The Opportunity


As a Data Engineer you will be part of the R&D Digital Innovation team. You will be supported by teammates with a diverse set of skills, and your contribution as a Data Engineer will be valuable to developers, data scientists and machine learning engineers. 

We’re looking for someone who is motivated to design and implement database architectures for various types of data, develop and deploy code that can efficiently query these databases in a scalable manner, maintain ETL (Extract, Load, Transform) pipelines for data scientists and/or machine learning engineers and set up cloud hosted services to deploy applications.

You will have the opportunity to enjoy exploring and experimenting with state-of-the-art tools and technologies around data visualisation and big data.

You’ll be working on exciting projects covering many topics, scopes and clients, both international and local. These could include:
●    detecting damages from remote imaging,
●    profiling and optimising electric vehicle fleets,
●    extracting useful information from smart metre electric load curves,
●    web scraping and text mining for topic modelling,
●    estimating households’ heating efficiency, and
●    developing cloud-hosted web dashboards to visualise sensitive plant data. 

There will also be ample opportunities for you to contribute to new, upcoming projects such as:
●    a management tool for nuclear plant engineers to monitor alarm signals,
●    an automated HR recruitment tool, or
●    a database for handling decommissioning operations of nuclear power plants.

We like thinking outside the box and strive to stay on top of new trends and innovation. As such, we constantly explore new topics and projects, so you will definitely not be bored!

Our teams are set up to work flexibly and we provide a full suite of IT equipment to ensure that our employees can work from home comfortably and effectively. Eugénie Roques VIE - Developer says “The digital innovation team allows flexible working hours and respects that all members have their own schedule. It is a valuable quality as you can plan your day based on your personal constraints without feeling pressured. I have been able to attend sport classes off-peak hours and spend quality time with my family thanks to this effective way of working. I have the perfect work-life dynamic!”

The Role and Skills


Being a Data Engineer at EDF means you will have good knowledge of data structures and be able to demonstrate experience in an object-oriented programming language.

We’re looking for someone with a degree in a quantitative field (computer science, mathematics, data science) or a certification or specific training in addition or instead of a degree.
