Who we are

The future of transportation is Green. Here at FlixMobility Tech, the R&D group, we develop software with the brightest minds from around the world to engineer new experiences for our millions of customers across our apps and websites. Every day we solve challenging problems, like how to scale rapidly around the world and how to make an experience that delights our customers. We have a culture of sharing ideas, contributing to open source projects and being an active member in our technical communities.

To support our ambitious growth, we are now looking for a Junior Data Engineer (m/f/x) to join our Data Platform team in Berlin.

About the team:
We are team Lambda, the Data Engineering team at FlixTech. We are responsible for building the data platform. Each data platform service can be seen as its own product, consisting of several microservices. We are highly focused on simplicity and ease of use by all data-oriented users. By establishing the data infrastructure with an additional tooling layer on-top, we are a strong enabler of our data-strategy: make the right data easy available to everybody for high-quality decisions.

Our tech stack: Scala, Python, Apache Kafka (Kafka Connect, Kafka Streams), Apache Spark (Batch, Spark Streaming), Apache Flink, Docker+Kubernetes, AWS (S3, EMR, RDS, IAM, etc.), GitLab for CI/CD and Datadog for monitoring.

Your tasks - Paint the world green

• You will be responsible for building a data platform for running big data workloads at scale, collecting and combining data from various sources and help data consumers to consume data in our data lake.
• You create the technical foundation for Customer Journey tracking: enable developers to collect data in frontend and backend and make data available in real time on the data platform for data analysts.
• You promote the usage of our data platform within the whole company by providing comprehensive documentation about our data platform and you improve our tooling layer for administering the Kafka ecosystem for loading and unloading data into our Kafka cluster

Your Profile - Ready to hop on board

• 1+ years of experience as Data Engineer or Backend Developer
• Solid expertise in at least one programming language (Scala, Java or Python)
• Experience with big data technologies (Spark, Kafka, Hive, Athena)
• Practical experience with Amazon Web Services (S3, EMR, IAM)
• Excellent SQL and data management knowledge

Nice to have:
• Previous experience in the design and implementation of complex data pipelines in the AWS environment (AWS Batch, AWS Data Pipeline, AWS Lambda)
• Hands on experience with Docker (and Kubernetes)
• Written CI/CD pipelines
• Knowledge of the data science stack (Pandas, Scikit-learn, Numpy, Keras, etc)
• Familiarity with machine learning
