Data Lead

Are you ready to join a fast-growing scale-up? Do you want to make a positive impact on cities by changing parking and mobility? Then join our Data team in Amsterdam as our new full-time Data Lead!

About us

We are ParkBee, we develop smart tech to lead the digitalisation of off street parking. We are on a mission to give space back to the city. With our mobility management solutions we optimise the underutilised parking spaces and get cars off the streets. We partner up with third party applications such as Parkmobile, Park-line and RingGo to improve our services even more. We have offices in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and are now ready to conquer the rest of Europe. Join us in our fast growing journey! 


The job

As a data-driven company, ParkBee gathers all kinds of data from different sources – be it live traffic and parking data, financial transactions, customer support enquiries, technical monitoring, or simply detailed information on our various products and their usage. The data lead is the primary person responsible for setting the data strategy, covering both data engineering and BI systems, and overseeing the day to day operation.  

In this role, you will work with a data engineer and guide data and business intelligence (BI) analysts, to maintain and improve this system and encourage the spread of a data-driven attitude throughout the company. You have the full authority to make changes to our systems, introduce new tools, run workshops, and so on, as you see fit. Some of the responsibilities you have:

  • Overseeing our data engineering activities and coordinating with the development team and DevOps team;
  • Plan out and manage all data structures, transformations, and connections between this data in our BI system;
  • Ensure the integrity and accuracy of this data;
  • Overseeing BI strategy and working closely with analyst and internal stakeholders on key dashboard;
  • Help analyse, develop, and track business metrics based on this data;
  • Generating hypotheses for business improvement opportunities, validating this with data and facts.

Who you are

You are comfortable with different kinds of data and different ways of gathering, presenting, and combining data. You are comfortable working in scripting languages and will need to be aware of some of the coding best practices, so you can develop the backend of our BI system in a maintainable and scalable way. On top of that, you’ll need excellent organisational skills to align with requirements from different teams, fully plan the system, support our analysts, and work directly with users. This, to ensure that the entire company is receiving the data in relevant format to boost their workflows. You have excellent communications skills and are someone who can feel rewarded that the data and information you share keeps the company grounded in reality, and responding to it in real-time.


We are likely to be a match if

  • Have a Bachelor’s degree (or higher) in a technical field;
  • Have 5+ years of experience in data engineering and business intelligence, ideally experience in setting up data strategy;
  • Have experience working with data engineers, data analysts, in a modern product-driven & data-driven company. And you are willing to take leadership responsibility;
  • Have experience/knowledge with ETL tools, pipelines, and related procedures;
  • Have excellent knowledge of SQL and experience with developing BI systems with the Looker platform and LookML, or with similar platforms (Tableau, PowerBI);
  • Have knowledge with general purpose development tools such as; Python, Git, Docker, HTML/CSS/JS, or tools such as R Shiny / Streamlit / Jupyter;
  • Having experience with commercial data science topics (e.g. dynamic pricing, customer lifetime models) is a plus.


What you’ll get in return

Besides the fact that you would be given the opportunity to make a huge impact on the use of mobility in cities, we would also offer you a platform for growth! ParkBee readily encourages you to tweak, hack, and break on our Innovation Fridays 🚀. Meaning you would have the opportunity to be innovative every Friday and show us potential areas we can grow in! Our philosophy is to invest in our developers and they help ParkBee develop in return. Furthermore:
