How you can help make a better world of work

We are looking for a Senior Data Engineer to join our Data Platform team. We sit within the Data Intelligence Camp, where we build reporting and analytics tools for our platform, leveraging data engineering, ML engineering and data science. We're working on a brand new set of features to help HR leaders utilise data from across the Culture Amp platform to maximise and measure the impact they have on their organisations. 

As part of this team of amazing humans, 

You will 

  • Be a technical escalation point across a wide range of technologies for less experienced team members and in cross-team collaboration
  • Design and implement core functionality of the Data Platform across our Redshift Warehouse and Data Lake
  • Ensure our data platform is robust, reliable, cost-effective, and protects the privacy and security of our users’ data
  • Identify opportunities to improve the experience of Analysts, Data Scientists, and ML engineers using the platform

You have 

  • Experience with cloud data warehouses such as Redshift
  • Proven experience in modern data management practices and tools, across ETL/ELT, data quality, governance and monitoring
  • Experience with CI/CD and infrastructure-as-code such as CDK or Terraform, ideally within AWS cloud 
  • Experience with data offerings in the AWS cloud, such as Redshift, Glue, EMR, Kafka and MWAA
  • Solid software development fundamentals, ideally with exposure to Python, Typescript and experience with SQL

You are

  • A driver of technical excellence in a team environment. You’re an expert in your domain and are able to develop the expertise and knowledge of those around you. 
  • Someone who loves collaboration - our teams are cross functional and you’ll be working with other engineers, team leads and product managers to deliver great outcomes together.
  • Keenly interested in understanding and solving customer problems. You think about how your work impacts our customers and improves their experience.
  • A pragmatic engineer. You ask and understand what we're optimising for before jumping into solutions, and can comfortably balance long-term objectives with short-term tradeoffs. 
  • Aligned with our values, check them out here: and demonstrate them through your working practice.
  • Self-motivated and able to work independently, comfortable dealing with ambiguity when necessary. You take the initiative to ensure that you have everything you need to work effectively and ask for support when required.
