Lead Data Engineering Consultant

As a Lead Data Engineering Consultant at Ensono Digital, we will expect you to be playing a key leadership role. Most of your time will be spent building one of our client’s big data solutions and you will help that client to realise the business benefit of an investment into the cloud.

About the role and what you'll be doing

You will be a self-starter, and proactive in your project work and your career, continuously looking for ways to add value, improve and lead your community and Ensono Digital.
