Categorization Tool TA

We want to build an application that will ingest data from multiple sources, some extracts and longer-term via APIs, analyse the data, use decision trees to product outputs, retain these decisions and integrate with a separate workflow application being built in Sheffield. Possible languages are Java or Python. The candidate should ideally be hands on as it gives the most value. We are looking for someone who has dealt with large dataset and processing data, using enterprise techniques.

Minimum Requirement:

Provide hands-on technical leadership, in the development, operation and ongoing improvement of complex, transformational digital services serving millions of users.

Work with product managers to understand user needs for new and existing services.

Act as the technical authority in prospective, information gathering and scene setting meetings, evaluate technical proposals from external suppliers, and make implementation recommendations to senior stakeholders.

Identify key API requirements for integration with internal and external systems.

Lead development of user-driven prototypes to identify technical options and inform architectural approaches, working with colleagues and supplier team members to write tests, code and documentation for new and existing systems.

Ensure system architectures are robust, scalable, open and secure, with appropriate overall system design and integration points/APIs, to deliver a high-quality user experience.

DO not want enterprise architects.

• Undertake structured analysis of technical issues, translating this analysis into technical designs that describe a solution

• Lead the set-up and configuration of developer tooling, workflow and pipelines within agile product teams

• Monitor trends in existing and emerging technologies, evaluating and identifying new opportunities, integrations and solutions

• Own and manage relationships with technical and non-technical stakeholders, and external technical contacts to influence/ make the case for technical interventions, contribute to business cases and translate technical concepts

• Help publicise our achievements and learning through blog posts, events, etc

• Occasionally participate in 2nd line support during office hours, and sometimes out of hours (for which you’ll be paid an allowance and further hourly payment when on call)
