Job Description


The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) is looking for a Data Engineer. It is an exciting opportunity to join our Data Science & Insights team on a full-time basis.

As a Data Engineer you will be responsible for developing and maintaining the RSC data warehouse. The role is highly technical and hands-on and involves running projects to ensure that data is consolidated, standardised and accessible in a manner that is useful to the business. You will play a key role in data management, consolidation and analytics delivery across the RSC, ensuring a better use of data as an asset and a joined-up, shared view of customers, products and services.

You will be involved in building and maintaining a secure, cloud data infrastructure to support the RSC’s needs.

We are looking for someone who has an experience in setting up a data warehouse and who enjoys communicating with the stakeholders.

We are looking for someone with:

• Substantial data warehousing experience. Including familiarity with data related AWS technologies (e.g. Redshift and documentDB), pipelining (e.g. AWS Lambda and AWS Glue) and associated core technologies (e.g. SNS/SQS).
• Strong programming skills and substantial experience designing and building data pipelines (e.g. Python).
• Experience in data standardisation and QA techniques.
• Familiarity with developing data interrogation and visualisation tools such as a single customer view (e.g. consolidating data from multiple CRMs) and analytics (e.g. PowerBI)
• Able to confidently work within a team and independently and clearly communicate technical concepts to both a technical and a non-technical audience.
