Data Engineer

As a Data Engineer, you are responsible for setup, deployment and productionising of data-intensive systems.


Data Engineer

You are an engineer at heart with a pragmatic attitude and the responsibility of someone maintaining production systems. You are passionate about provisioning and automation and know that building a robust system takes true skill and care.

How will you help

to create value with Data & AI

At GoDataDriven we build strong Data & AI practices to deliver value to our clients and their customers. In the past our team of data professionals has predicted the daily demand for millions of loaves of bread, built advanced energy-saving algorithms to nationwide scale, and set up data innovation labs at large multinational corporations. We enjoy great success in making top companies AI-driven — just think of what more we can achieve when YOU join our team!

As a data engineer you are responsible for the setup, deployment and productionising of data-intensive systems. You develop data pipelines that perform data transformation and pre-processing, and are able to deploy them at scale in a public cloud. You make sure that data is stored securely and safely using the technology that you see fit for the job.

What will you do

to make data intensive applications work effectively and securely?

With your knowledge of software, clusters, queues, containers, streaming, and graphs you work on business-critical systems with lots of data, or help build such systems from the ground up. You work at the client in teams that are a mix of people from GDD and the client, and pick up the work that is related to the backbones of the application or service the team is building.

When you're working on-site with a client you may come across something that is really difficult to solve. Luckily, every few weeks everyone from GDD comes to our office to work remotely on their projects where you have the opportunity to discuss and even solve your problems with the help of the hive mind of GDD. If that's too long to wait, everybody at GDD is just a quick message away and ready to help at any time.

Why this job

is your dream job

  • if you like working with new data processing tools, like Airflow, Spark, Flink, and Druid.
  • if you understand the importance of cloud and know your way around or want to learn that.
  • if you like working for different clients and enjoy the excitement of regularly getting to learn new environments and know new people.

is not something you want

  • if you do not like working under pressure to get things done in the best way possible with limited time you have to finish it.
  • if you do not like working with open source technology.
  • if you do not like coding, scripting, templating.

If that sounds like you, let's talk.
