Big Data Consultant [Belgium]

Job description

Daltix is enabling retailers & suppliers to make decisions based on data rather than gut-feeling and for that it’s built up significant experience in how to collect data but also how to transform it in order to support decision making. To this end we’re looking for a big data consultant who’ll aid some of the biggest names in the industry (don’t take our word for it, check our website) in becoming truly data-driven.

This position is ideal for people who want to apply their (big) data expertise in a very impactful customer facing role.

You'll be part of our professional services squad which mixes IT, business, retail and project management to install and configure our products as well as train our clients’ teams. Once that’s done, we work hand-in-hand with them to adopt the product and generate optimal value with it.

About the role

At Daltix we have a set of core data collection and processing systems that make up the cutting-edge Data Lakes and Data Warehouses which are the lifeblood of the Daltix data pipeline. However, we don't deliver data directly to our clients from these core systems. We work with them and apply our data know-how to get the most value out of our products as we can.


The role consists of various tasks such as:

  • Communicating with the customer & our data visualisation specialists to understand the customers needs and configure/adopt our products accordingly.
  • Ingesting (& modeling) data coming from our customers so that it can be combined with our data to yield more value.
  • Enable more complex analysis projects by doing some data analysis/exploration yourself as well as enabling our more specialised data/business analysts in more complex projects.

Being part of the professional services team you'll be working with very big retailers & retail suppliers and will learn how they look at data as well as the struggles they face in becoming data-driven.

On another level, you’ll have the opportunity to work with a set of seasoned professionals that have decades of experience in web scraping, data science, cloud architecture, and full stack development. Each area of the technical team is made up of members that have been there and done that in some of the hottest fields out there. This team combined with a bleeding edge stack build on AWS, Snowflake, Airflow, Looker and many others make this position one of potential, learning, and growth.

What do we offer

  • We are a young, entrepreneurial and fast-growing company; you will have the unique opportunity to shape our future and have a positive impact on our clients’ business
  • Be part of an interesting and dynamic start-up and enjoy the scaling process.
  • You will be offered a competitive wage in a talented, international team of top-notch experts
  • Flexible work arrangements with a lot of autonomy in what you do and where you do it - we trust you to know your schedule and work when you feel most productive
  • You will be able to participate in relevant training to stay at the top of your field. Be part of an interesting and dynamic start-up and enjoy the scaling process.
  • An open company culture where we play as hard as we work
  • Health Insurance coverage
  • Occasional drinks and team events
  • You’ll get the chance to meet and work with industry professionals and help lift the company to the next level

Job requirements

We expect you to be a strong communicator who can clearly communicate with our customer success managers as well as with the engineering part of the company. Furthermore you’ll need SQL skills to extract data from our Snowflake data warehouse as well as Python & pandas skills to transform & analyse data.

Having worked with Amazon Web Services, Airflow & Looker would be a big plus but are not a strict requirement provided you're a fast learner.
