WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

Are you a data enthusiast with strong experience in data warehousing? Do you have a practical mindset and strong attention to detail? Are you eager for an opportunity of learning more about performance-based marketing and contribute to the growth of our scale up company? If so, we have the perfect job opportunity for you.

As a Data Warehouse Specialist, you will work with our current data warehouse in Microsoft SQL Server together with our internal ETL tool. Your main challenge will be improving and developing a better Data Warehousing and BI solution using modern cloud-based technologies. You will get the freedom to assess our current infrastructure, evaluate different tools available (whether it is Azure or Amazon or any other tool) and proceed with the best solution that suits the business need. We always try to use the right tool for the right job and are open for new technologies. You will use your expertise and selected tools to create new database architectures, build the ETL processes, and set up the infrastructure (in the cloud).

No week will be the same, because you are working on many different projects. One day you are setting up a cloud infrastructure, the other you are developing some new functionalities in SQL and another you’re learning about new technology like Chef, Ansible or Puppet. You’re the go-to person when a colleague or client has a tech-related problem or question, which you love to help and explain, spread the tech enthusiasm.

  • Keep up to date with the developments in the source systems and recommend opportunities for an enhanced Data Warehouse.

Requirements

  • Bachelor or master’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or any related field of study.
  • 4+ years of experience as a data warehouse specialist or equivalent position, working with Business Intelligence solutions, data integrations and ETL pipelines.
  • Expert level on data warehousing and data modelling.

  • Self-motivated and comfortable operating in a rapidly changing environment.
  • Great attention to detail.
  • You see the opportunity in situations where others would see a setback.
