The Role:
Data Services Developer
DeltaRail is passionate about the need to drive up services and consumer access across public transportation and are currently implementing technology that makes this possible.
We are building a transport data platform that includes a wide range of sources, from operational to social, geospatial to live. We have deployed websites and Apps into the public domain and are currently looking to expand our solutions capability and reach.
In this role, you will be responsible for putting together a backbone of services on the AWS platform that is scalable and secure, in an environment where we are managing both consumer-generated and publically available data. Demonstrable experience in this environment will be vital and we will be looking to you to bring forward techniques and technologies that enable us to build an analytics platform on the available data.
You will need to have strong personal drive and a desire to succeed. You will be able to demonstrate how to drive projects forward despite obstacles. You will be working with others in a small team where everyone needs to own and enhance the projects outcomes. You should have experience of working within an Agile development environment where rigour in the design and implementation is essential and must work to support, not restrain, the delivery of product. This is not a role for someone looking to add languages to their CV; this is a role for those who want to make a difference to commuter’s lives using technology to connect them.
The key attributes we will be looking for are:
 To engage in multiple projects simultaneously, ask tough questions, and challenge assumptions
 Be familiar and comfortable with the use of application management tools (e.g. JIRA, GitHub etc.) and Test driven Development principles
 To be assertive and resilient, capable of working independently
 Working at pace and comfortable in fast-moving development environments
This role is about building the back end services, data stores and APIs. Familiarity with some of the following technologies will be expected.
 Microservices development
 Experienced with Java
 RESTful API Development & Deployment methods
 Cloud hosting environments
 Relational and NoSQL database technologies ideally MySQL and MongoDB, with graph databases (Neo4j) also desirable
 Frameworks for processing high volume, high transaction algorithms and analytics
 Security and handling personal data
Don’t be put off if you only know a subset of these – the desire to learn is key.
