Job Description

General information
  • Very flexible teleworking policy: you work 4 days a week from home if you wish
  • Many possibilities of evolution, as much in Belgium as internationally if you want to evolve in the coming years towards other responsibilities
  • Possibility to evolve as an expert in the same way as a manager (same salary policy according to your choice)
Why is it interesting to work at IBA as a Software Developer?
  • We have a high diversity of use-cases (analytics, ML, data platform, ...)
  • We work with cutting-edge technologies
  • We have full autonomy on our technical environment
  • We work in an engineering heavy culture
  • We work on challenging problems
  • We have an impact on the company
  • We have dedicated time slots for learning and access to learning material
What about the team you will join ?
  • We have a kind and diverse team
  • We like to spend time with each other in and outside of work
  • Everybody gets room for development
Concretely the job:

By joining the Advanced Analytics team, you will work on the enrichment of the enterprise data warehouse. In the scope of each project, you will create ELT pipelines in the Azure stack (Azure Data Factory, Data Lake, Databricks) from the database model provided by the business analysts. You will enrich the dbt codebase, deploy and test your pipelines. If you have interest in dimensional modeling or report creation, it is possible to extend your scope during a project, the team is flexible and try to be cross-functional. Power BI is the tool we use for reporting and self-service analytics is expending in the company, with more and more requests for us.

Quite often, the data sources are not tabular data, e.g. machine logs, git repositories, zip files. You will develop parsers or API on top of those data sources to shape them and ease the presentation in the data warehouse. The team uses Python because we have expertise, but other languages could fit as well.

The team is also in charge of maintaining its own data infrastructure in the cloud, and this infrastructure is evolving with the additional business cases to support. You will give your opinion and participate in the implementation and the monitoring; we use Terraform as infrastructure-as-code. We are also currently working on the definition of the data architecture and data governance company-wide; you will be involved in the implementation of demonstrators to enroll business users in a data-oriented way of working.

Besides the data warehouse, which is our main product so far, we will support new use cases: provide a notebook platform to our R&D engineers, organize a data lake with medical images for the researchers, put in place a machine learning platform for our data scientists, ingest very large volume of data about the proton irradiations, support real-time reporting on the machines health, create a data catalog of all company data… The future is busy for our team and we need muscles!

  • You have experience in software or data engineering
  • Software design patterns have no secrets for you
  • You are eager to build data architectures
  • You know how to assemble cloud components using infrastructure-as-code
  • Your Git repository is cleaner than your house
  • Building high-quality and sustainable solutions is your priority
  • Technology watch is a pleasure for you
  • You have an analytics mindset
  • You are fluent in English, French is a plus

Maybe this list sounds a bit too much? Relax, no one is a unicorn. Don’t hesitate to apply even if you don’t meet all criteria, awesomeness is a journey.
