Lead Data Engineer

Lead Data Engineer

Why is our Data Engineering team the next step for you?

Worldpay puts data at the heart of our business. We are excited to be creating and building a new Enterprise Data Platform which provides powerful analytic capabilities for Worldpay and our customers. This is a key role within our data engineering team working on our new data platform.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?

We will expect you to load data from multiple operational systems into our huge data lake. Due to the large amount of data we use Hive QL as well as Hadoop’s inbuilt data loading tools for much of the processing. 

While working within this dynamic team you will be responsible for building and data loading using the Hortonworks toolset. This will also include creating data migration scripts to take all data stores in the cluster from one release to the next.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

Extensive knowledge of standard SQL (SQL-92) gained using large scale database systems such as Netezza, DB2, Sybase or Oracle is essential to this role. You’ll have experience of data loading, either scripting or using ETL technologies. Existing hands on experience with Big Data technologies like Apache Hadoop, MapReduce, HDFS, Hive, Pig, Sqoop , NoSQL databases, Hbase and related standards technologies is advantageous.

As a Lead Data Engineering expert you will have extensive experience in developing efficient code in SQL, Linux shell, Java or Python.

How is Worldpay changing the world?

We are leaders in modern money. Each and every time you use your debit card or credit card to pay for something, whether online or face-to-face, there’s a good chance it happened because of us. On an annual basis our innovations, systems and technology enable billions of money transactions globally. Working with customers large and small, we help them to take your payments quickly, safely and reliably, allowing them to grow their businesses and making your life more convenient in the process. As a leader in global fintech and the largest London IPO since 2011, this is a great time to join us in building for the next phase of the Worldpay journey.

This is a great opportunity to gain skills in the Hortonworks Data Platform and related tools in an innovative and passionate environment.
