We at River Island are changing the way we work with our Data. As a Principle Data Engineer, you will play a key role in our major Data Transformation moving from a our legacy Oracle Data Warehouse to a modern day cloud based Data Platform. The role will see you join a unique Architecture team and offer a career path into Architecture.   

WHAT YOU DO MATTERS…

At River Island, we believe that each member of our architecture team should be able to lead a solution design and drive its implementation, but also be able to contribute to the wider enterprise strategy that we build and evolve as a community. Who better to ensure that the enterprise vision is delivered than the architects on the ground delivering solutions?
