Where in the world of OVO will I be working?
You will be joining our Data teams in our London office.
That sounds great! What will I be doing?
As a Data Engineer you will be working with all internal product, platform and data teams to create and maintain ETL pipelines.
You will collaborate with the Data Platform team in order to create best practices for working with data and jointly come up with requirements for the Data Platform. You will also keep track of both the ownership of implemented business logic, as well as the actual ownership of the source data.
You will report into the Software Engineering Manager of the Data Platform team and will work closely with our Product, Tech and Analytics teams along with a wide array of stakeholders across the organisation.
You will most likely have worked in businesses where data and analytics are at the core of their culture and business. You will place a high value on documentation and will use insights from data and related fields to constantly improve our products.
