Our staff stories are back! This week we are talking data, catching up with GCP Data Engineer Jakub to find out what it takes to work in the world of data at Netpremacy.
What is your role at Netpremacy?
In very simple terms, the key part of a data engineer role involves moving data from one place to another and transforming it along the way so it’s prepared and made available for others to use with ease. Whilst this sounds interesting on its own, my role at Netpremacy is (thankfully!) much broader than that and encompasses all aspects of working with data, starting with its ingestion to GCP through transformation to drawing insights and presenting them back to the project stakeholders.
What 3 traits do you think are vital for your role?
- Attention to detail and focus on quality whilst not losing sight of the big picture.
- Ability to explain and discuss complex concepts in more simple terms.
- Interest in the ever-and fast-changing data landscape.
What are some of the ways you have grown in your role?
I’ve only been at Netpremacy for a year, but I really enjoyed being quickly given quite a lot of responsibility on customer-facing projects. As the data domain grows extremely fast in the current world, I know Netpremacy will continue to explore new data-related products and services that I will welcome a chance to learn about and use.
What are the top 3 things you love about the company?
- Encouragement to try new things and company-wide support throughout.
- Relatively free-rein on solution decision-making within my area.
- The opportunity to use world-class cloud data products.
Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
Doing data projects of course! Remains to be seen whether this gravitates to more in-depth technical development or rather consultancy and data architecture side, as both routes are of interest to me!
What would be your alternative career path?
Working with data is actually an alternative career path as I originally planned to work in finance. In hindsight, I am glad it didn’t work out!
