Does this sound like you?

Do you see the bigger picture when teams and organizations struggle with data? Are you eager to fix problems in a structural way? Maybe you should join our Data Management team and help change this industry for the better. Data management isn’t just about GDPR compliance, manual administration or DPO’s questioning teams about their data usage. It’s about empowering data users, streamlining processes, and leveraging cutting-edge tools to greatly improve the way organizations handle data. Imagine being at the forefront of this transformation!

At Xebia Data, we empower organizations to harness the full potential of Data and AI. Picture yourself as part of a team that has a technical edge and knows what it’s like to work in the trenches. We’ve been there experiencing top-down data management efforts and their failures and we’re ready to make a real difference. If you have experience implementing data management solutions and a burning passion for the field, we’re looking for you.

How you will help

Data Management is not just about data; it’s about people, processes, and technology coming together to drive real change. There is no magical tool that will fix your data management problems when users are not engaged or educated. Nor can data management processes be executed properly using Excel; automation and user-friendly tooling are strong enablers that can make a significant difference.

We’re not looking for a “perfect” candidate who has extensive experience in all three aspects, because we know perfection is a rare find. What we want is someone who is passionate about data management and has experience in at least one of these aspects. However a genuine interest in the other aspects is just as vital. It’s about gaining a holistic understanding of Data Management and its multifaceted nature.

We have already enjoyed great success in making the top companies reaching Data Management successes. The dot on the horizon is to get a companywide understanding of the data they have, and improve how they manage, use, share and control that data. To get there however we follow a use-case driven approach, where each use case delivered contributes to the bigger picture in a tangible way. Just think of what more we can achieve when YOU join our team!

What you will do to make organizations AI-driven as a Data Management expert:

As a Data Management expert, you will play a crucial role in making organizations AI-driven. You will collaborate with diverse stakeholders to develop and implement effective data management strategies that align with clients’ goals. Your expertise will be vocalized as you present and explain these strategies to our clients in various settings.

Additionally, you will evaluate and recommend data management tools and technologies that enhance data quality, lineage, cataloging, and security. Your guidance will be instrumental in developing and implementing data governance frameworks, policies, and standards to ensure consistent and compliant data management practices.

To improve efficiency, data quality, and governance, you will assess, design, and optimize data management processes, workflows, and policies. As a leader, you will also spearhead change management initiatives to support clients in adopting data-driven decision-making and fostering a data-centric culture.

Lastly, you will serve as a trusted advisor to clients, providing insights on data management best practices, industry trends, emerging technologies, and organizational transformation. Your expertise will be invaluable in helping organizations become AI-driven.

We’re not in a rush to hire just anyone; we’re looking for the right person to join our team. If you have any time constraints, let Valentina know during your initial chat, and she’ll factor that into the process. Apart from this, we know we are not perfect, although we will always strive to be the best in all we do. So, we understand that you may not tick all the boxes either. If you’re interested in the role and feel you can be successful, go ahead and apply! We review every CV and personal introduction we receive, and we’ll take it from there.
