standardize data to generate insights and addresses reporting needs.
- Interpret and integrate advanced techniques to ingest structured and unstructured data across complex ecosystem
Delivery & Business Accountabilities
- Build and maintain technical solutions required for optimal ingestion, transformation, and loading of data from a wide variety of data sources and large, complex data sets with a focus on clinical and operational data
- Develop data profiling and data quality methodologies and embed them into the processes involved in transforming data across the systems.
- Manages and influences the data pipeline and analysis approaches, uses different technologies, big data preparations, programming and loading as well as initial exploration in the process of searching and finding data patterns.
- Oversees the development work of vendors in alignment with Takeda architecture standards and processes. Responsible for review of all data models, technical design specifications, and data pipeline strategies developed by outsourced vendors or created in-house.
- Uses data science input and requests, translates these from data exploration – large record (billions) and unstructured data sets – to mathematic algorithms and uses various tooling from programming languages to new tools (artificial and machine learning) to find data patterns, build and optimize models.
- Leads and implements ongoing tests in the search for solutions in data modelling, collects and prepares the training of data, tunes the data, optimizes algorithm implementations to test, scale, and deploy future models.
- Conducts and facilitates analytical assessment conceptualizing business needs and translates them into analytical opportunities.
- Leads the development of technical roadmaps and approaches for data analyses to find patterns, to design data models, to scale the model to a managed production environment within the current or a technical landscape to develop.
- Influences and manages data exploration from analysis to scalable models, works independently and decides quickly on transfers in complex data analysis and modelling.
