£95,000 + Car + Bonus + Pension (16%)

A Principal Data Engineer with experience in streaming data technologies (Kafka, Apache Beam / Spark & Kinesis) and scaling/deploying software and services globally is urgently required to join one of Manchester's most recognised brands in the heart of the City Centre. In the role you will be a lead figure within the data engineering squads and use your effective leadership capabilities across multi-discipline squads to drive quality within a collaborative, agile driven environment.

After signing off a new exciting programme of Greenfield work which involves the build of core Connected/Data platforms & pipeline-as-a-service product and engineering these towards a greener economy there is so much scope for innovation and creativity within this roles and sector! This is a key hire within part of a new recruitment wave, which has seen 40 new roles arise, where the successful Principal Software Engineer will lead a number of squads totalling 10-12 engineers (though having 5-6 direct reports).

As Principal Software Engineer (Data) you will be responsible for the ownership and definition of engineering standards across your squads, architecture, system integration design and technical leadership. Reporting directly into the Global Head of Engineering you will consistently deliver to challenge the business objectives, have a real focus towards continuous improvement and standards along with ensuring systems are secure, scalable and reliable.

You'll have a deep background in Java technologies, with experience delivering enterprise scale cloud-native applications and have prior commercial experience with streaming data technologies (Kafka, Kinesis Data, Apache Beam / Spark). Additional skills and experience across Microservices, RESTful API's and message queues would be expected.
