Yoco was launched in 2015 and is already supporting more than 30,000 SMEs! As Yoco keeps growing, so will its data. We are wanting a Lead Data Engineer to join our team who is comfortable building data infrastructure that scales exponentially year-on-year in terms of both volume and variety as more complex products are introduced into the ecosystem.
You will be working closely with software engineers and data scientists to enable the delivery of actionable insights in real time. This will include building internal products/tools, utilising open-source software to schedule data jobs, facilitate data flows and enable integration between the core Yoco system, the Yoco Data Warehouse and other cloud-based systems.
If you are passionate about building a world class, scalable data pipeline and warehouse then this is the role for you! Your work will be used to power the Yoco platform: by leveraging the rich data available, the Yoco Data Team is able to add real value to our customers and drive new product development, both internally and externally.
WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING:
The requirement of being equally comfortable with managing databases and building out systems requires a dynamic individual capable of acquiring new skills at a rapid rate. You will be challenged constantly and required to find creative solutions to complex problems whilst leaning on recent developments in the SaaS space to cut out the majority of manual and repetitive work. Learning from international best practices, e.g. AirBnB, will provide a path to success - you should be familiar with the trends in the industry and their impact to any Data team.
