Big Data Consultant (Python / SQL / Pandas) @ Daltix Benelux

Antwerpen, Full time

Job description

Daltix is enabling retailers & suppliers to make decisions based on data rather than gut-feeling and for that it’s built up significant experience in how to collect data but also how to transform it in order to support decision making. To this end we’re looking for a big data consultant who’ll aid some of the biggest names in the retail industry (don’t take our word for it, check our website) in becoming truly data-driven :-)

This position is ideal if you want to apply your (big) data / Python expertise in a role where you really can make an impact !

You'll be part of our professional services squad which mixes IT, business, retail and project management to install and configure our products as well as train our clients’ teams. Once that’s done, we work hand-in-hand with them to adopt the product and generate optimal value with it.

Question: What is this job all about ? 

Answer: At Daltix we have a set of core data collection and processing systems that make up the cutting-edge Data Lakes and Data Warehouses which are the lifeblood of the Daltix data pipeline. However, we don't deliver data directly to our clients from these core systems. We work with them and apply our data know-how to get the most value out of our products as we can.

The role consists of various tasks such as:

  • Communicating with the customer & our data visualisation specialists to understand the customers needs and configure/adopt our products accordingly.
  • Ingesting (& modeling) data coming from our customers so that it can be combined with our data to yield more value.
  • Enable more complex analysis projects by doing some data analysis/exploration yourself as well as enabling our more specialised data/business analysts in more complex projects.

Being part of the professional services team you'll be working with very big retailers & retail suppliers and will learn how they look at data as well as the struggles they face in becoming data-driven.

On another level, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a set of seasoned professionals that have decades of experience in web scrapingdata sciencecloud architecture, and full stack development. Each area of the technical team is made up of members that have been there and done that in some of the hottest fields out there. This team combined with a bleeding edge stack build on AWS, Snowflake, Airflow, Looker and many others make this position one of potential, learning, and growth.

Question: How much experience do I need ?

Answer: 3-5+ years of experience with python/SQL with at least a few years of making your own design decisions. As the company has experienced significant growth and taken on several different clients in an ad-hoc way, there is (naturally) some technical debt to be paid down and this can only be done with an eye for careful design. If you've worked with designers or directly with business folks where it was required to translate requirements into code, your experience will be put to excellent use here.

Besides this we expect you to be a strong communicator who can clearly communicate with our customer success managers as well as with the upstream, technical core of the company. Furthermore you’ll need SQL skills to extract data from our Snowflake data warehouse as well as basic Pandas skills to transform & analyse data.

Having worked with Amazon Web Services, Airflow & Looker would be a big plus but are not a strict requirement provided you're a fast learner.

Question: Why is this good for someone looking to transition into working with data?

Answer: Daltix's systems are cutting edge, our stack is built on top of AWS and leverages Snowflake, one of the hottest cloud-based data warehouses right now. On top of that we’re currently setting up Looker, one of the most modern BI & dashboarding solutions right now.

All of this is used to make some of the biggest retailers & retail suppliers data-driven, think Unilever, Makro, Lidl. You’ll be directly helping them in this transition.

As you may not have significant experience in Data Engineering but are interested in taking the first step, there is no better way to do this than to use these systems. You'll work directly with Daltix's very small and elite team learning how all of this is done in a way that could lead naturally to a transition into working with these systems yourself.

Question: What is "unique" about this position?

Answer: It is very rare for positions like this to arise and it will be a chance for you to make a huge difference in the company while at the same time taking a big step toward a career transition to being a Data Engineer. This startup is in a stage where product-market fit is starting to arise and a transition from super-agile and ad-hoc solutions must start to make way for more carefully designed and mature solutions. You can be the architect of this.

You'll also be working with very big retailers & retail suppliers and will learn how they look at data as well as the struggles they face in becoming data-driven.

On another level, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a set of seasoned professionals that have decades of experience in web scraping, data science, cloud architecture, and full stack development.
