The Opportunity

You will be part of the newly formed Data & Analytics team which combines the three core Data disciplines, Engineering, Analytics and Data Science. As a Data Engineer you'll actively take part in expanding our current stack and building new ETL processes. You will get to experience the opportunities and challenges of working with data streams that originate from different sources, the standardisation process and the automation triggers that are required to keep the data clean.

Collaborating with the wider Product team, you will help us define new processes and expose our data through APIs allowing the rest of the business to consume it and discover actionable insights.

At Trouva we have to constantly evolve and iterate over our data architecture and processes to match the fast growing needs of the business, and as part of that you will have the chance to work with different technologies and tools and to actively help shape the vision for Data Engineering.
