Power BI, Google Data Studio, Python, Tableau, Qlik, Fusion Charts, Highcharts, Datawrapper, Plotly Sisense… are we speaking your language?! Do you ever wish CodeMonkey was around when you grew up?!
We are looking for a Data Engineer who is, in essence a hybrid between a Data Engineer, Analyst, and Data Architect… but has a passion for tech in the renewable energy space – someone who wants to be a game changer. If this sounds like you, you could find yourself developing an energy management dashboard from scratch. Pretty exciting right?
If you have over three years of hands-on experience designing, maintaining and analysing different databases to gather market research – you the person we are looking for! We are looking for a Data Engineer who is interested in being a core part of the R&D team for a renewable energy EPC which focuses on providing rural African communities with access to energy and the benefits of electricity. In this role your main focus will be analysing data to understand changing dynamics within the rural energy market and then intelligently developing a dashboard that can feed in these 1,000,000’s of data points into a fully functioning system. It is imperative that you have a passion and understanding of the renewable energy industry, allowing you to uncover trends and make informed decisions within a familiar market.
If you enjoy sitting at a desk cracking away at code, this is the role for you. In supporting R&D requirements, your core responsibilities will include drawing, transforming and understanding data from various sources including power electronics, smart meters, batteries and ticketing systems to name a few. Your experience maintaining and analysing large sets of data will ensure you are able to gather and collate this data into a cohesive portal of information, of which you will need to report on, to your managers and funders. You will create data dashboards using industry specific algorithms and processes, which allow for interpretation of market activities such as how much power is being sold, where it is being sold, and what is it being used for. It is essential that you are able to both gather this information and reflect it in the systems you build. The company has a start-up nature and values intelligence in the team, people who are innovative problem-solvers. Considering they have made a name for themselves in a short time-frame, team members who reflect their vision for accelerating access to energy and do it through ingenious methods will quickly grow their career within the firm.
If you believe you can go above and beyond to create customisable solutions for our client to better understand their complex market, apply for this role!
P.S. Although Johannesburg is not Silicon Valley, this opportunity is darn close to what tech innovations are coming out there… plus did we mentioned that this company is not new to patenting their smart tech?!
