As part of Veepee’s data organisation, the data engineering team’s mission is to build the technical foundation that will support the whole organisation to produce data to and consume data from a new, central data lake, to supply data to external parties, to connect data to BI and analytics tools used by business teams and to bring complex and state-of-the-art machine learning models in production.

At a first stage, your responsibility will be to help building the next datalake and data warehouse for the veepee group. Using both streaming and batch ingestion strategies, the goal is to build ingestion pipelines to our Google BigQuery based datalake using modern technologies like Apache beam (on Google Dataflow), Google PubSub, Kafka connect,... In a later stage, opportunities will come to develop microservices (deployed using kubernetes) to serve data from the datalake or to expose machine learning models’ predictions to customer-facing products.

    • Keep improving your technical knowledge and expertise by attending conferences, contributing to open-source projects (Apache Beam, Apache Airflow), organising and attending meetups,...
    • Be part of a larger tech organisation (vpTech) that is responsible for building one of the biggest e-commerce platforms in Europe.
    • Be part of a team that goes loco from time to time, likes BBQ (even vegetarian), is eager to learn and build for the future
