Senior Software Engineer - Data Services - London

Description

uSwitch's purpose is to simplify complex marketplaces that can genuinely improve people’s lives. Saving a few hundred pounds a year on bills makes a fundamental difference to vulnerable people who sometimes have to choose between paying for utilities or groceries.

Millions of our customers are signed up for our accounts and marketing lists, maintaining a rich correspondence as they use our services over the months and years.

Our new Data Services team exists to responsibly surface and understand the patterns and data manifested from these customers. To open the opportunities within this data to our product teams, we need a Data Engineer.

Are you someone who enjoys challenges and could fill this essential role?

The Opportunity

  • You will fundamentally influence the data pipeline for, and analysis of, customer data used across the organisation.
  • With access to rich datasets, across several teams & products, you will gain hands-on experience with ETL and cloud technologies (such as Spark, AWS Athena, and AWS Glue).
  • Our community of analysts and data-focused people will push you and your skillset further.

The Responsibilities

  • Leading the process of crafting valuable views and transformations, you will use our near raw customer data and support our analysts to do the same.
  • You will work closely with teams to ensure they get access to the right data to answer their questions and power their applications.
  • You will become the authority on our customer data - the foundation that supports our lightning-fast analysis and data-driven culture.

Requirements

  • You can convey complex messages to people from a variety of backgrounds. You are skilled at concise and selective communication.
  • Highly skilled in SQL. Experienced with Python or Scala for data processing. Experience with distributed data processing platforms (e.g. Apache Spark, AWS Glue, Apache Beam, Apache Hadoop) preferred.
  • Technically hands-on: you are comfortable learning new technologies and languages, habitually working ‘under the hood’ with code, methods, and techniques.
