Our client is a financial institution that has been around for nearly 200 years. However, they’re not your typical stuck in the mud finance company. They are on a mission to innovate and become more data-driven in everything they do. This includes doing away with the overly process-driven and red tape environment and rather they are big on encouraging new ideas and a new way of working.

They are looking for a Lead Data Engineer to build and maintain their data engineering platforms as they re-architect their existing on-premises solution to a cloud-native Azure deployment.

There will not be any direct line management, but more coaching & mentoring other Data Engineers.
