Become a part of SMG, join us in this exciting beginning and support our Automotive team immediately or by agreement as our new

Data Engineer Automotive f|m|d / hybrid work model 80-100%

AutoScout24 and MotoScout24 are the leading marketplaces to buy cars and motorcycles in Switzerland. We are working hard to adapt to the new changes the market is facing in the future, from electro-mobility to different forms of ownership, changing buyer behaviour and transformations within the supply market.

These topics and many more are changing how individual mobility will work in the future. Join us and let's build the future together.

As the Data Engineer at Automotive you will help us build a platform that is driven by data - where people have access to accurate data and insights to make the best decisions possible, where users get tailormade solutions and recommendations and we hear more “based on this metric” rather than “I think green is better... green is my favourite colour...”.

You will work closely with data producers, owners and users across various domains. Understanding the work they do and how we can support them better will be crucial for you to choose the right solution. From a technical perspective, due to the merger between Scout24 and TX Markets, we have a large number of different tools and approaches. From still having some DBs running on-prem to a Kafka stream, everything is there. We want to pick projects one by one and continuously improve our setup and efficiency to build a data platform we all can be proud of.

  • You will ensure reliable operation and maintenance of the data infrastructure including orchestration of the cloud infrastructure, documentation, checks on data quality and operational efficiency
  • You will set up ingestion frameworks and data contracts with stakeholders that own data-producing systems, such as software engineering teams

  • You will contribute to building and improving data products (transformations, dashboards, logical data warehouse models etc.)
  • You will help building the Automotive data platform of the future
This is what you bring to the table
  • Bachelor's degree in computer science, management information systems, or equivalent
  • A broad history of best practices from your past roles as a Data Engineer
