“VodafoneZiggo is evolving into a data-driven organization.” Sound too hyperbolic, or you already heard too many other companies say the same thing? We understand. It is, however, absolutely, positively and (pinky promise) demonstrably true. With an internal business intelligence community of over 140 heartbeats (clocking in at a healthy 100 BPM each), and an extended population of another 100 BI specialists, we DO walk the data talk.
Integrating a tsunami of streaming customer behavior and torrents of network and content data from two large corporate entities? On it. Predictive algorithms? In place. But how should we shape our BI ecosystem to engage and facilitate millions of customers? To answer that question, our BI community is looking for an experienced Architect with a pioneering spirit, solid conceptual skills and enough countervailing power to challenge the unchallengeable.
Enjoy the challenge
This is what you’ll do
As BI Architect you’re perhaps not a Che Guevara, spearheading the data-driven revolution, but you are certainly its main enabler. If it weren’t so anachronistic, we’d give you a Cuban cigar. After all, no matter which leading-edge BI tooling we deploy, without a high-performant, secure and scalable architecture, those high-flying initiatives would have nowhere to touch down. So yes, we embrace the idea that architectural investments are key, which means this role comes with a solid mandate and a generous helping of ownership.
It’s up to you to conceptualize and promote the grand architectural vision that facilitates and accelerates our BI and advanced analytics success. A fluid challenge, considering our merger, and that we are still transitioning to a single tech stack and unified way of working. Moreover, we have some important data warehousing decisions on the horizon, and we have our eyes set firmly on the cloud. But should that be Amazon? And, if, so, would Snowflakes’ robust JSON support and web scaling capability best facilitate our growth ambition? Or should we opt for Redshift’s enterprise-level oriented approach and internal machine learning engine? As BI Architect, you approach these (and many other) questions from all angles – including the business perspective! – and advise stakeholders on a future-proof course of action.
Speaking of stakeholders: these include senior members of the BI and advanced analytics community, as well as colleague architects in the IT domain. Aligning visions and architectural principles is key. Additionally, you counsel the BI management team; driven colleagues with strong opinions, so countervailing power is a real asset. Oh, and did we mention that your department is ‘going Agile’ while all this is taking place? In short, as BI Architect you sign off on the highways and byways of our architectural landscape, and create a Business Intelligence ecosystem that fulfills the businesses’ appetite for actionable insights as efficiently, scalably and sustainably as possible.
Together with 200+ colleagues you make up VodafoneZiggo’s BI Competence Center Utrecht will be your home base.
This is where you will feel at home. What makes the setting so special?
VodafoneZiggo connects millions of people and organizations. This is how we create value. For individuals. And for society as a whole. From our technicians and customer support professionals, to all of our office staff; our 8.000+ colleagues are eager to drive that positive change. To do so, we share three values: Open Up, Team Up and Step Up. These represent thinking positively, listening to and learning from each other, with a focus on collaboration, plus a penchant for thinking and acting out of the box. That calls for people who dare to transcend their comfort zone and face challenges with a welcoming smile. Is that you? Let’s meet up!
Do it your way
And become an entrepreneur. All roads are open as BI Architect at VodafoneZiggo. Over 200+ BI and advanced analytics specialists are eager to learn how your architectural choices can help them exceed business and customer expectations. To maximize your impact, you need to bring a mix of conceptual, influencing and presentation skills to the table. After all, you need to get your vision across, and that often requires PowerPointing the way to ‘victory’. We’ll roll out the red carpet for an Architect who knows the ins and outs of our sector, but we’re also open to candidates with an e-commerce background (you may teach us some new tricks!) and consultants looking for a career change...
