How do you make our customers happy?
‘Team 5Jr’ may not be the snappiest name we ever came up with, but our Business Intelligence and operational reporting specialists are instrumental in providing logistics stakeholders with important, data-driven insights. Insights that allow them to streamline the complex warehousing processes in our BREAAM award-winning fulfillment center. How that benefits our 9,5 million customers? By assuring that their orders are picked and delivered accurately and with optimum efficiency!
The Greatest Challenge
Our on-premise Oracle BI environment has served us well, but all good things come to an end. Actually, all the time… whenever we find a better solution. In this case we’re transitioning to the cloud. This is a major endeavor, given that speed and reliability are of the essence. Our BI reports ‘fuel’ the warehousing operation, and the margins for error are infinitesimally small.
Your responsibilities as our Business Intelligence Engineer Logistics
Together with your colleagues, you are at the helm of ‘project cloud’. We already did some of the (pardon the pun) groundwork, e.g. by setting up the infrastructure which will allow us to migrate the data to BigQuery. It’s up to you to help us take the next (giant) steps, so the transition feels more like a hot air balloon ascending than a fighter jet taking off. A challenging responsibility, because we need our new solution to be both robust and fast from the get-go. How can we create an extremely stable (near) real-time data stream? Which front end solutions do we want to complement our BigQuery environment? As our BigQuery Specialist Bol.com Fulfillment Center, you will formulate the answers. Whilst also allowing (scalability is key) for future growth, because our fulfillment center is being expanded as we speak.
Attractive: because our insights are instrumental to strategic decision-making processes, the position has a lot of impact. If your team succeeds, our logistics become future-proofed.
Why you can make the difference?
Because you can help us mature the project, which is currently still in its infancy stages. There is so much to do! And not just on an operational level, because we also expect you to contribute to a strong vision on data and BI in the cloud. Something you are naturally passionate about! Experience with Google Cloud (Kubernetes & Dataflow, CI/CD, Monitoring/Alerting), and
real-time (large scale!) data migrations, would be an asset and an extra reason to invite you along for our journey to the cloud.
3 reasons why this is(n’t) for you
- Because you have a strong vision on data and BI in Google Cloud
- Because BigQuery data migrations (e.g. through Airflow) are part of your skill set
- Because you know how to implement CI/CD, monitoring and alerting in the cloud
- Because you have zero knowledge of BI, SQL and data modeling
- Because you hate Java / Python with a passion
- Because you prefer to work solo; you’re not into that whole teamwork thing
