mytaxi encourages a strong team spirit and simple company culture. Our teams organise themselves in established agile working environments. People at mytaxi work flexibly and independently. Every single employee is a part of our success story and so, open communication and a fair feedback culture come naturally to us.

We are passionate problem-solvers who listen and understand before we act. By working together – with each other, customers, drivers and cities - we make things better. Besides a lot of fun and potential to make a real difference, you will have the opportunity to work with the best team in the world (we know, everybody says so, but at mytaxi it’s true)!

We are currently looking for a motivated and experienced Data Infrastructure Lead.

You will be the lead of a growing Data Engineering Team at mytaxi that works with an extensive variety of data systems in order to expand and develop an analytical platform that enables business users and data scientists to make data driven decisions, build innovative data products and roll out advanced analytics.

The Data Engineering Team is committed to developing a modern data infrastructure at mytaxi based on a Hadoop Data Warehouse. We are integrating and consolidating data from a broad range of microservices in our data pipelines. It is the team’s responsibility to maintain the data warehouse, the data pipelines and make information available for analytics, reporting, research and data products. Together with your team you will develop and improve our brand new tech stack including tools like Kafka, Spark, Airflow and Presto.

  • Scale and optimize mytaxi Data Warehouse Architecture with the company growth
  • Create blueprints for data management systems to integrate, centralize, protect and maintain data sources
  • Write efficient data pipelines using Kafka, Spark or Airflow
  • Provide Rest APIs for Data Products
  • Explore new technologies and look for the best technologies for the job
  • Be the technological and disciplinary lead of the data engineering teams
  • Work independent and be responsible for the continuous functional and personal development of the team members (e.g. through regular feedback talks) as well as the expansion of your teams

Main requirements

  • At least 6 years of experience in (disciplinary and technical) leadership of employees
  • In-depth understanding of the Hadoop Ecosystem
  • Extensive experience in modelling a Data Warehouse
