We’ve come a long way since our start-up roots back in the days of dial-up internet (remember that?). But our commitment to staying ahead of the game with data analysis has remained constant. And that’s why we need you…

All about the role:

  • Manage data infrastructure of the logistics department
  • Collect and transform unstructured data from different sources to structured output, be it columnar data store, flat or Parquet/ORC files, NoSQL, or streams.

  • Create reusable, maintainable, scalable (vertical, horizontal) integrations/services using a cutting-edge hybrid cloud infrastructure
  • Design and build new ETL/ELT and manage existing logistics data pipeline/ETL (batch and real-time data)
  • Set up monitoring to ensure continuous high data quality
  • Support performance tuning of existing tables and our Data Analysts in optimising queries
  • Support Data Scientists in productionising their ML models
  • Collaborate excellently with the team and stakeholders in agile iterative processes

Can you deliver…

  • You are experienced in SQL and one or several programming languages – preferably Python
  • You are preferably experienced in retrieving external data (scraping/ through API)
  • You have extensive and proven professional experience handling big data pipelines, data warehouses, or other (preferably distributed) data stores.

  • You are comfortable with handling streaming data and have proven experience in designing and implementing real-time pipelines (Required)
  • Experience with microservices architecture, containerization, and k8s is preferred
  • You are familiar with parsing structured and unstructured data and creation of ETL pipelines for data warehousing
  • You have knowledge about how to model data and processes, how to test data, how to implement proper logging, and how to troubleshoot issues swiftly.
  • You do not have to wait for a DevOps engineer to hand you servers and would rather be able to deploy services on the cloud using Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment
  • You are proficient in written and spoken English

Lieferando is an application (web & mobile) that allows you to order food at restaurants online. Lieferando.de is part of Takeaway.com. Takeaway.com is the leading food-order site in continental Europe. It all began at a party in 2000, when Jitse Groen, who was still a student at the time, came up with the idea for a website after he discovered that he could not use the Internet to order food easily. He registered the domain name under 'Thuisbezorgd.nl'​ the very next day. Today, we process millions of orders a month. Jitse Groen being the CEO. We operate in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Bulgaria, Romania and Israel. Takeaway.com is a dynamic and vibrant company that is still growing rapidly. Each day, dozens of changes occur that call for an agile response. This means quickly changing gears between the various offices and departments. A great deal of effort is made every day not only to maintain our position in the various countries, but also to reinforce it. In addition to working hard, we also know the importance of socializing, having a laugh and sharing a drink. Would you like to be a part of the Takeaway.com team and make a difference?
