Some of the projects our Technical Project Manager will be helping us with are;
- The creation of our new data-warehouse/data-lake combination (AWS, Redshift, Spark Athena), aimed at providing a consolidated, transparent, and easy-to-use repository of most of Zopa’s data, driving our modelling, monitoring, and reporting efforts.
- The migration of our backend platform to a scalable, distributed, event-based, on-the-cloud infrastructure (AWS, Kafka, Java, Python, C#)
The role’s responsibilities include:
- Day-to-day accountability for the successful delivery of the projects
- Facilitating communication and cooperation via stand-ups, presentations, meetings, and workshops
- Working with other Project and Product Managers, and with higher management (CTO, CPO, and Head of Data Science) to gather requirements, create roadmaps, and set the deliverables
- Working with the software developers and data engineers to monitor progress, ensure smooth delivery, and proactively and decisively resolve blocks
- Use of advanced programme delivery methods, including, governance structures, programme planning, budget management
- Acquiring close familiarity with the data processing and warehousing technologies used in Zopa
These are the essential elements, that we think will make a good Technical Project Manager here at Zopa:
- Extensive experience managing technical and data-related projects.
- Clear, persuasive, and effective communication in both technical and non-technical levels.
- Passion for technology – strong knowledge and grasp of technology and what it allows.
- Agile Project Management methodology
- Technical experience - ideally first-hand experience as a developer, engineer, tester, or data scientist
- Knowledge and experience within cloud-based infrastructures (e.g., Amazon Web Services), event-based processing (e.g., Kafka), and proper data warehousing (e.g., enterprise data warehouses with AWS Redshift and data lakes with Spark/AWS Athena).
- Familiarity with data governance, data privacy, and information security concepts
