Big Data Engineer



Telenet believes that data makes better decisions. During the current data-revolution, they’ve seen multiple technology waves that allow them to execute on this vision. The Internet of Things allows them to measure, Big Data allows them to process and Artificial Intelligence helps them to make sense of it all. These technologies are only tools, which is why they want to invest in people that can make data accessible, understandable and actionable. No data staying in stuffy data warehouses, no algorithms running solely on the laptops of data scientists, but insights delivered to actual decision makers in a clear way through reports, websites and apps. They take end-to-end responsibility in creating, delivering and running these products. They do this in an agile way, creating products that provide clear value to their users.


Telenet has a unique position to deliver on this vision with its large customer base, strong brand and IoT-enabled network. Being a larger company, they need people that are able to create value through collaboration and see challenge in the multitude of their product landscape. As a Big Data Engineer, you will become part of a team of motivated people, making decisions better through data.
