Are you looking for a step up in your data career?

I’m currently working with an innovative IT Consultancy with a focus on providing solutions for “Big Data” projects. They have a simple goal, to develop data-based (product) innovations which will enable their customers to understand, analyse, and use their complex data. Hopefully allowing their customers to see the true value of data and embracing its full potential guided by expert Data Scientists and Engineers.

With clients ranging from Lidl, E-On, Sky and Bosch, there will be a huge variety of tempting projects for you to take the lead on. You will be joining an existing team that is highly competent, agile, international and forms the heart of the company, so don’t expect to just be another number here. Being an employee-centric start-up, they make a promise to give all team members flexibility and personal responsibility. As a result, they live by Jurgen Appelo’s “Management 3.0” and the principles defined within it; Leading Agile Developers, Developing Agile Leaders.

  • Experience in the design, development and provision of data integration/data extraction solutions
  • Ability to develop generic/reusable solutions
  • Willingness to support others

What can we offer?


  • An innovative and exciting start-up culture
  • Modern office in Munich (when we are all allowed out to play again)
  • Top-class team of data scientists, data engineers and information management specialists, all wrapped up in a pleasant working environment
  • A truly agile organisation following Management 3.0

  • A culture of continuous learning and training with at least 10 training days every year
  • The chance to take on responsibility from early on
  • Monthly team events as well as a summer party, Oktoberfest event, and a Xmas Party
