Data Engineer

Who are you?

We are looking for a data engineer who likes to create data-driven software and architectures in the Cloud. You are familiar with back-end programming languages such as Java, Scala or Python. Knowledge of Cloud technologies is a plus, a keen interest in them is a must.

You’ll be working with Big Data technologies like Spark and Kafka, while implementing data services in Azure or AWS. Your most important skill is communication, both with clients and with team members. We’re looking for people who have the capabilities to, in due time, take the lead in projects and are responsible for project delivery.

What can we offer you?

You will work in a growing company with plenty of opportunities for self-growth and for learning new skills. You make up your career and we will guide you! Next to this, you will be able to work on the most innovative projects close to home.

We stay away from body shopping and try to make sure that we work for our clients in teams of multiple InfoFarmers. We don’t believe in dropping you for several years at a client without any connection with your colleagues, but strongly encourage working together at one of our offices. Nevertheless, some time at the client’s office is still necessary in order to communicate clearly and thoroughly.

To give you a better understanding on what type of profile we are looking for, we want you to meet one of your future colleagues.

Meet Kobe

A data engineer who loves computers and programming. I am always excited to analyse issues and dive into technical rabbit holes. I design and implement data solutions that directly benefit the business. As a data engineer, I am proficient in developing cloud-based solutions that are both scalable and secure.

I’m also passionate about AI and micro-robotics. I always look for ways to incorporate these technologies into my day-to-day & projects to drive innovation and efficiency. If there is one thing I enjoy more than computers, it is working with people. I like to work in different teams or fields. I also enjoy organising knowledge-sharing sessions & coaching colleagues.

When I am not working, I like to spend my time on passive investing, reading sci-fi books and volunteer work.
