Dreaming for tomorrow is about more than ideas and ambitions. We're already building the next generation of vehicles, using repurposed and brand-new technology and techniques. We're doing more than dream, we're creating the future of mobility and automotive for years to come.


We are looking for a Big Data Engineer with proven experience of maintaining data pipelines using one or more data pipeline runner that handle high throughput with low latency in production, working on customer feedback to improve running pipelines, and working with other big data engineers.

This role provides a rare opportunity to join an entirely new data capability within Jaguar Land Rover's Global Digital Development team. You will form an essential part of a collaborative, iterative and agile process within a team of designers, software, DevOps and quality engineers helping deliver best in class digital solutions to the business and its customers.

You will be responsible for:

  • Helping to manage pipelines used by internal JLR customers delivered by our pipeline-as-a-service product.
  • Observing, maintaining, and fine-tuning customer's pipelines in production.
  • Helping feed the product backlog for the pipeline-as-a-service product via customer feedback.
  • Interacting with other teams in the pipelines-as-a-service group to help deliver customer satisfaction in this novel space.

Do you thrive in an exciting, dynamic and creative start-up environment, but also enjoy the security, resources and influence of an established and successful organisation? Would you excel within a world-class and passionate team that loves what they do? Are you looking for an influential role that can truly make a difference?

Reporting directly to the Lead Big Data Engineer on your team, you will be a valued member of the Global Digital Development team, contributing to the strategic direction of the data technology and solutions delivered.


You will need to be happy and comfortable running, observing, and fine-tuning big data pipelines in production environments using pipeline runners such as Google Cloud Dataflow.

You be familiar with streaming technologies including Kafka and have experience with object-orientated programming, ideally using Java.

Additionally, you will have:

  • Experience with Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform
  • Ability to collaborate with software engineers, platform-reliability engineers, product owners, agile delivery leads, and customers in cross-functional teams.
  • Willingness to contribute to process improvement initiatives.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills


Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you'll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

Please be aware that we may close this vacancy for applications before the stated deadline if we receive a high volume of interest. We strongly advise you to submit your application as early as possible.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
