Data Engineers with AWS experience for PA Consulting

The role

Do you want to be part of a company that helps set the direction for how new technologies such as artificial intelligence, gene sequencing and drones can positively develop our society? A company that helps healthcare services in Denmark, Norway and the UK ensure better preparedness in the fight against COVID-19? A company that assists the pharmaceutical industry in the transition to work data-driven across the value chain? Are you also someone who naturally seeks knowledge and has an open and curious approach to problem solving, then you might be our new colleague.

We are looking for consultants who can strengthen our team with experience in one or more of the following areas of competence:

  • Cloud-native application architecture design and implementation for solutions based on AWS
  • Development of data platform and pipelines using AWS services (e.g. Glue, S3, Lambda)
  • Working knowledge in message queuing and stream processing using services like SQS, Kinesis etc.
  • Deployment and management of infrastructure through IaC (e.g. CloudFormation, Terraform, Ansible)
  • Development of ETL applications using Python/Java
  • Establishment of CI/CD automation, including robust unit testing
  • Project planning and management of small technical projects
  • Proactive stakeholder management (technical as well as non-technical)
  • Digital transformation and data-driven development in the pharmaceutical industry.

As a consultant at PA, your everyday life will be characterised by exciting and complex projects, where you work closely with colleagues from all over PA as well as with the client team and other suppliers. It is therefore essential that you are able to communicate at a high level in both Danish and English and also have strong collaboration skills.

We offer a steep learning curve where you will be challenged from the first working day. You will have the opportunity to continuously improve and certify yourself within the technical domain at the same time as you learn the contents of the management consultant's toolbox. You will get more than 200 of the country's most skilled management consultants as your new colleagues, and you will work in an environment characterised by collaboration, sparring and an informal tone.

You have a higher education that has provided you with technical competences within IT development – preferably supplemented by a strong interest in and knowledge about IT and digitisation in a broader sense.

We are looking for someone who wants to cultivate the technical aspect while learning the management consultant skills. You have one or more years of experience – typically from a position in an IT development house, in the pharmaceutical industry and/or the consulting industry with a focus on the pharmaceutical industry.

In addition, we place great importance on the following competences:

  • Sharp analytical sense and good numeracy
  • Professional insight into the pharmaceutical industry
  • Proven experience or relevant certification in the above areas of competence
  • Ability to communicate complex technical problems to a technical as well as non-technical audience in Danish and English
  • Ability to engage in and manage a complex stakeholder landscape
  • Interest and understanding of digitisation in general
  • Personal impact and integrity.
