The Client

Bright Purple are delighted to be working directly with the Senior Leadership at one of the world’s leading data and software companies – a global powerhouse with expertise across numerous industries worldwide. For us to have this sort of direct relationship is the result of years of hard work, delivering top tier talent for them and building high-performance teams. It goes without saying we know them inside-out. This enables us to add huge value to your application and offer unparalleled insight into their culture and environment.


The Journey

They are on a journey, and they need brilliant Data Engineers to join them on it. You’d be adding value from day one, helping transform their entire data infrastructure and revolutionising how they store, access and share data by leveraging some of the most powerful and advanced cloud and data tools available.

From tracking ship movements via sensory and satellite data, to providing unique insight into renewables discovery and energy risk, your work would empower their clients to make better decisions for themselves, and for us all. Their data platforms are at the forefront of enterprise level decision making.

They are aggressively adopting the very best of cloud – harnessing a range of serverless AWS services like Athena for ETL jobs, S3 for scalable cloud storage, and Redshift for data warehousing. They use these tools in conjunction with Python, DevOps, and brilliant visualisation technologies like PowerBI.


What Is on Offer

The chance to play a significant hands-on senior role in all of this. Working in a hybrid remote/in-office capacity, you will be collaborating daily with some of the brightest and most respected engineers in the industry. You’ll be pushed to be better than you’ve ever been before and deliver work at scale which shadows previous achievements.

Career pathways are limitless here, and long-term the vision is for you to be involved in some of the more advanced Machine Learning and Image Processing work they have planned.

Initially working under a Principal Engineer, as you prove yourself you will have the chance to lead on design and architecture, run projects, and make key decisions regarding technology adoption.

Their pension is brilliant, they have real flexibility, and most of all the team is full of great, humble yet amazing people.
