Full time




Our client is the digital arm of a 100 year old company in the food supply chain sector. They are building a variety of Digital B2B and B2C software solutions to help their clients to be able to feed our vastly growing population more efficiently.

Although the mother company is 100 years old, their digital arm functions like a startup and as such they are constantly learning and developing. They have their own data platform which is pooling in all the data from their global operations (data from 10 different software products), but it is not very user friendly and well structured at the moment. They see Data and Data Engineering as a high priority so now they are building a dedicated Data Engineering team in Berlin. You would be the sole Data Engineer in the team at the moment which will give you freehand in deciding how to go about structuring and curating data and reshaping the foundations of data engineering for them. You will also play instrumental role in making their data platform better, more usable and innovative going forward.
