Consultant Data Engineering

"Data as the foundation for supply chain solutions: you can make the difference for our customers by making the right data available in the right way."

We ask our customers: Are your supply chain and logistics fit for changing demand patterns, disruptive events and resource scarcity?  Do they support your climate ambitions with cradle-to-cradle insights and action?

Supply chain is our DNA, engineering and analytics our key focus and interest. We believe that applying the right technology enables our customers to improve their supply chain processes and planning. And, as a consequence, improve their business: better results, build resilience and be sustainable.

Our supply chain and logistic solutions ensure:

  • Informed decisions on strategy, tactics and operations throughout the entire chain
  • A unique mix of process experience, data science expertise, digital tools and technology

Your role

Data engineering is the foundation of good supply chain solutions. For example, how do you set up a well organized and secure data infrastructure? Or data flows in a cloud environment? How do you manage information security?

As Consultant Data Engineering at Districon, you will be solving these questions. You provide advice on the data infrastructure, so the right data is available in the right way to the right people. You design solutions that support supply chain processes, such as a production planning and scheduling, sales&operations planning or network design. In doing so, you can make the difference for our customers in all kinds of industries.

Your team

You will be working in the supply chain, manufacturing & logistics team, which consists of around 30 enthusiastic and driven colleagues. Together with the other Business Consultants with different expertises, you spar and constantly challenge each other to get the best out of yourself. You are entrepreneurial and would like to contribute to the further development of our global centre of excellence.

We work agile, we improve businesses step by step. Based on our in-depth industry understanding, supported by advanced analytical tooling & smart data experts, our efforts lead to direct added value.

We are doing this together with all other colleagues in RHDHV with engineering capabilities in the area of manufacturing, like process engineers or architects.

Your profile

You work on designing, building and maintaining ETLs and REST APIs, using the Microsoft Azure platform. And on extracting data from IoT devices, machines and connected plants.

You can read and write tools like Azure Data Factory, Azure Databricks, Azure Datalake. Thanks to you, our data infrastructures meet the requirements in the areas of security, compliance, performance and scalability. You are interested in setting up cloud environments via infrastructure-as-code and CI/CD, such as Azure Devops. You succeed in this by setting the right priorities and making the best decision for each challenge in order to achieve a good solution.

In addition, you are as a Consultant Data Engineering:

  • Analytical: capable of understanding and explaining complex processes
  • Pragmatic: because not always the best technological solution will help our client
  • Brave: you have the guts to propose options out of the box

  • A Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Science or a comparable discipline
  • Experience with languages like SQL, Python, R or Javascript and preferably AIMMS

We alternate hard work with delicious lunches, Friday afternoon drinks, barbecues, winter sports and once every two years a weekend away with the entire company. If corona allows us, of course. In any case, a good work-life balance is important to us.

And then, you also get:

  • A competitive salary with good career opportunities
  • Participation in the multi-year development program 'Expedition Districon' that consists of coaching and training of practical skills and your consulting- and coaching skills
