Data Engineer

From Chaos to Clarity

A Data Engineer is a professional responsible for designing, building and managing the data architecture, infrastructure and tools necessary for data collection and storage. They employ tools like Python, SQL, ETL tools and cloud tools to deliver high quality data pipelines.

Common Responsibilities:

  • Data Engineering
    Data Engineering: Building and maintaining the core framework of the data platform, these professionals focus on scalability, security and performance optimisation. They also collaborate with data scientists and analysts to ensure the architecture supports the required data workflows.
  • Data Ingestion
    Data Ingestion: They build and maintain the systems that pull data from disparate sources into the data lake or database, enabling real-time or batch processing. Monitoring the pipeline for errors and ensuring high data quality are also critical aspects of this role.
  • Data Storage
    Data Storage: Responsible for the long-term storage solutions for structured and unstructured data, they decide on cloud-based or on-premises systems based on performance, cost and accessibility needs. They manage data retention policies, ensuring compliance with legal and business requirements.
  • Data Transformatin
    Data Transformation: They clean, normalise and enrich raw data into a usable format, often employing techniques such as ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) to make it ready for analysis. This often involves creating data dictionaries and using metadata to assist in data lineage and tracking.
  • Integration
    Data Integration: By combining data from various sources, they offer an integrated view that enables more comprehensive analytics and reporting. Effective data integration also involves resolving data conflicts and ensuring consistency across different data sets.

Data Engineers also engage in data security, optimisation, collaboration and monitoring and maintenance.
