Vacancy: Data Engineer
In a nutshell the role of Data Engineer boils down to the following: they make Unilever data-intelligent. A unique opportunity for a candidate that specializes in both cloud engineering and data engineering within Azure’s data-stack. This winning combination is an absolute must-have for this role.
The Data Engineer goes above and beyond to make sure Unilever’s way of working is data-driven. This starts off with democratizing data. In other words: they make sure all data is available to all colleagues within Unilever. They keep the entire data structure running in the cloud, further develop it and improve the data-governance. Furthermore, the Data Engineer manages ten Azure domains which are part of Unilever’s global data platform, and expands on them.
Of course the Data Engineer isn’t completely on their own. Being part of a team of three more Data Engineers, they are heading many stakeholders and local contractors, as well as taking the lead over a few smaller teams both in Central Europe and Unilever Global. A dose of strong social skills are therefore unmissable.
The Data Engineer is able to maneuver easily within all layers of the organization. They aren’t blown away by the huge amount of stakeholders and are well able to get them on board when new plans and initiatives are unfolding. Or to be more specific: when it comes to their own. The Data Engineer is responsible for designing and implementing the most optimal data solutions that fits in well with Unilever’s ambition for growth.
The Data Engineer reports directly to Robin Rietveldt, Data & Analytics Lead Central Europe and works from their head office in Rotterdam or Brussels.
It’s good to know that the Data Engineer doesn’t need to know everything down to a t. Experience and eagerness to learn are most important assets to bring to this role, as well as the ambition to grow themselves into a leadership position in the future.
Unilever is working with Top of Minds to fill this vacancy.
