We’re an award-winning innovative tech consultancy – a team of creative problem solvers. Since 1993 we’ve been finding better, more sustainable ways to solve complex technology problems for some of the world’s leading organisations and delivered solutions that millions of people use every day.

In the last 30 years we won several awards, including a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category for our Enterprise Agile delivery approach.

About the Role

We work with clients across all aspects of deriving value from data: from technical implementations like modern data warehousing; through to massively scalable analytics and ML solutions. We help our customers embrace a DataOps culture. We are advocates of Agile methodologies and believe in constant delivery of business value.

Our projects manifest both on-premise or in cloud, often driving business intelligence and machine learning capabilities, helping customers achieve their Data as a Service ambitions.

As a technical authority, you will interface directly with customers representing BJSS’ deep technical expertise. You will lead delivery teams by example, providing the insight to enable them to craft great solutions that delight our customers.

You’ll mentor others to ensure they see the wider picture and meet our exacting standards, while championing the deep experience they bring.

Technology and data are your passions and you get huge reward from seeing excellent solutions delivered. You’re an enthusiastic champion for your subject, and your energy and delivery-focused attitude wins the respect of those around you as a trusted technical advisor.

You’re willing to be hands-on when necessary and able to balance innovation and intellectual rigour with pragmatism.

You have a constant drive to learn. You’re genuinely passionate about understanding the challenges your customers face and how you can help them.

You’ll bring wide experience of the data ecosystem, including: numerous data platforms e.g. Databricks; data modelling approaches; public cloud services including AWS and Azure; a deep knowledge and focus on security and privacy and their applications on data platform implementations; and OLTP and analytical warehouses.

With experience in Agile and C-Level stakeholder engagement, you’ll be knowledgeable in the full product lifecycle from discovery to delivery and a champion of quality.
