Job Description

Data Engineer

Term: Full-time, Permanent

Location: High Wycombe with hybrid remote working available

Salary: £50000 - £65000 pa depending on experience + excellent benefits

Focusrite are looking for an experienced data engineer to join our business intelligence team. You’ll help us build and maintain a robust yet flexible data stack, delivering high quality information where it’s needed (and keeping it secure where it’s not!).

We make extensive use of SQL, dbt, Snowflake and Power BI, as well as various other tools. We work closely together using pair programming, peer review and DevOps practices. We relish the chance to learn new things, independently and from each other.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Is an SQL expert, able to quickly identify data issues with a pithy query.
  • Has opinions about permissions, schemas, APIs and models, and can share them collaboratively.
  • Knows how to structure, profile and monitor a data warehouse, and what to watch out for.
  • Is familiar with visualising data and delivery tools such as Power BI.
  • Has an interest in analysis and modelling as well as infrastructure.

You don’t mind doing the mundane stuff, because you set everything up to make the mundane stuff, well, mundane (and therefore easy and low risk). That leaves time build new data marts for our stakeholders, identify data pipelines to be improved and be a stickler for adhering to privacy regulations.

Do you:

  • Have a knack for extracting requirements from big picture stakeholders?
  • Know who Inmon and Kimball are?
  • Have a background in economics, statistics or computing?
  • Enjoy helping people get the most from data?
  • Go on occasional nerdy tangents?

If so, and if you’ve built a data stack that your colleagues trusted and depended on, we’d love to hear from you!
