Data Engineer

Job description

Data cruncher, analyst, engineer, or dbt enthusiast - we don’t think it’s in the name; it’s what you want to achieve that counts! We’re Zivver - maybe you’ve heard of us? We're building a truly smart platform that leads the market in digital security, empowering organizations to protect their sensitive digital communications effortlessly. We’re looking for a Data Engineer to join our growing team and be the intersection between engineering and data. 

As our new data engineer, you will enable the teams to deliver analytical insights which drive our decisions and support in the development of our data products. To do this, you’ll build data pipelines to fuel our data warehouse and applications. Working closely with the infrastructure team, you’ll enrich and maintain our data infrastructure using the latest technologies and following engineering best practices. Additionally, you’ll collaborate with engineering to ensure that high quality data is collected and used as the foundation for data-intensive features. Your work forms the foundation upon which a data cathedral is built.  

This isn’t a role which requires only your analytical skills; we’re a tight bunch, so we’re on the look out for a team player who likes to challenge us with the goal of making them and others in the business successful.

Hot take

  • Data levels all arguments

  • Curious George would be your alter ego - always looking to try out new things

What will you do?

  • Build and maintain scalable data pipelines fueling our data warehouse and product

  • Improve, enrich and maintain our data infrastructure to support Zivver’s growth

  • Work with the engineering team to build out our Snowplow based data collection

  • Create interfaces to help product teams build data-intensive features


  • An exciting, fast-growing, energetic environment

  • International diverse team with over 27 nationalities - and yes, we offer Dutch classes too!

  • HQ in Amsterdam where you’re able to work a few days a week and full home office support to make sure you’re all set

  • Working from Bali, the US or Spain? Any place, anywhere: we fully support temporary working from X

  • Part of the pie: we’ve got a stock option plan

  • At least €1.000,- per year on personal development budget

  • All the relocation benefits you need for a fresh start

  • Don’t worry about tomorrow: we’ve got you covered with a pension plan


  • Bsc. or Msc. degree in computer science or something even more complicated.

  • Strong SQL and NoSQL skills.

  • Solid experience with Python.

  • Experience with DevOps practices (CI/CD, deployments, AWS infrastructure, GitLab).

  • Solid experience with Terraform.

  • Experience with big data frameworks such as Spark would be a plus

  • Experience with building data products.

  • And preferably:
    • Experience with Snowplow, Snowflake or dbt.

    • Experience with the JVM ecosystem in general and Scala in particular.

    • An understanding of data warehouse architecture.

    • A fair understanding of statistics and machine learning.

  • You are looking to grow every day by being curious and coachable.

  • You are pragmatic: nothing needs to be perfect from day one (or day zero?).

  • You are a strong collaborator: straightforward and direct, but respectful with a big smile

If you’re still reading and excited about this role, we welcome your application even if you think you don’t meet all the requirements. We understand that no candidate is perfect, and would love to hear your story.
