Data analytics engineer

Who you will work with

You will join us in Antwerp to work one or more days per week from our office and directly with our clients.

As data analytics engineer, you will help our clients with modelling and providing clean data to grow, monitor and improve their business. Alongside your colleagues at Searching Pi, you will work with architects, data engineers, data scientists and business experts at our clients.

What you will do

You will work alone or in a team to transform raw data into a shape ready to solve a client’s problem or challenge. You will help clients make tangible improvements and realise their growth, monitoring or improvement objectives.

As a data analytics engineer, you will work with clients to understand the problem they are trying to solve and the data that is required. When you understand what needs to be done, you come up with the best way to deliver a well-defined, tested, and documented data set.

To deliver such a high quality data, you can understand the current data stack at our clients. If necessary, you set up platforms to ingest and store data. You write complex data transformations in SQL and keep data tidy. When preparing data, you implement best practices in version control, testing, and continuous integration.

Finally, you test and document the data set, and present it to customers so they can unleash their BI tools or data algorithms. If needed, you train the client to be able to maintain the data pipeline that you set up.

When working in a team, you are an outspoken team member who makes suggestions on how to deliver more data sets at a higher quality in a shorter amount of time.

About you

We are looking for an analytics engineer with a strong interest in both writing code and talking to customers. You have at least 2 years experience in a professional setting and have worked in a team to transform data.

Our clients use different data platforms and technologies. You are a master in SQL, can code in Python and have ingested and served data in one stack. If you have experience doing so using a cloud platform, that is a bonus.

Typical problems that you care about are:

  • Can I build a table that allows to answer multiple business questions?
  • What do I need to give to users so they can effortlessly use the data?
  • Can I be notified of a problem in the data before the business finds out?
  • How can I improve the quality of my data from the start rather than at the end?

As π counts many numbers, you share our passion to search for better ways to get high quality data faster to customers.

You must be a fast learner since you do not only have to understand our customers’ platforms, but also suggest current industry best practices. As part of a team, you should be comfortable to present new techniques.

Curious, kind and independent individuals thrive at Searching Pi. Individuals who can liaise with a client’s problems and define their own way to get to a solution. Who can work independently.

What you can expect

Searching Pi is a boutique data consultancy, young, but based on the 20+ years experience of our founders who have launched management, technology and data consultancy practices. Over the last 20 years, we have worked with 50 customers in 10 different industries and we are eager to continue to do so.

As part of a growing team, you will have an opportunity to define your own expertise or become the lead in a particular data stack. If you just want to solve challenges, that is also fine.

You can expect a mindful onboarding with time to get acquainted and get productive. You can expect a personal coach that will help achieve your professional ambitions.

As the data and AI space is evolving so rapidly, you can expect to get the time to learn from likeminded individuals, some who even teach at university.

We value exceptional work and we are committed, conscientious workers.
