Data Engineer Job Description

Data engineers are responsible for the extraction and transfer of big data.

They are responsible for creating and building large-scale data processing systems and databases. Once deployed, these engineers maintain and test the systems for proper functioning.

They are responsible for implementing systems that improve the reliability, efficiency and quality of the data systems, and ensure that they meet the needs of the organization's data extraction needs. Data engineers work closely with data experts and analytics to improve information mining and maximize individual data systems.
