Are you an experienced Data Engineer with a passion for advanced technology and do you want to contribute to the energy transition? Then Energy Essentials, our client, is looking for you! In this role, you will work with developers and data engineers to advance a state-of-the-art web-based enterprise.

Are you ready to join the team at Energy Essentials and help build the future?

What are you going to do?

As a Data Engineer at Energy Essentials, you will work on implementations on our data platform for our clients. This contributes to delivering real-time insights via dashboards to portfolio managers, by transforming events in the form of Apache Kafka messages, enriching them (using Apache Flink), and storing them in a real-time OLAP database (Apache Druid). You will create workflows for aggregating asset data, which, together with forecasts and optimization models, should lead to the automated management of assets and bidding on energy markets. You will work in sprints, have daily stand-ups, regular design meetings, and customer contact.

Our offer

Our client offers you excellent primary and secondary employment conditions! Think of collective pension, travel cost allowance, and a bonus scheme. You will work daily with smart solutions and the latest technologies. Moreover, you can participate in sufficient training in a full-time job.

In short, it is a great opportunity to grow your career!

What we ask from you

As a Data Engineer at Energy Essentials, you play a crucial role in implementing and optimizing data processes. You have experience with Kubernetes, Docker, Python, and Git, and you are familiar with ETL pipelines, APIs, Apache Kafka, and distributed processing. Experience with cloud environments is essential, preferably Azure. You will work on designing, building, and maintaining data pipelines and systems that process and analyze large amounts of data. You can work independently and are critical. Innovation and pragmatism are natural to you: you enjoy experimenting with new technologies and find simple, to-the-point solutions without over-engineering. If you have at least three years of experience and have a passion for working with cutting-edge technologies, then this is something for you!
