Job Description

To strengthen our office in Lithuania, we are looking for two people who are up for a challenge as Data Engineer. In our fast growing office in Lithuania, our Data Engineer stands at the core of a transformation in the global real estate market. To make this transformation happen, we need data. And a lot of it!

One of our new Data Engineers will be dedicated to automated data extraction while the other will be focusing on collecting data related to environmental, social and governance issues in real estate investment funds. In both positions you will transform this raw data into structured files which can be uploaded to our semantic database, making sure our clients have access to the right information to base their financial decisions upon.
