Northcoders launches brand new Data Engineering bootcamp and appoints Joe Mulvey as new Data Engineering lead
In direct response to one of the tech industry’s most sought-after specialisms, Northcoders is launching a brand new 13-week full-time Data Engineering bootcamp. The course will be staged either in person at Northcoders’ Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and Newcastle sites or remotely.
Applications are now open. The first set of start dates are: 3rd October and 28th November. Some free scholarship places are available for applicants living in England.
The Data Engineering course has been designed and developed by industry experts to give people the valuable skills they need to kick start a career in data, including roles within data engineering, AI, ML, MLOps and DataOps.
The curriculum will be constantly updated to match the skills employers actually want and will be delivered in a career-first approach. This means students will build a portfolio and will be fully supported by Northcoders’ team of career development experts who will help deploy them into their first industry roles.
The primary function of a data engineer is to build data platforms. That means, for example: getting the data from the source systems to the analytics systems; ensuring that the data is validated and remodelled into a useful format for interrogation; populating the analytics data store; setting up tools for consumers (internal and external) to use the data; securing the data; setting up processes for complex analysis such as machine learning; and making sure all these processes happen quickly, reliably and automatically.
Northcoders has also announced the appointment of Joe Mulvey as its new Head of Data Engineering. Joe, who is a former teacher and a graduate of Northcoders himself, joins the business from Inawisdom. He has also previously worked at Greensill Capital and Auto Trader PLC as well as having a previous career as data analyst, consultant and trader for Barclays Capital in the City.
Joe’s primary focus will be designing and honing the Data Engineering bootcamp curriculum based on his experience as a data engineer which spans a variety of sectors including e-commerce, finance and consultancy.
Commenting, Joe said: “The aim of the new Data Engineering bootcamp is to offer a world leading course that is focused on developing the skills that the tech sector needs. Our ability to adapt quickly means that we will be constantly evolving what we teach and tailoring the curriculum. That is an exciting prospect and will help to create the most talented and in demand data engineers of the future.”
Amul Batra – chief operating officer at Northcoders – added:“This launch is another milestone in our growthand comes at a time when there is huge demand for data engineers. According to LinkedIn’s 2022 "Jobs on the Rise" report, data engineering is listed as one of the fastest-growing careers in the UK; whilst the average salary for a data engineer is £60k.We have already helped to create over 1000 software development superstars, so this is a natural step for the business. Under Joe’s stewardship I’m sure it will be a huge success and will become an integral part of our offering over the coming years.”
