Abcam is looking for a Data Engineer who will design, construct and maintain the data architectures used by the Consumer Insight and Analytics team. The role encompasses the streamlining of existing data pipelines as well as the creation of new ones. The data in question is both structured and unstructured and relates to both customer interactions and product development.

That said, in the future this will likely change and the ability to guide the company along this journey would be a decided bonus. Roles & responsibilities: Automating the provision of clean, structured and consistent data to tools produced by data scientists and data analysts. • Automating the extraction of data from a variety of tools and platforms. • Recommending ways to improve data reliability and quality. About you: You will be degree qualified in a rigorous quantitative field (e.g. computer science, mathematics, physics etc), a computer science degree would be advantageous, but not essential. You will be a highly collaborative self-starter with expertise in SQL and experience in writing production code and creating data pipelines. You will have familiarity with Python and the commonly-used data science libraries (i.e. pandas and scikit-learn). In addition, you will be familiar with Linux and shell scripting with the ability to establish and maintain a relational database. You will have excellent prioritisation and project management skills with the ability to adapt and learn quickly in a changing environment. Familiarity with at least some part of the Hadoop ecosystem and with Oracle products would be beneficial.If this sounds like you and you’d like to be a part of a fast paced, growing business with the vision to become the most influential company and best-loved brand in life sciences please apply now!
