Amsterdam – We are looking for a data engineer to join the News Analytics Team, a brand new team that focuses on actionable analytics to help our journalists and improve news products.
The News Analytics Team works closely with thousands of journalists and editors of well known news brands such as Algemeen Dagblad, Het Laatste Nieuws, De Volkskrant, Trouw, Parool, De Morgen, and many more regional newspapers. These news brands are in the process of moving from an offline, print, world to an online world. The team helps them understand what works online and what does not, by providing reports, dashboards, actionable insights, and training. The team, for instance, provides insight into what the characteristics of successful articles are, what it means for a user to be satisfied with an article, and what kind of headlines work.
As a data engineer, your role will consist of making sure our data is available and reliable. Your responsibilities include maintaining and improving current data pipelines, defining and developing new ones but also helping data analysts and scientists in publishing their models to production. Your experience with Spark, managing AWS infrastructure (including Redshift, Kinesis) and DevOps techniques (Docker, CI/CD, automation) will definitely be appreciated as we scale our data operations.
You will work in close collaboration with other data engineers, data analysts, domain experts with a journalistic background and people from various other teams and levels throughout the organization. You will be co-located in Amsterdam with the cross functional News Analytics Team and will regularly meet with your data engineering peers in other locations, such as Antwerp.
