LADbible Group is one of the largest youth publishers in the world. We have a global audience approaching 1 billion. We reach over half of all UK adults and nearly two thirds of 18-34 year olds in the UK.
Following on from my role as Head of Software Engineering, I analysed the Data Science team to see how I could improve the effectiveness of the team across the company. Alongside a continuous culture shift piece, I worked with engineers and data scientists to ensure the architecture was first delivering the most value and second suitable to scale as the company evolved at speed. This project took a two-pronged approach, starting with the stabilisation of their ETL pipeline, to then planning out how the architecture could look in a cloud-based setup. I appointed a Lead Data Engineer to continue to lead the project in the direction we agreed upon collectively.
