  • You get energy from test-driven data pipelines: unit testing, integration testing and data quality tests.
  • You feel like getting to know new infrastructures such as Kubernetes and Terraform.
  • You already have knowledge of Apache Spark, Apache Beam or Kafka. Or you want to know everything about these data processing tools.
  • You have knowledge of machine learning models and look forward to learning how to integrate machine learning models into a big data infrastructure.
  • You don't shudder at large amounts of data. On the contrary, you love big data.

  • You are already familiar with a cloud platform, such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform or Azure.
