Want to lead our technology work to help people with IBD ?

We are looking for a Data Systems Manager – join us

About the role

Our Data Systems Manager role is a new position in the IBD Registry that reflects both our fast growth and increasing technical maturity. The primary function of this role is to lead and drive our work in developing the technical and data architecture platform for our data warehouse together with the tools that enable the capture, extraction, integration and curation of our IBD data, ready for the clinical data analysis that provides new information about IBD to help and support clinical teams, patients and other key stakeholders. 

You will be part of a small and growing and highly collaborative team, reporting to and working closely with the Data Systems Manager, as well as with clinical and academic data specialists including our Clinical Technical Lead and the healthdata specialists AIMES who provide our healthcloud platform.




About you

We are looking for a senior developer who still wants to be hands-on in a fast-moving environment but is looking to move onto the next stage of their career.  You will have experience and interest in modern data warehousing techniques, systems integration and administration and real world data analysis.  You will have developed a proficiency in languages and tools with a focus on data management and analysis (such as SQL and stored procedures, C#, MySQL), and have experience and enjoy finding the right tools for the development activity, preferably open source ones, and in deploying and integrating these successfully into an environment.

You will need to be a strong communicator; specifically, convey data infrastructure, data models, and data engineering solutions with both business and technical teams; willing to learn new languages and technologies, and be an enthusiastic team player who is able to work independently when required.

Your most important attributes will be your readiness and ability to learn, your ‘can do’ mindset coupled with a rigour of thinking and attention to details. Above all, you need to believe in our mission and want to join us to make a difference: our small team makes a big difference in IBD across the UK and this needs to be more than ‘just a job’ for you.
