Do you want to work for an iconic Western Australian organisation committed to changing lives and making a difference to your community?
St John WA is a charitable, not-for-profit organisation that is most known for providing WA’s ambulance service, but also delivers a range of healthcare services to support healthy and resilient communities. For example:
The Business Intelligence department at St John WA uses data analysis and visualisation tools to help the organisation make informed decisions to better serve the community.
The department consists of 14 staff split between an Analysis and Reporting unit, and a Data Engineering and Governance unit. Current team members have diverse backgrounds with qualifications including physics, mathematics, software engineering, biotechnology, and business, as well as having previously worked across the government, private, academic, and defence sectors.
An exciting full-time opportunity is now available for a Data Engineer to join the team in a permanent position, based at our head office in Belmont.
Note that this position can be filled at an Intermediate, Senior, or Principal level, subject to the skills and experience of the successful candidate. As such applications are encouraged from both experienced professionals keen to contribute their skills to a community focussed organisation, as well as more junior data engineers looking for the next step in their career.
Our Data Engineers are responsible for developing and maintaining the St John WA data warehouse for the purpose of facilitating commercial, operational, and strategic reporting. This includes taking a lead role in developing dimensional data models and establishing ETL pipelines between source systems, the data warehouse, and cloud-based visualisation and analysis tools.
This role reports to the Manager Data Engineering and Governance, and works closely with Business Intelligence Analysts, Database Administrators, Developers, and external contractors to ensure clear communication and coordination of work.
You will be part of a highly capable, motivated, and collegial team, with a mandate to engage with and influence key stakeholders from various levels across the organisation and to provide high quality services to St John WA and the community.
You will have strong support from management and the organisation to implement our vision of what Business Intelligence can be now and in the future, as well as being given the space to work proactively, innovate, and drive new initiatives. The team operates with flexible work arrangements and provides excellent professional development opportunities.
The successful candidate will have excellent critical thinking skills and attention to detail, combined with experience in a similar role working with complex data in a fast-paced organisation.
Note: experience specific to the health care sector is not a requirement, and candidates with transferable technical skills from any background are encouraged to apply.
