Job description

The Job
Big Data Engineer is needed to help Initi8 Recruitment's client to build a robust new Data platform. Your role as a Big Data engineer will be to collaborate with a technical team of 8 in their journey to create a singular data and analytic platform which will service a well-established start-up to help understand their customers much better.

Your role will be to make sure the companies technical architecture can be easily scaled to processes large sets of data from different revenues such as social media and their online platform to provide actionable insight. You will be part of a friendly team who are discovering and experimenting with the latest technologies (Hadoop, AWS, Spark,Scala) and will be critical to the success or failure to this fast-growing business. A very Greenfield opportunity currently at POC stage, where the future could lead to either leadership, architect or a specialist within Big Data.

The ideal Candidate
You would have had some number of years of experience in a software engineering or developer role and have made the transition to Big Data in the past year or so (still keep reading if you are keen to make the transition). You will have completed end to end projects and have a very good understanding of the SDLC. You will be someone who can cut code with the best of them in Java 8 or Scala, but you will be a bit more than that now as you would have had some experience with the Hadoop Ecosystem and can processes data with Spark. You will be a technical astute, a genuine technologist and someone who loves a challenge.

The client
A dynamic, can-do organisation that believe that everything is possible, they set ambitious growth targets and have hit every single one of them. They have just over 100 IT staff within their head office in Berlin from over 30 different nations. They are very sociable and friendly, have a company football team and don't have set rigorous working hours. They will reward you, promote you keep you interested and give you a job that will develop you personally and professionally. They will provide you with any training that you will need (internally and externally) plus all the resources you need to make your job a success. They are a very tech focused company who find themselves presenting their tooling and systems at meet-ups and conferences!

The salary and benefits
The salary range you can see on this role is quite broad, owing to the fact the person we are looking for could be interested in more than just money, 26 days holiday (+2 days after 2 years), pension, insurances, free fruit, drinks, 25% discount on products, relocation, aid in finding accommodation, in house academy, flexible working hours and Visa sponsorship

Application Process
Once we have made your application and your profile has been selected you will have a Skype Video interview with either the Head of Data & Analytics or Team lead. If this goes well you will be given a short challenge to complete a project building a recommendation platform. When you pass this, you will have a final Technical Skype interview with the Tech Lead and Senior Data engineer and potentially other members of the team. Whilst this is an involved process, we can do this all very quickly.
