The world of Data is growing at an extremely rapid pace and the skills needed to work within this space are growing at a similar rate, but how would you like to be at the forefront of this incredible field within weeks, and then be deployed as one of our Data Engineering consultants to hone those skills even further?

What is Data Engineering?

Working within a data role requires transitional skill sets such as numerical and analytical skills, but it is now expanding into managing data in a variety of storage systems (e.g. databases, data warehouses, data lakes) using programming skills in languages like SQL and Python. As businesses store and handle more and more data, skills in Big Data technologies like Hadoop and Spark are increasingly relevant.

Strong communication skills are vital in transforming data to be used by different parts of the business effectively. This could mean ensuring that the data is transformed into the correct format for the data analysts or working closely with the data scientists to ensure that their data pipeline can support their algorithms. Don't worry, you're not expected to know how to do all of this already, that's where we come in.

We want to help you grow into someone that can deal with everything from visualisation tools to big data handling and everything in between. By training in one of our world class academies we will make you a specialist consultant who will then work with our clients to help them realise their business needs.
