Data Engineer

Data Engineer

A data engineer collects and prepares data for use by data scientists and analysts. This involves integrating and cleansing data structures, ensuring it is optimised and easily accessible for a company’s organisation.

As natural problem solvers, they work with both structured and unstructured data.

Often, this role involves working in collaboration with data science teams to improve data transparency, allowing businesses to make data-driven decisions.

Key Skills

Data engineers are highly skilled in technical programming such as Java, Python, R and Ruby. As a highly analytical role, an understanding of data warehouses and data lakes is key.

This role combines both the elements of software engineering and data science. Machine learning is also a primary focus of data engineering and is a transferrable skill into many other opportunities in this field.

To become a data engineer, the most important skill is communication. This role relies heavily on collaboration between teams, ensuring you can communicate complex data to those without expertise.
