Senior Data Engineer (f/m/d)

Fulltime, permanent

Why Zenjob?

At Zenjob we have a mission: We want to be the fastest way to access qualified staff in Germany.

Our last funding round of 27 million euros (May 2020) shows the trust our investors have in our mission.

As a disruptive HR-Tech company, we are revolutionizing the temporary employment market. We fill temporary job opportunities at attractive companies with pre-qualified students who welcome flexible work structures and digital processes: automated, simple, quick, and with an app. Founded in 2015 and now with more than 250 employees at various locations in Germany, we believe that the time of traditional job creation models is reaching an end, and that of intelligent technologies has come:

Netflix instead of television, Uber instead of a taxi, Airbnb instead of a hotel and Zenjob instead of classic job placement.
