AFRY is a European leader in engineering, design, and advisory services with a global reach. We accelerate the transition towards a sustainable society. We are 19,000 devoted experts in infrastructure, industry, energy and digitalization, creating sustainable solutions for generations to come.
This role is part of our Data team at Group IT at AFRY’s headquarters (it’s not a consultancy role). We’re proud of our collaborative work environment and truly diverse team in terms of competencies, gender and nationalities.
The main purpose of the role is to contribute to a transfer from our current solution to a more holistic and scalable data platform. Through your expertise you develop new concepts, frameworks and standards on a new platform built in line with AFRY’s data strategy. Additionally, you support and guide the data team to in an efficient way make data available throughout AFRY, as well as support our development team to build new solutions on the new platform. Furthermore, you will design, build and maintain solutions in AFRY’s current data warehouse. We estimate the role will be divided roughly 50/50 between the current data warehouse and BI solution and developing and driving the work with the new platform.
This assignment is an opportunity to combine working hands on close to technology and also being part of leading the work with our new data platform as something of subject matter expert. Your daily activities involve interaction with different teams, tech leads and architects. Long term the role could become a part of center of excellence and act as tech lead for the new data platform.
We believe the right candidate for this role has a few years’ experience of Business Intelligence, Database Management, Data Warehousing and Data Lakes. Furthermore, you are well versed in developing and maintaining scalable data pipelines ELT/ETL. Additionally, you’re good at agile development processes and SQL.
Experience of decentralized data architecture, data science such as predictive analysis and unstructured data is advantageous but not a requirement. The same goes for knowledge in Azure analytic services, Python / Pyspark and Power BI.
We put great emphasis on your personal attributes. In focus for this role is problem solving, collaboration and the ability to communicate and make clear for others the road ahead. If you enjoy the combination of being hands on with tech but also being part of driving the area forward that is very suitable for this role.
