JOB DESCRIPTION

Founded in 2016 with only a handful of individuals, Quantexa was built with a purpose that through a greater understanding of context, better decisions can be made. 5 years and 300+ employees later we still believe that today. We connect the dots within our Customers data using dynamic entity resolution and advanced network analytics to create context, empowering businesses to see the bigger picture and drive real value from their data.

  • Present project results to clients both face to face and virtually
  • Work very closely with data scientists to ensure efficient and effective delivery of solutions
  • Use leading open source big-data tools, such as Spark, Hadoop, Scala and Elasticsearch. You should be comfortable with working with high profile clients, on their sites.
  • Work with our expert software development team to produce reusable applications:

  • Excellent technical skills including expert knowledge of at least one big data technology such as Spark, Hadoop, or Elasticsearch.
  • Experience of building data processing pipelines for use in production “hands off” batch systems, including either (or preferably both) traditional ETL pipelines and/or analytics pipelines.
  • Strong coding experience in the likes of Scala, Java or Python,
  • Strong client facing, communication and presentation skills,

  • Enthusiasm to learn and develop emerging technologies and techniques.
  • Exhibit strong technical communication skills with demonstrable experience of working in rapidly changing client environments.

Ideal candidates will also:

  • Have worked on a variety of complex data orientated projects for financial services clients
  • Have a good understanding of Computer Science and preferable come from a software engineering background or other scientific degree incorporating IT modules (e.g. Maths/Physics)
  • Have exposure to Agile, especially SCRUM.
  • Be open to short-medium term international travel
  • Arrive with experience at working with a variety of modern development tooling (e.g. Git, Gradle, Jenkins, Nexus) as well as technologies supporting automation and DevOps (e.g. Ansible, Chef, Puppet, Docker and a little bit of good old Bash scripting).
