37.5 hours per week
Provide data solutions (e.g. data acquisition, automated data feed(s), data integration, data modelling), to the SSE Airtricity business, which deliver tangible business value. Key accountabilities include:
Liaise with key business stakeholders to gather and document key functional and non-functional requirements of identified data feeds e.g. external data via API for Digital reporting. This is to ensure that any data collected, and any data assets built meet the business need/solve the business problem
-Core solution design, development and implementation
Based on the data requirements, design, develop, test and deploy the required data solution(s) e.g. data acquisition, automated data feed(s), data integration, data modelling. This will require both technical knowledge, adherence to a structured design approach and working with various stakeholders (e.g. working with application support providers to deploy solutions to production)
-Critical asset management
Develop a deep understanding of our core data solution(s) (e.g. Datawarehouse, ETL process(es)) so that any new developments are designed with the knowledge of how they will impact (and potentially integrate with) existing assets. Although technical support for day to day running of, for example Datawarehouse processes is in place from IT, the Data Engineer will be accountable for identifying and consulting on improvements of data mechanisms, data capture, processing, ETL, data modelling and use in analytics etc.
Develop own knowledge and awareness of developments/leading technologies in the area of Data Engineering (e.g. Big Data infrastructure, NoSQL databases, non-standard data processing, etc.) and bring this learning to SSE Airtricity to provide key input on the Data Engineering Strategy and Roadmap for Data and Analytics. This could include items such as the processing and management of data in SMART metering
Own and lead the data management and data compliance strategy within the Data and Analytics team. This includes developing, implementing and owning processes such as intermittent data protection “spot checks” on the databases/systems under the team’s remit. It also includes considering data protection throughout the end to end development cycle e.g. completion of Data Protection Impact Assessments if required.
