Over de functie

Our client continues to expand its focus on data for a growing number of customers and its internal operations. To keep up with growing demand, they are looking for a Data Engineer.

Our client keeps their customers moving forward by designing, building and running their data landscapes. These landscapes are often developed in public cloud environments, but there is diversity in implementation: no customer is the same. They have data lake environments on their own MCC (Mission Critical Cloud), AWS, Azure and more.  

As Data Engineer you are part of a multi-disciplinary team. Their teams are completely self-steering, meaning no managers, and every team member is in direct contact with the customer.  You will be taking on various cases, as well as finding answers to questions like these;

  • What data quality rules are there and how should they be implemented?

  • Which storage solution(s) is/are required?

  • How and with what tooling will we do ETL?

  • What ingestion types are required?

  • How will governance of the entire landscape be done?

  • What is required to train my ML model effectively?

  • … and many more.

As a Data Engineer, you get to actively explore, design, build and run data lakes in one of the public clouds. Colleagues that work with on different projects or with different customers will come to you and the team for knowledge and expertise. Your work is customer focused but will also contribute to expanding and maturing the clients data landscape architecture and its initiatives.


Your new employer believes in craftsmanship and we believe that building and maintaining complex application ecosystems can be done by putting experts in the lead. We’re looking for a Data Engineer with the following experience:

  • Developing and maintaining data pipelines.

  • Comfortable with DevOps-driven teams.

  • Configuring and managing tools like Spark, Glue, Kinesis, S3, Lambda, Kafka, Redshift, Athena, EventHub, etc.

  • Supporting tooling such as Gitlab (CI/CD), Ansible (Automation), Terraform (Infra)

  • Affinity with scripting languages, preferably Python.

  • Ability to self-organize; you are in control of your destination, there is no management.

  • Capable of communicating proficiently with a customer that has various levels of expertise.

If you are a strong team player who recognizes their selves in the above, likes to take ownership, can work independently as part of a team, and can challenge us on our decisions: we’d like to hear from you.


*  Permanent contract directly with the client
*  Technical interview is part of the procedure
