Data Modeller (Portishead, Bristol) TL235

Epimorphics is hiring for someone with an affinity for data modelling and making sense of intricate data.

Growing fast, we are open to an undergraduate, a postgraduate or a practised Data Modeller alike. You will find us open to your ideas and aspirations, which may go on to shape / become the future of our data modelling capabilities.

We're an exciting company at the forefront of open data publication in the UK, often working on projects of scale and which have a positive benefit for society. You'll be collaborating with and learning from the people who helped define international standards in RDF, linked data and semantic web technology. For example, some of our team chaired the RDF working group for W3C and co-chaired the W3C Technical Architecture Group when it produced the architecture of the Web.

We work with many clients with data rich problems helping them to design, update and improve data models, ontologies and data standards. This role is at the centre of that exciting development. You will soon be delivering at pace with the team working on multiple concurrent projects in the public and private sector, building valuable experience at the cutting edge of data on the web technology.

We're looking for someone with skills in designing data, ideally with linked data modelling skills. We value a passion for working with structured data and a real world appreciation for how data is used. We will encourage your active participation in the data community.

Now is a great time to join us as we expand further, benefiting from a career path that you can directly influence.
