Were looking for a real expert in Big Data to join one of the Worlds biggest names in telecoms and media. This isnt your typical Data position though. As despite looking for someone who has experience within Big Data, were not looking for a practitioner. As this role is a consulting position, sitting between the firms technology division and the end users of the data. Understanding their business needs and advising them of the appropriate solutions to implement in order to achieve their objectives.

We need someone who really understands the different tools and uses including:

Data architecture tools Big data toolsets, including Hadoop, R, Python, Sqoop, MongoDB, Hive, etc. Relational databases Oracle, SQL, Golden Gate Data management, discovery and governance tools Collibra, Alex Data virtualisation technologies BlueData

Your remit will be to ensure the company has the data backbone in place to allow the flexibility and adaptability they need not just for now, but for the future.

Understanding the future landscape of needs for the firm with its data, and establishing business cases around decision like:

Data lakes and their warehousing strategy. How to make data available externally Deciding the governance process and how to put it in place to enable this What tech to use for replication of data


Youll be working across the companys community of data specialists and those who need access to it. Looking after their 35 year roadmap.

Considering the various use cases theyre looking to deliver, and understand where the potential limitation or pinch points might be. Then how you can support them by marrying your knowledge of the data ecosystem (the various tools, their features and benefits), with the business challenges theyre looking to tackle.

This is best described as being a clientside management consulting position. Handling a large stream of projects all centred around continuously improving the companys ability to commercial use data and do so appropriately.


The role sits between the companys Technology division and the Data practitioner community. Identifying the opportunities to enhance what theyre able to do and the speed at which things can be delivered. Developing business cases and gaining approval for implementation of new tech based solutions. Then putting them onto the roadmap of the Technology division to be delivered.


As part of your consulting process, you will need to dig into the needs of that Data stakeholder community. Understand if, what they think they need, they do. If not, youve got to be able to push back appropriately and challenge their ideas. Ensuring their thinking is robust and providing your own subject matter expertise to guide and advise accordingly.


Theres massive scope here, being a new unit. The business has the appetite for change, and their Data community is looking to embrace a toolagnostic mentality delivering a best in class solution. Putting to work the best tools for any particular challenge. So your stakeholders are ready to embrace new things and youre going to be joining a business of significant scale with tens of millions of customers, revenue in double digital billions per annum and are embracing new ways of thinking, new product opportunities and innovation like never before!
