Does this sound like you?

You are an engineer with a pragmatic attitude. You feel the weight of responsibility that comes with taking systems into production. You easily switch between scripting and structured programming in typed languages. You understand cloud, provisioning and automation. And you know how to build robust systems.

At Xebia we build strong Data & AI practices to deliver value to our clients and their customers. In the past, our team of data professionals has predicted the daily demand for millions of loaves of bread, built advanced energy-saving algorithms to nationwide scale, and set up data innovation labs at large multinational corporations. We enjoy great success in making top companies AI-driven — just think of what more we can achieve when YOU join our team!

In Switzerland, our journey is just beginning, collaborating closely with the Xebia Data Community in the Netherlands and Poland. This presents a lot of opportunities for you to actively influence and shape our initiatives within an innovative team characterized by a flat hierarchy. You’ll have the chance to make a real impact and contribute to our growth from the ground up!

What your work as a Data Engineer Consultant will look like

As a Data Engineer Consultant, you will work on the backbone of the data infrastructure. You will help our clients to make the right design decisions and implement data pipelines. There is lots of data to store, many jobs to run and schedule, much configuration to be dealt with. You typically work at the client in teams that are a mix of people from Xebia Data and the client.

When you’re working on-site with a client you may come across something that is really difficult to solve. We’ve got your back as we at Xebia Data work as a team and will help you solve your problems, because everybody at Xebia Data is just a quick message away and ready to help at any time.

Who Are We Looking For?

The Data Engineer Consultant role is a senior position with a central role in our clients’ teams, and therefore we require at least 2 years of relevant professional experience. Having said that, we like to be amazed: so if you have done something outstanding during your studies, like contributing to open source projects or starting your own company, we encourage you to apply no matter what the level of your experience is.
