    Head of Data Engineering


    £80,000 - £100,000 + package

    Python, AWS, Airflow, Postgres


    MBNs client, one of Londons most innovative Media Analytics organisations, are currently looking to bring in a new Head of Data Engineering to drive their platforms forward and improve the quality of data solutions across the function.


    Youll be leading a team who manage and analyse data from 28 different clients and track media spending from various social media giants including Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram. From this data the team will be advising which areas to focus on and how budgets should be allocated for future campaigns which involves some Data Science work as well. An understanding or passion for Data Science & Analytics would be welcomed as there are opportunities to implement these skills daily with your team.


    Your team currently consists of 8 Data Engineers & Analysts, and you will have the opportunity to mentor and set out development paths for them to keep the team improving over the course of the year. From a technical perspective, they work in an Airflow & Postgres environment hosted on AWS, but this is a business that pilots and develops bespoke products for their partners so if you want to bring something in or improve a certain area, youll have the autonomy to do this.


    Tech and skills:

    • Strong experience with cloud platforms, preferably AWS but GCP and Azure also considered
    • Solid Python skills for Data Engineering/Science
    • Familiarity with Airflow & Postgres environments
    • Bring a positive aura to the function, energising and motivating those around you (be a role model)
    • Experience of planning and delivering large scale data projects, understanding budgets and timescales
    • An understanding of budget planning, marketing, or econometrics would be highly beneficial for collaborations throughout the data function
