You will be responsible for delivering high-quality data pipeline solutions using, at the core, your software engineering capabilities around programming languages such as Java or Python, whilst also working with the Hortonworks stack on Big Data projects.

You will be:

  • Leading the development of large-scale data pipelines solutions.
  • Hands-on developing using processing technologies such as Hadoop and Spark, and languages such as Python.
