Senior Data Engineer

I joined ThoughtWorks as a Senior Data Engineer just over a year ago. Prior to ThoughtWorks I worked largely in the financial services industry both as a software engineer and then later a data engineer.

One of the best parts of my role is how varied the data problems we encounter are. Solutions are not a one size fits all and I enjoy the challenge of finding a solution that works.

I especially like the approach we take at ThoughtWorks to data engineering. We look for ways to take all the good stuff from software engineering - things like testing and infrastructure as code - and apply them to data problems.

The Interview

I came to find ThoughtWorks by

An ad on stack overflow. I had heard a lot about ThoughtWorks during my software engineering days but I discovered they were looking for data engineers whilst googling for a solution to a graph problem.
