Big Data Engineer – Spark

Our Business Intelligence team is looking for a Big Data expert to supplement our cutting-edge analytics team and bring our data platform to the next level. You will achieve this by creating real-time streaming processes to ingest millions of messages every minute. You will design, implement and support data models and ETLs in Hadoop in order to process several terabytes of data each week. You will also set up monitor processes and be first in line to deal with and solve data-related problems or errors. Your role will involve consulting the Business Intelligence team on internal data best practices and training them on real time processing tools so it is essential that you stay up-to-date on the best practices used in the industry. We only work with state of the art technology so we want you to challenge the status quo at trivago and continually investigate new data processing technologies.

The ideal candidate:

  • Holds a degree in Computer Science or a related field.
  • Has at least 1 year of experience working with Spark, Samza, Storm or similar stream processing technologies and large data sets. Experience with Kafka would be a plus.
  • Is passionate and up-to-date on Big Data technology trends.
  • Speaks English (our company language) fluently.
  • Works well independently, requires little direction and exhibits a very high willingness to learn new things.
  • Is skilled in approaching issues with creativity and innovation, and possesses the ability to think beyond traditional frameworks.
  • Can start as soon as possible.
