As a Data Engineer & DBA you will:

  • Create and maintain all data feeds that the Data Platform requires and that data sets are optimised, structured, partitioned, indexed and performant 
  • Perform ad hoc data requests for the business where quick turnaround time is required for insight and critical decision making. This could be using a variety of technologies and working across Azure, Salesforce and Google platforms
  • Indexing, partitioning, scheduling loads and optimising all databases that are part of Data Platform as a key priority
  • Working with the BI Developer to ensure that all data feeds are optimised and available at the required times. This can include Change Capture, Change Data Control and other “delta loading” approaches
  • Assisting the wider Audley team with data optimisation, indexing and partitioning tasks. Review other developer’s SQL queries and interfaces to highlight performance issues and adherence to industry best practice

  • Knowledge of SSRS, SSAS, Power BI, Power Query and DAX
  • Working knowledge of REST APIs
  • Experiencing using Cloud technologies and tooling for Azure and Google (GCP is less of a focus but confident to participate in data migration and connectivity to this platform) 
  • Strong coding skills and the ability to write and debug ad hoc queries using various tools. Python and an understanding of Machine Learning is also a nice to have but an opportunity for future development
  • Embodies the Audley values of being positive, being the difference, being one team and being passionate about travel
