Data Translation Technician

Role:      Data Translation Technician or Trainee Data Translation Technician

Salary:   £18,000 - £22,000 starting salary plus benefits, depending upon experience.

EDI Plus Limited provides computing services to a significant number of clients, ranging from local business to prestigious global brands.

Due to growing demand we are looking to expand our team of experts. You will join our successful and friendly team at our Plymouth Science Park premises, working on a variety of projects. Training will be provided to extend your existing computing capabilities. You will acquire expertise in data communications and data formats

About the role

The job is essentially to create and maintain automated data translation “maps”, using a visual software tool which provides an environment similar to that which software developers use. These “maps” define the rules for the automatic transformation of data between the formats which the sending and receiving party use for their data. We process high volumes of such data for a wide variety of business organisations.

You will work under the instruction of a mentor for several months while you are learning about the various formats and how to use the tools to achieve the required results.

Once proficient in those essential skills, you will spend an increasing part of your time working directly with trading partners yourself, on the phone and by email, to establish and fulfil their requirements.
