Job Details:

Principal Data Engineer – London (Remote working) – £115,000

You’re perfect for this if greenfield projects sound like an exciting prospect.

But not just because it’s new. You have an equal passion for imparting your wisdom onto others and actually making a project your own; you know what good looks like, you want to be able to speak up and question the norm. Equally you’re there to take on ideas and roll with the crazy pace of an ever-evolving and rapidly growing Fintech. This role is for a lead, someone who knows data in fact they LOVE data! You’ll be Principal level, so very hands on but good at leading from the front.

Your team isn’t junior, but they have got most of their experience under one roof. They are ready for a disrupter to come in, show them solutions from different perspectives, and help inspire them to deliver some unbelievable work.

Now what are you building?

You’ll be contributing to a fully serverless bank, who have massively gone against the norm in their tenure. They’ve raised over £150m so far to help fuel their growth to 350 heads. They have several products from credit cards to mortgage lending products that have a few billion in their portfolio already. Whilst Fintech does mean regulated it certainly doesn’t mean slow. Operating like a start up they move fast, they innovate and they offer you an environment to reflect on every month and year looking back at all the incredible things you’ve managed to achieve.

Tech stack

You’re more than capable of leading on architectural discussions to help contribute to overall systems architecture and you do it with a product mindset. Their main language is Python and as they are serverless you should come armed with Lamba experience. That said it’s set to change, grow and get better! What’s the best tools for the job? What should we be using to get the best product built? These are questions you can help answer. So think:

  • Expert Data Engineer experience
  • Excellent Python programming experience
  • Data Platform Architectures
  • AWS (Lambda, SQS, SNS etc)
  • Lead/Mentor others
  • Product Mindset and constantly looking to improve and innovate processes
  • Experience working in regulated industries (Fintech)


  • Hybrid working (remote first with occasional visits to London)
  • Monthly socials
  • 6% pension
  • 25 days holiday + buy and sell options
  • life assurance, private medical (AXA)
  • Salary up to 115k
