Data Engineer

We're seeking ...

Who are we?

We are a fun group of enthusiastic people that value, besides hard work, also a good team dynamic. Therefore, next to working hard on making a great tool that impacts the world we live in, we also make time to participate in fun team building events and activities.

YieldComputer is an agri-food-tech start-up that is developing and delivering a prediction service, powered by sensor data and Artificial Intelligence, to soft fruit (strawberries) growers. We aim to better inform soft fruit growers about how much they are most likely to produce 1-4 weeks ahead. Since soft fruit is usually sold in advance, an accurate and timely prediction has a huge benefit on getting a better price for the actual entire volume produced. To grow our product to reach even more clients we are looking to extend our team.

What will you do?

You will be part of a small (8-10) multi-disciplined development & research team with hardware experts (working on our smart crop cam), fellow data &machine learning experts (who laid the groundwork on our first models) and software developers (building our customer tailored dashboards).

Together with your team members, you will have a crucial role in data management and data structuring. You will extract, transform, monitor, and clean up the complex data that continuously enters our database and be the lead data architect.Furthermore, you will have a key-role in the development team between the developers and data scientists in organising and structuring 'analytics'-ready datasets.

We are looking for:

  • A relevant background in Data Engineering, Computer Science or a related study
  • Experience with cloud environment, such as Microsoft Azure
  • Solid experience with Python.
  • Strong communicator, passionate about the field and our project, able to bring concepts and results clearly across to both the team and multiple stakeholders.
  • Availability. Hours per week: (near) fulltime (32-40/ week)

It will be awesome if you are an incredibly detailed and independent person who dares to make your voice heard. Besides that, you can communicate concise and address your challenges and building concerns within the team, you are still eager to learn and willing to share your knowledge within the team. When something does not work you do not stop until it does and dare to ask questions when needed.

We offer:

  • A challenging position for our solution in a dynamic start up  
  • A fun but professional environment with room to grow  
  • An ambitious and enthusiastic multi-disciplinary team dedicated to solving a real-world challenge in an innovative way. With this solution we have the potential to have a significant impact on the (soft) fruit industry.  
  • A competitive salary
  • Flexible working hours
  • Flexibility in working at home and office*

*) Our office is based in Eindhoven at Strijp-T. You are flexible to work from home, but we have some structural working days together at the office.
