Minimum Experience Senior Manager/Supervisor

Adatis are looking for a Data Architect to join us as a Principal Consultant, during what are exciting time here!

Adatis are a Microsoft Gold partner who is fast becoming recognised as leaders within Data Strategy, Analytics and Architecture. We have helped some of the most recognised names within e-commerce, health, and advertising to create platforms that manage and make sense of their vast datasets.


Through word of mouth, our reputation is growing with more and more businesses needing our expertise. And with this, we are going through a rapid expansion with the need for Principal Data Consultants to sit as the design authority for projects to join our team!


We value our people above all else and have a culture of knowledge sharing and development. You will get time to spend on R&D, the latest technologies and training from some of the best in the industry. We treat our clients' business like it were our own and in turn, we don't have utilisation targets for our consultants. We're not big on hierarchy or layers of managers – our internal relationships are based on trust. If you enjoy managing your own day with support when you need it, are self-aware and self-motivated, then we're for you!   


As a Principal Data Consultant, you will be brought on to focus on the design and delivery of enterprise-level data solutions from the earliest discovery phases of projects through prototyping, architectural design and delivery. You will be working with Azure tools such as Data Bricks, Data Factory as well as Hadoop to create big data environments which, in turn, will help businesses to gain greater insight into their big data repositories.


This is a client-facing position, so the ideal candidate must be willing to travel when needed. 


Our UK offices are in Farnham and London, the Bulgaria office is in Sofia and our latest office opened in Pune, India in April this year.  The role can be based at either UK location. You'll be working, collaborating and socialising with your colleagues across all our offices.


What will I be doing?


  • Working on projects that utilise products within the Microsoft Azure and SQL Data analytics stack
  • Satisfying the expectations and requirements of customers, both internal and external
  • Supporting others in their development
  • Contributing to the Adatis and external community


What experience/skills do I need?


  • Strategic and operational decision-making skills
  • Ability to guide, direct or influence people
  • Ability to identify opportunities and issues
  • Willingness to learn based on feedback
  • Able to help others develop

  • Experience in using Microsoft BI Stack (SSRS, SSIS, or SSAS)
  • Experience in building data solutions in Azure
  • Commercial experience of Power BI for data visualisation
  • Involvement in architectural decisions for data solutions
  • An interest in Data Science and Data Modelling


What about technical skills?


Peoples skills vary and that’s great because the role varies. You should be comfortable with most of the core technologies below and have had exposure to the others from the following list. Current Microsoft certifications are useful but not mandatory – we’ll help you get those!



  • T-SQL / Python
