Open to remote work


Nationwide’s industry-leading workforce is passionate about creating data solutions that are secure, reliable, and efficient in support of our mission to provide extraordinary care. Nationwide embraces an agile work environment and collaborative culture through the understanding of business processes, relationship entities, and requirements using data analysis, quality, visualization, governance, engineering, robotic process automation, and machine learning to produce targeted data solutions. If you have the drive and desire to be part of a future-forward data-enabled culture, we want to hear from you.

As a Data Engineer, you’ll be responsible for acquiring, curating, and publishing data for analytical or operational uses. Data should be in a ready-to-use form that creates a single version of the truth across all data consumers, including business users, data scientists, and Technology. Ready-to-use data can be for both real-time and batch data processes and may include unstructured data. Successful data engineers have the skills typically required for full lifecycle software engineering development from translating requirements into design, development, testing, deployment, and production maintenance tasks. You’ll have the opportunity to work with various technologies from big data, relational and SQL databases, unstructured data technology, and programming languages.

Join a team, leading innovation at Nationwide in both analytical techniques and business capacities with many firsts at Nationwide.  An ideal candidate is passionate about both being technically advanced and delivering business solutions where you enjoy working directly with business users and managers, and receiving compliments for your results.

You will be working in an advanced analytics environment that is using the best technical products from streaming tools, Spark, Python, ML/AI tools, and Snowflake in AWS.  The business environment is that you will have opportunities to work in combined business and technical teams or user groups to focus on delivering business solutions with substantial value.  You will get to see the “fruits of your labor” with both business and IT leader feedback, and not feel that you are disconnected from seeing tangible results.

The role is a poly skilled role so you can wear many hats from data analyst, designer, coder, and tester in the data engineering role so you can deliver high-quality solutions with velocity.  You will work in an agile team with a data product owner and with business stories so you have a good understanding of the business value desired and have creativity and freedom to work with the business on how to design and build the business solution with some architectural guidelines.

A suitable background for this data engineering role is a current analytics solution builder who has an IT background but may have also worked in a business department building analytical solutions directly for a business leader.  The technical background can a person who is currently a big data engineer who may be working on legacy technologies such as Hadoop, and other environments where strong SQL with a programming language skill has been developed.  Nationwide offers extensive training to advance your skills from DataBricks and Python classes to business training to advance your business/data expertise in a specific business domain like claims processing.  A $5K tuition reimbursement is also offered after one year so you can take university classes in AI, ML, or other areas of interest.

Multiple levels of job responsibilities for a big data engineer exist from junior, senior, and principal level roles are open.  The candidate will be joining a high-performing team that is passionate and motivated about meeting customer needs while also taking pride in its technical capabilities and delivery.  We like to champion innovation by using new tools or capabilities to address a business requirement that has not been addressed in the past.   The team you will be joining is part of Nationwide’s Enterprise Data Office whose leader is the Chief Data Officer for Nationwide that is responsible for the analytics tooling and databases, technical accelerators, data governance, data strategy, data engineering, and data operations at Nationwide.

Nationwide currently has undertaken a massive analytics transformation program that will allow you to get in on the “ground floor” and become a key part of Nationwide’s analytical future.  You will have the opportunity to create new capabilities with little “legacy” or required enhancement of existing code.
