Big Data Consultant

Job description

Meet your new team 

The Professional Services team brings our cool products to the client. 

  • Our cool products = software that increases performance in sales and distribution activities

  • Our clients = African telecoms

Every day, we mix IT, business and project management; we install and configure our products and we train our clients’ teams. Once that’s done, we work hand-in-hand with them to adopt the product and generate optimal value with it. 

To implement a new project which takes about 6 months to completion, a typical team consists  of a project manager and a big data consultant - that will be you!


The role

As a Big Data Consultant, you will play an instrumental role in the deployment and improvement of our Sales and Distribution solution. It’s a client-facing technical role, combining the best of both worlds.

More concretely, you will:

  • spend time with our client and gain a thorough understanding of their business set-up, needs and technology 

  • dive into the customer’s data and build the integration layer with our software accordingly

  • guide internal and external stakeholders on all technical aspects related to an implementation: infrastructure - complex data flows - deployment of the product

  • bridge the customer’s technical environment and feedback to the product and support team back home

  • travel to various exotic locations in Africa and spend time with our clients
  • help your colleagues :)

You will quickly get responsibilities within the team and build a strong relationship with our clients, while developing your tech skills. You’ll get the chance to experience the thrill of the scale-up culture, but also get exposure to a more structured and complex environment when working at the client.
