Our client has been entertaining audiences for more than 90 years through the world’s most-loved characters and franchises. Our client employs people all over the world in a wide variety of disciplines and we're always on the lookout for energetic, creative people to join our team.

Our client is expanding its Big Data engineer team and is looking for the right person to help define the technology direction as well as lead Big Data engineers to help turn billions of rows of data into concrete, actionable results. 

Everyone on the team is hands on, and this role is no exception. If you are looking to only design and give direction, this role is not for you. We love the cloud (AWS) and open source tools (especially Spark and Hadoop), so we do need you to have significant experience with both.

  • Responsible for vendor and technology evaluations, constantly looking for the right tools to support key initiatives
  • Coordinate with the head of the Big Data DevOps team to streamline deployment processes and launch CI/CD
  • Work with the Security and PMO to help the team follow the best practices

What do we need from you?
  • Smarts! A Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field
  • At least 5 years of Big Data analytics experience, including deploying solutions with Spark on Hadoop clusters as well as building advanced data pipelines
  • In depth experience with AWS, specifically the data and analytics tools
  • Experience working with consumer data
  • Knowledge and experience on how to build secure solutions
  • Huge passion for Big Data and a desire to teach and develop team members
  • Scripting in either one of these languages – Python, Bash, Shell, etc.
  • Awesome communication skills – This role will interact with stakeholders across WBT as well as the internal team

Bonus points for?
  • UNIX and Hadoop Administration experience (helps when working with the admins)
  • Elastic Search experience for search and discovery across large data sets
  • Experience with marketing, campaign and media data
  • Experience with entertainment data
