What is Data Engineering?
People who are hired as Data Engineers are responsible for designing, building and maintaining data pipelines. They make sure that the data is ready to be processed and analysed. They need to keep the data environment and flow optimized and efficient. What does a career within Data Engineering look like?
The day to day role of a data engineer will vary depending on the type of company they work for. It can be a very broad field so it can be useful to categorise them:
A generalist data engineer may have to do everything from ingesting the data to processing it to doing the final analysis. This requires more data science skill than most data engineers have. However, it also requires less systems architecture knowledge.
Pipeline-centric data engineers tend to be necessary in mid-sized companies that have complex data science needs and requires in-depth knowledge of distributed systems and computer science.
A database-centric data engineer is focused on setting up and populating analytics databases. This involves some work with pipelines, but more work with tuning databases for fast analysis and creating table schemas. It involves taking different data sources completing ETL work to then get the data into data warehouses. This type of data engineer is usually employed at larger companies with multiple and complex data sets.
You will need skillsets covering Python programming, data pipelines, and data processing.
