Job Description:

We’re looking for an expert in data and analytics, with a passion for software engineering. Bring your experience to an exciting role that’s leading the way in innovation and performance-driven data. In return, we’ll give you every opportunity to develop your skills.

Where you fit

You’re going to be key to our success, working as a hands-on technical expert within the data and analytics team in Shell’s Gas, Power and Environmental trading division – which represents the biggest growth space, with Power especially trading critical in terms of electrification.

This is a fast-paced and dynamic environment with ever changing needs, where you’ll be working on a data and analytics platform that supports traders, analysts and operations teams by providing IT tools, data and analysis.

What’s the role?

Simply put, that means capturing data, then presenting it, for the desk analyst to utilise in ways that will support key decision-making.

Your experience at working under pressure, to tight deadlines will come into its own here, as you manage wide-ranging duties, including:

  • Developing tools within an Azure cloud platform and spotting opportunities to drive the data platform forwards.

  • Following data engineering standards and processes.

  • Designing and implementing data pipelines to extract, clean and process data from different data sources.

Naturally, we’ll also expect you to use your excellent interpersonal and communication skills to work successfully with diverse global stakeholders, and nurture relationships with traders and teams that moves data engineering forward.
