The job & what you’d be working on
We are looking for Data Engineers who have a passion for using data to create better business results. You'll have an important role in helping our customers grow their businesses, by using your skills as a data engineering professional. In practice, this might happen through data warehousing, data integrations, and building data pipelines.
You would be working in close cooperation with other digital sales specialists who work on the other end of the pipeline, using the data that you provide to make sales happen.
We can see a clear rise in the demand for the ability to build data-related infrastructure, which also translates into exciting growth opportunities for you. Columbia Road is a great place to acquire broad expertise in various technologies and business areas.
We enjoy working hands-on with our clients to provide advanced solutions, and we hope you do, too. We appreciate ambition and results-orientation in everything we do, but we like to have fun as well.
Professional benefits for you:
Combining your knowledge and interest in data engineering and measurable business impact
A high-impact role as a trusted advisor to important stakeholders - your contribution will create a significant impact on the client’s success
Working directly with your client - no middle management involved
A clear focus on digital sales, in both B2B and B2C
You'll have the best people to work with and learn from in an organisation with minimal hierarchy
A diverse and inclusive workplace
Participating in account management and framing our sales offering, should you be interested
Opportunities to join competency specific task forces, such as HR, recruitment, and competency development, depending on your career goals
An analytical mindset, to help our clients to understand their data requirements
Strong business mindset and willingness to create a measurable business impact with data
Experience in building, deploying and orchestrating ETL / ELT services in a cloud environment (e.g. Azure, AWS, GCP)
Knowledge of SQL databases and data warehousing (e.g. PostgreSQL, AWS Redshift, Azure Synapse)
Professional proficiency in English
Compensation 54 000 - 90 000 €/year depending on your professional skillset and the level of seniority.
Experience with data mining, data modelling, or data governance
Knowledge of data visualisation tooling (e.g. Tableau or similar)
Experience within a digital sales context and with digital marketing and sales solutions like the data structures of the most commonly used marketing and ecommerce platforms
Knowledge of web-based software systems (microservice systems, REST APIs etc.)
Make sure you showcase your experience and knowledge as clearly as possible in your application, CV, and possible attachments. We value examples and results of your previous projects, and we'd love to know what kinds of results you have achieved, and what you did to achieve them.
The recruitment process usually has 1-3 steps during which we get to know who you are and what motivates you. You will learn more about Columbia Road and get to meet different people from our company. You'll have the opportunity to present highlights from your career and tell us about your skills, roles, and learnings.
We’re committed to creating a good match between you and our organisation, and want to spend time to get it right. Sometimes, an assignment might be given to you to complete between interviews.
When we’re done with the face-to-face discussions, we’ll contact the people you have chosen as references.
We hope to hear from you soon!
