What is a Jr Data Engineer?
Jr Data Engineers gather, clean, troubleshoot and process data, so that it can be used by various business teams, data scientists, and analysts. They build technologies of infrastructure, pipelines, dashboards, and processes of technology for unstructured data. Jr Data Engineers may also conduct simple analysis as required.
As key members of the data management and analytics teams, data engineers drive value for the organisation and its clients by having a thorough understanding of data, its purpose, and its usage. Their major responsibilities include designing and building data platforms to collect, store, and retrieve raw data, building data pipelines effectively, applying structured problem-solving techniques to determine solutions, and designing and deploying data solutions on cloud and creating dashboards for further analysis.
Jr Data Engineers will also need to communicate and collaborate with internal and external stakeholders. They will also need to take charge of learning new technical skills to improve their performance and stay current in the industry.
