Data Engineer

At Newzoo, we collect and model data from various sources to provide our clients with an accurate view of the gaming and entertainment landscape. We are looking for a Data Engineer who has a passion for games to join us as we build out new features and data sources to our analytics platform.


In this role, you will be working in our data foundation team and you will take ownership of our data ingest. What does this mean in practice? You will write scripts to collect data from new sources. You will help us build out our data lake and warehouse so that the data we collect can be easily consumed by other teams within the company. You will work on making sure our data collection is both stable and reliable. Together with our analysts, you will also have the opportunity to help us build and refine our data models.


Our Ideal Candidate 


We want to hear from candidates who have built data processing pipelines, particularly individuals who are driven and resourceful. Will you be stumped by a data source that does not expose an API or will you see it as a challenge? Are you keen on learning and self-development? Will you be willing to try new technologies and approaches? 


You should have a few years of professional experience as a data engineer, with a proven track record of building data collectors. High preference will be given to candidates who have experience in the technologies we use.  


Our Technical Stack 


These are some of the technologies you will work with within this role. 


  • Python 3+
  • Airflow
  • PostgreSQL or equivalent 
  • BigQuery
  • Docker and Kubernetes
  • CI/CD (CircleCI)
  • DBT
  • React



What's It Like To Work Here 


You will be part of the Data Foundation team based out of our office in Amsterdam, a 10 minute cycle ride from Amsterdam Centraal. You will work closely with other departments within Newzoo, e.g. our platform engineers and analysts.


In terms of team culture, we are relaxed. We work with Scrum, in weekly sprints. We adopt an accountability-based management style. We do not micromanage, instead, communication channels within the team are open. Project management is done in a collaborative manner, you will contribute towards setting the weekly sprint goals (i.e. what we are committing to building that week) and actively suggest ways forward. We expect you to be self-motivated and self-organizing. We encourage initiative and experimenting with new technologies.
