The Software Engineer, along with the rest of a Smart Services team including the Data Scientists, perform a key role in the development and early stage execution/incubation of the Sage strategy as it relates to the development of data/analytics products to be delivered to Sage customers. This strategy is delivered by developing many Machine Learning based systems & algorithms that together create services used by Sage’ products, our Smart Services Fabric. Services therefore that will power many of our (future) products and new data oriented solutions.
Within the team, the Software Engineer will be responsible for building, enhancing and maintaining the platform, services and systems which enable our Smart Services to operate and to be consumed at high volumes. And work together with and support the Data Scientists to deliver high quality, high performant and production grade Smart Services.
