Role Profile

Reed Professional Services are working with our client’s Data team. The way they approach their data platform – also known as data mesh development – is somewhat new in the industry and it comes with lots of platform automations. There are a great deal of possibilities around computer vision and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and also some really interesting developments in optimisation on the horizon. We have therefore been asked to provide experienced Data Engineers with scripting skills to assist in making a more stable and efficient data environment.
