Ingesting data from sources into the data lake is only part of your job. Together with your team you are also responsible for transforming the data through different stages (i.e. from landing zone to data warehouse and data mart). This means that designing, standardizing and reviewing data(warehouse) models, both technical and logical, is also part of your job. Because of the central position of the data engineer you will play a crucial role in translating business requirements into data products like pipelines and data marts. Additionally, you also manage the required data quality standards (availability, integrity, confidentiality, actuality, frequency and completeness).

  • help define quality standards for the team and share your knowledge
  • a close collaboration with our local data teams in continuing to shape the technical vision and recast problems and challenges into innovative solutions
  • work closely with the business functions to identify the problem statement and work towards answering those from a data perspective
  • give advice on potential areas where data streams can be optimised
  • experiment with available tools and advice on new tools in order to determine optimal solutions given the requirements


  • has a bachelor or master degree in informatics/computer science
  • You will have at least 2/3 years of working experience with ETL (preferably ELT) 
  • you will have at least 2/3 years of working experience with database design, data modelling and normalisation techniques
  • expert knowledge of SQL
  • experience in cloud infrastructure and Cloud based way of working, knowledge of GCP and technologies like Bigquery, Dataflow/Apache Beam and Composer/Airflow is a (big)plus
  • have some experience in architecture in complex IT landscapes
  • experience with multiple program coding languages
  • experience with scalable data platforms, security, authorisation and authentication.
  • experience with common devops and CI/CD practices to guarantee the quality of our products
  • be comfortable with an agile way of working


  • we encourage experiments and exploration, which does mean you should be able to adapt to a variety of challenges and like quick feedback loops
