Big Data Engineer (Marketing & Customer Engagement)


That your engineering skills are key to solving urgent business requirements, while impacting the experiences of thousands of customers every day. As a Big Data Engineer you develop complete and scalable solutions in Spark on Azure. Because data is key for our marketing strategy, you will make a difference by ensuring relevant data is provided to our marketing teams, fast.

Create an impact

Your goal will be delivering data in a secure, compliant and automated way, all the while meeting Security DevOps principles. You will do this by:

  • Developing scalable and performant solutions in the Azure cloud, that process billions of records every day!   
  • You will be building and maintaining data pipelines, using Databricks (Pyspark) and Azure Data Factory
  • In addition to that you will be setting up and maintaining your own CI/CD pipelines in Azure Devops

But most importantly: You are a sparring partner for your product owner, stakeholders and your own development team. Stakeholders include marketeers, UX designers, and even other data engineers. Your work isn’t only vital within your team. Your expertise is also of utmost importance in helping other teams by getting their data projects of the ground.

For your next project you can expect to work with one of Rabobank’s biggest data sets: Google Analytics (GA). For this project, you will maintain data pipelines that ingest many GB’s of data every day from the Google Cloud Platform to the Enterprise Data Lake (EDL) on Azure. It is your team’s task to ensure that this data is properly prepared for use by our BI and marketing specialist. In addition to this, data quality dashboards need to be in place by connecting the (pre prepared) data quality metrics to power BI. These steps are very important, as we will be using the GA data to create aggregates for Pega Marketing.

With each other

At Marketing & Customer Engagement we enable personalised and relevant communication with our customers. We create and maintain self-service communication channels, so that our internal stakeholders can reach the customer at the right time and in the right channel.

An example? Go to The wide banner on the top of your page is personalized (if you have accepted your cookies of course). These personalized offers have a higher click-through-rate than default ones, which shows that personalization helps customers find the right content. Our team maintains several such interaction points, each with millions of views per week, which highlights how visible our work is. We invite you to find new ways of making our customers’ digital experience more relevant!

Lisa Hoving (Big Data Engineer):

“What sets team Shebang apart from other teams is the speed at which we can put data products into production. Our team members all have different specialties, meaning that we can create entire marketing products within our own team. Since our communication lines are short, we are able to make decisions fast. Needless to say: our team does the whole shebang ;)! ”

The squad works directly with business and marketers on a wide range of projects. We use the latest technologies, including Pega Marketing as the AI-brain behind the personalization.
