Data Warehouse Manager

London

Apply Now

The role:

Based in London and working in the Data Engineering team, you’ll be helping us build out our data warehouse and analytics platform. We have users sending money from 50 countries to over 150 countries – and we’re expanding. The work is varied, from creating new products and features to improving existing functionality, we strive to build a better customer experience and a better codebase. This is real growth at a pace.

We use a modern cloud-based stack – AWS S3 and Redshift primarily with Python used as the ETL language. We also make use of Airflow and Docker for scheduling and deployment. 

Your responsibilities:

  • Writing great code. We understand code is read more than it’s written, better off tested and maintainability is a must.
  • Helping shape what we build. You’ll be working closely with product owners, designers and other engineers to design and refine our work. We work as a team and your input is key.
  • Owning delivery. We’re obsessed with shipping value; you’ll own work beyond just a pull request. You’ll care about bugs, scalability, uptime and other non-functional requirements.
  • Growing together. You’ll review other’s work and happily seek feedback on yours to ensure we build a better codebase and sharpen each other's skills.

 

What we are looking for:

  • A skilled Data Warehouse Architect: 5+ years of dimensional modelling and delivering Kimball star schemas
  • Redshift Guru: You’ve worked extensively with AWS Redshift and know not only how to implement a warehouse on it, but how to monitor and tune it as well. You have worked with the AWS toolset, including S3, Cloud Formation, AWS Batch and VPC
  • An ETL Expert: You will be completely comfortable designing ETL pipelines and implementing them using a combination of Python, SQL, Docker and Airflow.
  • Solid SQL experience. You can write complex SQL for both reporting and ETL purposes
  • Big-data experience. You have some knowledge of big data related tools and techniques (data lakes, distributed processing platforms, streaming technologies).
  • Well-principled. Especially in the craft of Software Engineering – you will understand deeply: modularity, testability, extensibility, scalability and other –ilities.

Who we are:

We’re changing the way people send money abroad. We’re taking something complicated and making it simple. Our people and our technology work together to create faster, easier and lower cost money transfers. We send to more than 145 countries around the world and have over 3 million happy customers – a number that’s growing every day. After all, 120,000 5★ reviews can’t be wrong!

We believe in helping our customers’ hard work go further. We’ve helped millions of children to go to school, helped thousands of people to receive medical treatment and, every week, we help tens of thousands of people to pay their bills. But most importantly, we do it all with the creativity, imagination and colourful spirit of our customers.

The work we’re doing is making a splash in the fintech industry too. Accel Partners and Technology Crossover Ventures have invested $140 million in us – and as early backers of the likes of Facebook, Spotify and Netflix, we know we’re in good company! Not only that, but we’re also a member of TechCity UK’s prestigious FutureFifty.

Changing the world isn’t easy, but we’re hoping to find the right people to join us on our way. If you think differently, believe in new solutions to old problems and have the drive to make things happen, you might just be what we’re looking for.
