As a Data Engineer at WBAA you will be responsible for the data architecture and infrastructure of a project together with your colleagues. This involves the ingestion, scalable processing and efficiently storing of data as well as the running of machine learning models and setting up of a full data analysis pipeline.
Your passion is to work with the latest and greatest technologies that make working with large amounts of data easy, youre pro-active in keeping yourself up to date and are always searching for new ways to discover new technologies. You also enjoy laying the architectural foundations for the things youre working on. You combine both thinking of the future and a hands on, right now attitude. You will work in a team with highly skilled people and enjoy a creative atmosphere where trying things out is encouraged.
A day in the life of a Data Engineer
As a Data Engineer you are the single most important part of the team. Without your work, nothing moves, data sits idle and useless in a DB or even worse: in excel sheets. You are the one combining these sources in real-time, distributed systems to handle large amounts of data loads in no-time. Data scientists, analysts, business users, CEOs are continuously praising you, thanking you, worshipping you.
Thats when you wake up to go to work. After your morning coffee you sit with data scientists to find the best way to get their models to run in production, leading the way in how to aggregate the data and process it efficiently for each model. You talk to the business to ingest new sources, cleaning and preparing the data and writing the code that connect it to your application. After a lunch break with colleagues you think of a new technology youd like to try out. You start investigating and write it up for the next experimentation day. At the end of the afternoon you finalize some comments colleagues had on your latest blog post or start building your presentation for the next conference youre presenting at. As a Data Engineer working at WBAA, youll never get bored with many experienced and skilled engineers around you, the freedom to innovate and to not only use open source tooling, but also contribute and teach about them.
