- Work with leadership to set the standards for software engineering best practices
- Produce high-quality code that allows us to put solutions into production
- Review team members' code or debate approaches to complex technical challenges
- Continuously evaluate our process for optimisations and help us to shape the next generation of our products
What you’ll learn
With our focus on solving problems using data, you will learn to deeply understand the Data Science and Data Engineering process and help develop impactful and reusable patterns and abstractions used by our clients and teams. You will experience the thrill of building a growing product and evolving the engineering process to handle more users, harder problems and more advanced client situations. You’ll be able to continuously exercise your unique problem-solving skills by being involved with the most exciting new challenges that industry has to offer.
