How you will make an impact as a Data Engineer

There are many ways for you to get involved:


As a Data Engineer, you will be part of a cross-functional team or a practice team that enables data engineering skills and capabilities across a whole domain. Being an enthusiast in data engineering, with a strong DevSecOps mindset, you will work with your team to deliver the best solutions to our customer’s needs and take over full responsibility for its data flows, from design to operation. You care diligently about the quality of your work, including proper documentation and security aspects.


You will use your deep technical skills to work closely with your colleagues to ensure an optimal data delivery architecture is consistent throughout ongoing projects. You will work on data collection, data pipelines, data delivery to other systems and building a strong core data warehouse. Furthermore, you are supporting your fellow Data Analysts and Data Scientists on data engineering tasks and work as a team to deliver data driven solutions.


You will need to verbalise your thoughts and ideas and take the initiative to translate ideas into outcomes. Together with the domain or common architects, as well as the group enabler teams, you also will research, evaluate and test new approaches, processes and tools and help teams to use them effectively. You will actively contribute to communities of practice, including collaboration in shared initiatives.


You will work as part of an international, multi-cultural team. You challenge constructively and have high expectations of yourself and others. You always drive for technical excellence, ownership and self-organisation at team and personal level.  You love to learn and acquire new skills and keep up to date with latest developments in your focus areas.
