Cloud Engineer - BE

Job description

Are you looking to grow as a cloud engineer, completing your skills through dedicated learning and experience as you assist clients in the business transformation of a lifetime? 


At Crunch Analytics, we -especially- help EU retail and e-commerce teams at Heineken, G-Star, Unilin, Roompot, or others to embrace big data & AI techniques by introducing AI-driven solutions that fundamentally change how these organizations create value.  


As a Cloud Engineer, you become an indispensable specialist in one of our Data & AI Teams, working shoulder to shoulder with Data Scientists and Project Owners. A craftsman -really - that sketches and shapes the required cloud infrastructure to ensure a smooth way of working. Be it through the construction of robust ETL/ELT pipelines, data warehouses & star schemas, or the expansion of our Kubernetes-driven internal platform.


In your role, you will be able to free your inner MacGyver, applying your eye for detail, quirky humor, and jaw-dropping resourcefulness.



Job requirements

🚀 What will be part of your responsibilities?


  • Architect data solutions that integrate with an existing technology stack of the customer;
  • Combine and centralize data from multiple data sources;
  • Construct robust ETL/ELT pipelines;
  • Design data warehouses and star schemas, fit for further reporting or advanced analytics;
  • Setup monitoring and alerting systems
  • Advise data scientists and customers on best practices
  • Optimize and expand our internal tooling


🐱‍🚀 What skills are required or can be perfected on the job?


We are looking for a true DevOps evangelist with a BS or MS in Computer Science or equivalent relevant experience:

  • who has mastered Python and SQL;
  • who is well-aware of essential software engineering principles;
  • knows their way around a typical Unix environment;
  • has experience with CI/CD and testing;
  • who is familiar with at least one major cloud vendor (Google Cloud, Azure, or Amazon);
  • who can use Docker proficiently to deliver software quickly.
  • and who has had a first experience with Kubernetes, open-source frameworks such as Airflow or Apache Beam, and/or big data technologies such as Hadoop and Spark.


But most importantly, each candidate should be a team player, able to translate business requirements into a technical solution, making use of his eagerness and on-point communication skills both in English and Dutch. 


🎁 Our offer


First off, you will become part of a steadily growing team of people keen on applying the latest technologies and techniques in the fields of data science, machine learning & AI. You will work in a vibrant, innovation-loving environment with the proper dash of geekiness and love for board games.


You will be able to work both at the office or home. Our offices in Ghent, Antwerp, and Rotterdam are easy to reach, located in a colorful neighborhood of each city center, close to a vast array of after-work shenanigans.


We provide an attractive salary package stuffed with additional benefits such as an (optional) company car & fuel card, hospitalization insurance, state-of-the-art laptop, smartphone, and other gear.


We help you to get around either by car, train, and/or e-bike. It's yours to choose.


We put a lot of time and effort into your personal growth and development, both as a technician and business professional. We provide dedicated feedback and coaching sessions to help you walk the career path you envisage. Expect your own talent development roadmap and the opportunity to showcase your knowledge to a broader engineering community.

On top of that, we do team trips, planned events, ad-hoc events, anything really to ensure you shine within a thriving team.


Up for the challenge?


Here is how we move forward. After applying, we'll screen your resume and may invite you for a phone interview. A job-specific challenge and presentation later, you could be the next cloud engineer to represent our team!
