Data engineer @ Accurat in Ghent, Merelbeke



At data is key for what we do. And we have lots of it! Our goal is to use this data to construct accurate real-world behaviour insights of mobile users. Data insights range from places and events users attend, in which context (eg. weather condition), to what estimated demographics they belong… all based on their real-world behaviour.

To make this possible, a lot of data has to be searched, collected, processed and kept up-to-date.

To help us with this challenge, we are looking for an enthusiast data engineer to join our team. The main responsibilities will be to construct pipelines to collect and clean data from the web (eg. real-time weather sources, government data…), in an optimal way so it can process large sets of data and keep it up-to-date.

You will report to our CTO and are part of the data team including data scientists and data engineers.
