Data Engineering is a critical role in many businesses and is often a position that is in high demand, especially in the IT industry. Data Engineers spend most of their time transforming data pulled from programs or algorithms into a format that can be easily analyzed. Part of a Data Engineers’ job is maintaining, developing, and testing the systems and infrastructures that provide this data generation. Data Engineers work closely with Data Scientists and often are in charge of creating the solutions that make it possible for Data Scientists to do their jobs.

Data Engineers typically work closely with the infrastructures that they create, as well as the people, like Data Scientists, that will use those structures for their job. Typical responsibilities include working to optimize and expand existing data and data pipeline architecture, as well as streamlining that data for collection and use across teams at every level of a company. Data Engineers ensure that consistent data delivery is available to teams across ongoing projects in order for the best results across the company. Some skills that are optimal for Data Engineers are data pipeline experience, Data Engineering certifications from places like IBM or Google, technical skills, creative problem solving, and a bachelor’s degree in computer science, information technology, or applied mathematics.
