  • Productionize data pipelines: Identify opportunities to improve the efficiency of the ETL pipeline by building robust automated solutions for data capture, standardisation & loading and human-in-the-loop data processing
  • Drive innovation: Draw on your programming knowledge to scale and standardise pipelining across our team and the department, always identifying opportunities to improve efficacy, quality or interoperability
  • Achieve your purpose: Optimise processes, lead projects, and improve the quality of the products sought by internal and external end-users
