Python Data Engineer

  • Location Groenlo
  • Business unit Healthcare

As a Data Engineer at Nedap Healthcare, you will build a data platform that gives our account managers, developers and customers insight into the use of our software. How quickly are new features adopted? Which workflows could be more user-friendly? Which components are not yet used by a customer? These are a few examples of data-driven insights that allow us to improve our products and better support our customers. 

The data platform is the central place where product usage data is collected, cleansed, analysed and visualised. This involves data from hundreds of thousands of users, a wide variety of customers and a broad product portfolio. 

We build and maintain this platform in-house (no cloud providers). In the future, we also want to use this platform to enable machine learning pipelines. 

The platform is still at an early stage. There is a basic platform running that has proven its value, but we are now ready for the next step. We are looking for a scalable, easy-to-maintain solution. So you're not starting from scratch, but you still have plenty of room and flexibility to build the architecture you think is best. 

Your team

You will be working in a small new team and will also be part of the Data Science guild. These are colleagues with different data expertises (Data Engineers, Data Scientists and Data Analysts) who work on different products and projects within Nedap Healthcare. 

Within Nedap Healthcare there are a large number of product teams that develop and maintain software products. Because the data platform is relevant for all these teams, you will have a lot of contact with different colleagues outside your team. 

In a post-coronary situation, you can work partly at home. The aim is to work at the office at least 2 days a week.

Our offer

We offer excellent primary and secondary employment conditions. You are responsible for your own working hours and vacations. Nobody keeps track of this, we rely on your own responsibility. In addition, we offer you the means to fulfill your responsibilities. Financially too, things are well arranged here. In addition to your salary and vacation allowance, Nedap offers a 13th month, a profit-sharing scheme and the option of shares. We also have a very attractive pension arrangement. But above all, we invest in your development! Nedap does not have a strict budget for your development. In addition to our extensive induction programme and personal development programme, we would like to explore your potential with you.

Required experience and skills

We are looking for a Python Data Engineer with at least a few years of work experience. You have a feeling for product development and you like to work from a pragmatic and structured approach. We are looking for someone who can build the technical core of this platform in a stable, scalable way. You have extensive experience in building, testing and maintaining Python programs, know how to call APIs, how MySQL works, and are familiar with (or interested in) Airflow, Elasticsearch and Kafka.

To get a more concrete impression of our technology stack, here are some keywords (we don't expect you to know everything): python (airflow, sqlalchemy, pandas, requests, connexion), mysql, jupyter lab, elasticsearch, powerbi, kafka, ansible, github, docker, semaphore, sentry. 

In addition, you have the following skills and capabilities: 

  • You have experience with Git, Docker, and CI/CD tooling such as Jenkins and Semaphore.
  • Any knowledge of and experience with BI concepts and BI tooling. 
  • Knowledge of ETL pipelines, data warehouses and PowerBi are a plus.
