Lead Information Technology Full Time Hybrid: Dubai

Description What we’re all about.

It isn’t often you get to be part of a tech company that, since 2016, has been innovating the data analytics market in ways no-one else can. Our technology started out in FinTech, helping tackle serious criminal activity. Now, its potential is virtually limitless. Working at Quantexa isn't just intellectually stimulating. We’re a real team. Collaborating and constantly engineering better and better solutions. We’re ambitious, we think things through and we’re on a mission to discover just how far we can go. Nearly half of our colleagues come from an ethnic or religious minority background. We’re made up of people from 47 nationalities who speak over 20 languages. As a diverse mix of individuals, we make one big unstoppable team. If our incredible culture sounds like you, we’d love you to join us.


  • You will lead, support, and mentor a team of junior data engineers within an agile framework.
  • Write defensive, fault tolerant and efficient code for production level data processing systems.
  • You’ll configure and deploy Quantexa’s software using tools such as Spark, Hadoop, Scala, Elasticsearch, with our platform being hosted on both private and public virtual clouds, such as Google cloud, Microsoft Azure and Amazon.
  • You will be a trusted source of knowledge to your clients. You will articulate technical concepts to a non-technical audience helping them to make big decisions.
  • Collaborate with both our solution architects and our R&D engineers to champion solutions and standards for complex big data challenges. You proactively promote knowledge sharing and ensure best practice is followed.


  • You’ll have a background in hands-on technical development, with at least five years of industry experience in a data engineering role or engineering equivalent, and at least 18 months of experience acting in a lead role within a data or software engineering team.
  • Proficiency in Scala, Java, Python, or a programming language associated with data engineering. Our primary language is Scala, but don’t worry if that’s not currently your strongest language, we believe that strong engineering principles are universal and transferrable.
  • You’ll have expertise building and deploying production level data processing batch systems maintained by application support teams. Importantly you’ll share an appreciation of what makes a high quality, operationally stable system and how to streamline all areas of development, release, and operations to achieve this.
  • Experience with a variety of modern development tooling (e.g. Git, Gradle, Nexus) and technologies supporting automation and DevOps (e.g. Jenkins, Docker and a little bit of good old Bash scripting). You’ll be familiar with developing within a version-controlled process that regularly makes use of these tools and technologies.
  • A strong technical communication ability with demonstrable experience of working in rapidly changing client environments.
