About the role

The Data Integration Engineer will help to support the rollout of The Society’s new data integration strategy, and work on the development, implementation and support of all core data integration work. Working within the new ETL framework, planned for development this year, the Data Integration Engineer is responsible for the development of robust and efficient data pipelines and integrations developed, tested and implemented in a timely manner. This role is key to our organisation’s data capability and the advancement of the Society’s overarching Data Strategy.

Working alongside the Senior Data Integration Engineer and collaborating closely with other Data Department colleagues, business teams and external suppliers, this role is key to the successful implementation of The Society’s data integration capabilities.

Working on a project to migrate our legacy ETL feeds to the Microsoft Azure Data Factory platform; this role will ensure our core systems such as CRMs, finance, HR, and data warehouse, as well as other peripheral systems and external suppliers, are kept in sync with resilient and timely data pipelines. 

About you
You will have experience of working within an ETL framework that encompasses movement of data between internal and external systems, standardised error handling and reporting, provision for data stewardship, scheduling, and change controls.

You will be experienced in using leading ETL tools (such as SSIS) to integrate a variety of source and target systems using various formats including Salesforce, SQL Server, APIs, JSON, csv.  As well as advanced SQL skills, you will also have skills in languages compatible with Data Factory such as .NET and/or python.

You will have experience of performing technical changes in a complex environment.  You know how to balance speed of delivery against stability and supportability of solutions.  You can work within and adhere to rigorous change control processes, apply robust testing procedures as well as plan for live rollouts and backouts. Working knowledge of change control tools such as GIT or Azure Dev Ops will be highly advantageous to the role as will experience of agile working practices.

We are proud to support them with a range of benefits, recognition and many options for working agilely, all contributing to a strong work life balance.
