Drive - As our first data engineer, you will drive technical discussions and decision-making to ensure that Unmind uses the most appropriate technologies and tools for the job.

Collaborate - You will work closely with data analysts, software and systems engineers as well as our wider cross-functional Product Development team to engage with different stakeholders to identify opportunities for leveraging and expanding the organisation’s data assets in order to inform business solutions.
