Data Engineer

Closing Date: Sep 24, 2021

The Data Engineer will initially work with the CRITFC IT Services team to assess and identify CRITFC data and data services that are suitable for migration on a pilot basis from internal network locations to CRITFC’s existing Azure or AWS cloud tenants. Source data may include unstructured data (files), or structured data (SQL databases). Source services may include database or web servers with or without application layers. Once the data and data services appropriate for migration are identified, the Data Engineer will evaluate and propose the appropriate technologies to maintain the data and provide ongoing data services in the cloud with the necessary levels of security, reliability, cost, and performance.

After the proposed pilot projects are accepted, the Data Engineer will work with Microsoft or Amazon to provision the necessary cloud infrastructure and technologies, ensuring that appropriate data integrity measures are in place. The Engineer will then work with IT or project staff to migrate the data and data services, test the results for security and reliability, and present those for acceptance. Upon acceptance, the Engineer will document the resulting systems and train IT and project staff to conduct ongoing maintenance and management of those systems.

Once CRITFC has successfully piloted the migration of key data and data services to the cloud, the Data Engineer will change focus to working with IT and project teams on an ongoing basis to assess and improve data management at CRITFC, particularly in the areas of data ingestion, transformation, and presentation.
