About the role

This is an exciting opportunity to join us as a Data Engineer and come and work as an integral member of our growing IT development team, leading continuous development and continuous integration of our new, metadata-driven, data platform created in Pentaho.

What you will need to succeed

You will have substantial experience with business intelligence applications, especially data integration and dashboards. You will be practiced at balancing and prioritising a diverse workload across multiple projects at every stage in the development lifecycle.
