Senior Data Engineer (m/f/div)
For our office in Berlin – Friedrichshain we are looking for a Senior Data Engineer (m/f/div) who likes to work in cross-functional teams optimizing our clients’ ecommerce setups and data warehousing solutions.
As a Senior Data Engineer (m/f/div) you complement our development team with engineering expertise to build data solutions according to cloud computing best-practices. You consult on technical topics both internally and at clients. You join our team of experts for web/app tracking, data engineering and data warehousing to scope, sell and execute the implementation of elegant big data solutions. You work closely with our business consultants and project managers to shape projects which are feasible in time and budget. You need to embrace agile methodology, think iteratively and propose workable steps on the way to the final setup. Besides client work, you support the development of internal projects and re-structure code for repeated and speedy deployment. Share your knowledge within our team and exchange with other data engineering teams at Dept. You’ll frequently be asked to explain the what and why of cloud-based solutions to both technical and non-technical audiences.
Our Data & Intelligence department at Dept is focused on data with a strong bias towards data engineering, large data analysis, web tracking and data activation using data science. Building customized data warehouse solutions in the cloud, and helping our customers to centralize their tracking and marketing data. One of the key features of our business is the creation of customized data models tailored to the specific business model of our customers. On-the-go, we advise on the customer's tool and tech stack, set up or optimize web/app tracking, assist with custom ETL solutions and activate the data through reporting or machine learning use cases.
You will work in a vibrant environment with clever minds who work for a variety of large global clients. Yes, we are eager to hire the most talented experts in the game but we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn, inspires, strives towards a better world, takes the stage, a futurist at heart, and someone who will toast to a successful week with us.
