The Opportunity
Lead Data Engineer urgently required for a major global entertainment company. This is a great opportunity to join an entertainment company with over 100 million customers globally. They are investing heavily in BI and data science to transform the customer experience. Customers provide constant feedback and data which can improve the overall experience, yet many companies ignore it. This company recognises the benefit of dispersed knowledge and is using it to spearhead a consumer revolution.

Why join?
You will work with enterprise-scale data gathered from across the globe. You will work in a fast moving and rapidly changing environment. You'll work in a BI department of more than 100 people, with hundreds more across the group, allowing you to develop your career as far as you wish, across multiple business lines. The datasets you are working with are growing exponentially and you will assist one of the largest migrations in history.

Responsibilities
You will direct the data science platform and collaborate with colleagues across BI. You will collaborate with Data Scientists to implement analytical models including segmentation and predictive models. You will coach Data Scientists to use data processing tools efficiently.

Skills
Minimum of 5 years working as a Data Engineer.
You must have experience of mentoring other Data Engineers.
Strong experience of SQL.
An ability to work in UNIX or Linux including shell scripting.
Some experience of developing in python.
Experience of distributed computing tools or statistical analysis tools would be an advantage, though this is not essential.

As well as working at the cutting edge of data engineering and receiving a competitive base salary, you will also receive world class training, the opportunity to learn foreign languages, a 10-15% bonus, a double matched pension, private health and dental care and enormous discounts on their products.
Initial phone interviews will take place 20th February - 3rd March 2017. Please send your CV ASAP if you wish to be considered for this fantastic role and company.
