Data Engineer (m/f/x)

Job description

About Sparrow

Our target customers stock spare parts worth $1,000,000,000,000 (yes, $1trn) – 75% of which are rarely or never used. Sparrow aims to change that – we reduce our customers’ overstock and waste (making them more sustainable).

Sparrow offers a SaaS platform that ensures maintenance teams have the right spare parts when and where they need them, at the lowest possible cost. To do that, we leverage big data, AI algorithms and a network approach.

Our products are used by some of the world’s leading companies.

We’re based in Berlin, serving customers across Europe and growing fast.
