Data DevOps Manager- (Part-Time, Job-Share and Full-Time)
Location: Whiteley, Fareham, UK
As an insurance company, Zurich understands that data is the biggest asset we have – and is critical to driving improved operational performance and feeding the strategic analytics insight we develop. Our previous CEO is widely quoted as saying ‘data is the new oil’ - and we have a Texas-sized data oil well just waiting to be tapped.
At its core, our Data DevOps function seeks to build better quality data solutions faster. With a background in data engineering, you’ll be in a key position to blend technology, process and people into a solid continuous development stream that operates smoothly and to a high standard of delivery.
As someone with previous knowledge of DevOps and a solid understanding of data warehousing and analytics, you’ll be working to transform our existing pipelines into a fully automated environment and manage the integration of our existing Data Engineering and Data Platform teams into a single coherent unit. Taking accountability for the delivery of a large portfolio of work you will work closely with our Lead Data Architect to ensure a solid, sustainable work pipeline is embedded into the team – and ensure we’re doing the right things at the right time. You’ll be seen as a trusted technical advisor both to your direct reports and to the wider management team, and as such will blend excellent leadership skills with a solid data background and technical ability.
Reporting to the Head of Data, you’ll join our Data, Architecture and Analytics team (DAA) - an industry award-winning team responsible for our UK data needs – we’re connected to almost every part of our business. If you’re truly passionate about data, can think strategically whilst balancing a good level of pragmatism - and are prepared to challenge how things get done - then you could be a key part of our team.
