Overview of FLYR Hospitality

What this role means to us
Technology is core to what we do at FLYR. Our SaaS platform is used daily by an extensive global customer base to understand and optimise their businesses and our analytics engineers are crucial to delivering that platform.
As a Data Engineer, you’ll work alongside the product and platform delivery teams to architect, develop and maintain our core data infrastructure and pipelines, ensuring data is reliably ingested, stored, and ready for use by the product teams. This role will be the main owner for all our data pipelines; designing, implementing and advising on new data architectures is a key part of the role.
