Interested in this opening?

This is an exciting opportunity to work as Group Data Engineer for BME, an ambitious and challenging organization, fact and data based driven. People make the difference and talents that work together in effective teams are the basis for success.

BME Group has embarked on a journey to enhance our digital capabilities. We are not only rapidly getting more data; data also becomes increasingly important. Simultaneously, data complexity increases due to the creation of cross-OpCo data sets.

The Group Digital Team is looking for you to revise and improve the governance, management and quality of data. Working together with country teams on the ground (for example sales, IT, marketing) and functional stakeholders at the Amsterdam head office.

The adventure

You, as the Group Data Engineer will be responsible for developing data models, programming APIs and building data pipelines. You will collaborate closely with IT, who are implementing the group data lake. You design your data structure smartly: sufficiently general to be usable throughout the Group, sufficiently flexible for specific variables per country – think in terms of VAT rates – or for future developments in the product range, for example.

You are in fact establishing the basis for our transition to a truly data-driven organization. Both contextually and in the mindset. And yes: that brings with it great responsibility.

  • Understanding the “give and take” relationship that one has with local, functional and group/HQ stakeholders.
