Data Engineer

We’re looking for a product focussed Data Engineer to join our team.

At PassFort, we share a powerful vision to enable businesses & individuals to establish trust online. We currently do this by giving businesses the tools they need to automate and digitalise the onboarding, verification and management of their customers - that means customers can be onboarded in real-time, without ever having met in person.

And this is just the beginning - our technology allows us to define what ‘trust’ means across the digital economy. Our long term aim is to create a single network where people and businesses can share their digital identity securely and interchangeably - whether they’re applying for a mortgage, listing on the stock market, or applying for a new job. We're transforming how trust is established online, in the same way that Salesforce transformed sales, Stripe transformed payments and AWS transformed DevOps.

What you’ll be doing

As our first Data Engineer, you’ll have ownership of building a greenfield infrastructure to optimise our data pipeline, and enable data analysis to drive development of new features and identify growth opportunities for the company.

Working closely with our Data Lead and the wider product team (currently 12 ppl), you will

  • Define how we extract, store, transform, and clean data
  • Improve data structure & quality
  • Develop a data warehouse
  • Build our data pipeline for accessibility and scale
  • Support on data analysis
  • Work with our data scientist to develop high level concepts and integrate this back into the core engineering team roadmap
  • Develop entire features, including technical design, implementation and release

It’s a fantastic opportunity (a startup within a startup!) that spans a variety of responsibilities across Engineering, Data DevOps and Data Science, allowing you to grow in a direction of your choice as the team grows.

What we’re looking for

  • A self-starter, able to work autonomously
  • 3yrs+ commercial experience building ETL frameworks (warehousing and pipelines)
  • Able to produce production ready code (we’re not bothered on the language)
  • Some hands on data science or data analytics experience, within a data driven team/company/product
  • Able to communicate with non technical stakeholders, internally and externally
  • Any experience with data security or anonymising data sets is desirable

The Perks

  • Equity! We want you to succeed as we do
  • Great location - we’re central to three stations, and sandwiched between Brick Lane and Spitalfields market
  • An annual learning & development budget to spend on professional or personal development, we’re invested in both
  • Birthday off - relax and put your feet up
  • Dental cover
  • Access to Perkbox - discounts to services and products (and honestly it’s fantastic)
  • Equally Enhanced Maternity/Paternity/Shared Leave pay
  • Generous holiday entitlement
  • Pension contributions - investing in your future is important
  • Pick your own equipment and kit
  • Biscuits… we’re a bit obsessed. We have a weekly ‘guest’ biscuit to broaden your biscuit horizons.
