Big Data Engineer

Job description


The ideal blend of stability and flexibility. A genuinely human employer that cares for people and the planet. True autonomy to shape what comes next, for us and you. This is the perfect platform to take your career where you want.

Back in 2005, we pioneered Europe’s first TV streaming service. Today, we’re the world’s first certified climate neutral TV streaming provider. 3 million users across three countries. Over 230 colleagues of 47 nationalities. We’re the grown-up start-up, helping to shape a better future since day one. That hasn’t changed, even if the world has. We’re friendly, international, inclusive – and our people say we’re reliable and transparent, too. It’s why they trust us and believe in what we do.


Data is a core advantage of OTT/Unicast TV over traditional broadcast. As a platform operator we know exactly what content our users watch, how popular a show is and how many seconds of each and every ad campaign is viewed. With roughly 3 million active users every month the data we collect from them allows for efficient and precise business processes and data based decision making.

At Zattoo, we already leverage a lot of our data (we process 6TB daily!) and still want to do more. We want to build day to day business decisions more on hard facts and less on gut feeling. Therefore we are searching for an experienced Big Data Engineer to join our motivated and growing data team. You will be shaping the big data architecture in this company and building data components that change the way data is leveraged in this company!


We are a diverse set of people ranging from data engineers to data and product analysts and machine learning scientists. We love bringing more value out of our data for the organisation and truly drive data based decision making in all divisions. We are a bit nerdy and understand the heart of our business operations and our stakeholders to do our job well.

  • Be the in house expert on systems, processes and software to best track, store, process and access data
  • Design and evolve our data processing pipeline to feed analytical needs and data products ranging from self service analytics to machine learning modules
  • Set high standards for quality, stability and robustness of the data and processes

What You’ll Bring

  • Masters’ degree in Computer Science or related studies
  • 3+ years experience working as a Data Engineer
  • Passion for data and impactful decision making
  • Experience building and managing batch data pipelines following CI-CD best practices
  • Knowledge of Airflow or other workflow management tools
  • Knowledge of data transformation (dbt), data modeling and query optimization strategies
  • Experience using data visualization tools like Tableau
  • Understanding of real time streaming frameworks with preferably experience in Kafka
  • Excellent programming skills in Python and SQL
  • Experience with cloud based data warehouses (preferably GCP) and analytical technologies
  • Experience with cloud-native deployment is a good plus
  • Experience with streaming platform like Apache Flink, GCP Dataflow or Apache Beam is a good plus
  • Strong collaboration skills with internal data stakeholders


At Zattoo, you’re always on firm ground with real freedom to explore. You’ll have the support and opportunity you need to go far, while you’re helping us create a sustainable and entertainment-filled future for all.

What We Offer You

  • Reward: strong market competitive salary
  • Recharge: 30 days vacation plus public holidays
  • Regulate: trust based flexible working hours and the option for remote work worldwide for up to 8 weeks per year


  • We’re sharing: Free access to the best streaming experience on the market
