WeRoad is currently seeking a talented Data Engineer who will become WeRoad’s first resource fully dedicated to data management.

Working closely with all of WeRoad’s business unit leads, Operations team, and developers, the Data Engineer will have to gain full visibility on WeRoad’s business in order to design a data system that will best inform our decision making across all functions. Our perfect candidate will therefore have a strong, data-driven business logic as well as data engineering skills.

  • Partner with key stakeholders throughout the business to help them identify their data needs and prioritize which data systems to improve first based on their criticality to the business
  • Play a key advocate role within WeRoad to minimize non-data-driven (or non-data-checked) operational and strategic decisions

What are we looking for?

  • Bachelor’s / Master’s Degree in Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering or equivalent
  • Prior experience in using, managing, and (better!) setting up complex data systems
  • Business vision, we are NOT looking for a mere technician 🙂
  • Knowledge of data cleaning, storing, and management tools and BI/analytics
  • Familiarity with APIs and automation tools and ability to set up integrations with BI systems
  • A passion and outstanding attitude for creative and analytical problem solving
  • Fluency in Italian and English
  • Desire to have a real impact on WeRoad and to change us for the better leveraging your unique personal characteristics and skills

What can you expect?

  • A fun fast-paced startup environment full of ideas and willing to execute those ideas. You  see how your own decisions impact the organisation and affect its goals and objectives
  • Attractive salary
  • Chance to smart working
  • Access our new family bonus
  • Possibility of being one of our travel Coordinators…while keep working!
  • Don’t bother with formal wear or formalities
  • Free and fresh breakfast everyday
  • Live your dream of seeing the world with a free WeRoad trip of your choice every year: from the rice paddies of Indonesia to the Caribbean Paradise of Cuba, from Iceland, the land of fire and ice to India, the spiritual center of the world
