We’re more than digital. We’re improving lives.

To give our residents life-improving digital services, we need to make the most of our data by turning it into insight and intelligence. As a Data Engineer, you’ll hold the key – and be the catalyst for data innovation.  

This is a chance to pioneer emerging technology and get innovative by using data to create opportunities for the future. Working across the council, you’ll ensure that data enhances the user experience, supports decision-making and solves complex business issues. This means you’ll work with stakeholders to glean a deep understanding of critical challenges and apply analytical techniques to transform data into information and intelligence. 

Day-to-day, you’ll investigate and optimise information sources, providing advice on the transformation of formats and analytics tools. Using a range of systems, you’ll manipulate, distribute and link different data sets while developing new ways to manage and benefit from them.  

You’ll need experience in a similar role, delivering data solutions that are resilient, scalable and future-proof. In return, we can offer the chance to be part of an inclusive team, within an incredible borough. Hounslow has green spaces, unique history, cosmopolitan hubs and fantastic transport links – in short, it’s unlike anywhere else. At the heart of all this is our council, offering flexible working, career development and a whole range of generous benefits.   

Join us at the forefront of innovation and use your skills to make a positive impact.    

Although we are currently working remotely, it is important that you will be able to travel to Hounslow when required after restrictions are lifted. 

You must be eligible to work in the UK.
