Contract Description

3-4 month contract (initially) to join our small, agile software consultancy, and deliver a data integration solution for our rail industry client.


Residing purely in Amazon Web Services (AWS), the solution will ingest real-time data feeds from a new industry system (currently available as a test service and due for prodution release later in the year), store the results in an existing underlying data model (augmenting with client-specific reference data), and provide RESTful APIs for the downstream consumption of the data, using Amazon API Gateway.


The technologies to be used are:

  • AWS Lambda (using Python 3.7 and boto3)
  • Amazon Aurora (PostgreSQL-compatible)
  • Amazon API Gateway
  • Amazon Step Functions (if appropriate)
  • Amazon ECS Fargate (where needed)
  • Amazon SQS
  • Amazon Kinesis Streams
  • DJango or Flask for the web components


The successful candidate will be proficient in most, and ideally all of the above, with rock solid Python and SQL skills being absolute mandatory requirements.


The role is given significant autonomy to structure the solution architecture and design, albeit considering the need for consistency with our existing solutions where beneficial.


The role is based on the client site in Central London, with likely remote working 2 days per week, at our client 's discretion.
