What You'll Do

Our teams are growing rapidly and we’re hiring a DataOps Engineer to take our products to the next level of scale. Use your experience in data engineering to help define Data as a Product, and bring your expertise to improve not just the product itself but the client experience, leveraging data, from ETL to the presentation layer. You will work closely with your Tech Lead and the other engineers in your team to define the appropriate technical approach, metrics, and timelines. You will have your say in the product roadmap and help the team and the Product Manager to make the most informed decisions to break down complex tech deliverables into simple and understandable user stories. You will drive collaboration, gather feedback, solve problems, and tackle challenges through tests and learning.

Quality is key for us, so you will ensure all product components are built to an appropriate level of quality for the stage (alpha/beta/production), deliver products using the appropriate level of testing and monitoring, fail fast, and learn and iterate frequently. You will champion continuous improvement and always aim to improve the product your team owns and measure your impact with the appropriate tech, product, or delivery metrics.

In this role, you will 

  • Work across the full stack depending on where you can drive the highest impact:  from ETL pipelines to data warehousing to visualisations, as well as testing and cloud infrastructure
  • Work with your team to design and implement features and services for the data analytics solution, and keep the design choices well-documented and explained
  • Commit to high-speed iterations and continuous improvement via agile processes
  • Champion the DataOps culture, treat operations with a mission-critical mindset, and support data systems in production, including participation in our out-of-hours on-call rota
  • Use your experience in data management and governance to define and implement standards across our systems ensuring security, consistency and quality across all of our data
  • Use your experience to create/improve predictive data quality
  • Communicate with customers to discuss new use cases or help them identify and fix data issues, as well as manage the end-to-end setup for them: from raw data analysis, to defining and implementing data ingestion/enrichment pipelines to creating data visualisations

What we’re looking for

  • We wholeheartedly believe a good engineer can pick up any new technology in a reasonable amount of time and you’ll be given training and help during your onboarding to become fully proficient with our stack. 
  • What we expect you to already have is goodwill, as well as a deep understanding of data systems development life-cycle, DataOps methodologies, testing, and tooling.
  • We’ll ask you about your previous experiences building large and complex high-throughput data systems, and we’ll hear the stories you’ll be willing to share about microservices, event-driven architectures, databases, or any tech challenge you’ve enjoyed.
  • We’ll want to know how you went about improving the quality, security, scalability, and observability of the products you worked on, and how you would try to repeat that success at SuperAwesome.
  • DevOps practices are an integral part of our culture, and we’ll want to hear what aspect of them you prefer, what worked well for you out of the box, or how you adapted them to your needs.
