What does your day look like as a Data Engineer at Digital Power?

You kickstart your day with a cup of coffee and check your emails. At 10:00 a.m., you have a scheduled stand-up with the team. You enthusiastically talk about the new feature you're currently working on for the client. Everyone is engaged and shares ideas to make it even better.

After that, you proceed with the development of the feature. Throughout the day, you work closely with your colleagues, leveraging each other's expertise to achieve the best outcome.

In the afternoon, you take a well-deserved break. You walk your dog and enjoy a delightful lunch. This gives you the energy you need to carry on with enthusiasm for the rest of the day.

By the end of the afternoon, the feature you've been working on is complete. To ensure everything is thoroughly checked, you create a pull request. You know that your data engineer colleagues will review it and suggest any improvements.

Where you work each week is a combination of being on-site at the client's premises, working from home, and, of course, an enjoyable day at one of our offices in Amsterdam and Den Bosch. You prefer to travel by public transport: great sustainability, flexibility and free for you, even on days you are not working. Is a (temporary) car more convenient for you? In consultation, many options are possible.

Organise your working week in a way that suits you. As long as you deliver excellent work, your clients are satisfied and your colleagues can rely on you, we are happy and proud to have you as our colleague!

Central data storage with a new data infrastructure

Dedimo is a collaboration of five mental healthcare initiatives. In order to continuously enhance the quality of their care, they organize internal processes more efficiently. Therefore, they use perceptions from the data that is internally available. Previously, they acquired the data themselves from different source systems with ad hoc scripts. They requested our help to make this process more robust, efficient and to further professionalise it. They asked us to facilitate the central storage of their data, located in a cloud data warehouse. The goal was to set up the data infrastructure within this environment, since they were already used to working with Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

How do I become a Data Engineer?

A few years ago, the job title didn't even exist: Data Engineer. Nowadays, there is a high demand for Data Engineers. Almost every organisation consciously collects data, and the realisation that this must be done in a structured way is growing. If the data you collect is not well organised and correct, you cannot use it as input for making good decisions. Data Engineers build infrastructures that process data. Therefore, they are indispensable to organisations that want to collect and apply their data in a structured way.
