Platform Engineer

Hilversum - Netherlands

Platform Engineer


At Xebia we are always looking for talented people to deliver value to our clients and their customers. We help our customers to become data-driven by building their self-service data platform in the cloud and therefore deliver direct value to their clients. We enjoy great success in enabling data scientists at companies to become data-driven. Just think of what more we can achieve when YOU join our team!

At Xebia, you will get the chance to work with passionate professionals within their field of expertise. We are looking forward to working with you!

Creating value together

As a Data Platform Engineer, you are responsible for the setup, deployment, and productionising of data-intensive environments.  You develop infrastructure as code that will support the setup of the self-service data platform. You are able to do this in at least one of the major cloud providers. You are experienced in architecting “simple” solutions and have a background in software engineering. Within your work, automating everything is written in your DNA.

What will you do?

With your knowledge of infrastructure, cloud, clusters, queues, containers, streaming, and graphs you work on business-critical systems with lots of data or help build such systems greenfield. You work at the client in mixed teams, and pick up the work that is related to the platform which the team is building.

When you're working on-site with a client you may come across something that is really difficult to solve. Luckily, every other week Xebians gather at our office to share knowledge with each other, to discuss and even solve challenges with the help of the hive mind of Xebia. If that's too long to wait, everybody at Xebia is just a quick message away and ready to help at any time.

Why this job?

  • If you really like working with the latest and greatest cloud solutions from AWS, GCP or Azure
  • If you know your way around the big-data ecosystem and work with tools like Airflow and Spark
  • If you get energy from working for different clients and helping them achieve their goals
  • If you like working with open-source technology and want to make time to contribute to the communities


We organize amazing events; like skiing together or going to Ibiza, dinner and/or theme-parties, sportweeks, our own MUD or TED events… or organize your own event! The sky is the limit.
