Data Quality Specialist

Do you want to work at the intersection of the energy transition and making an organization more data-driven? Do you believe this can only be done with good data quality and do you know how to improve the quality of data? Then this role might be something for you.

Vopak is well underway to become a digital and data-driven organization. We have been standardizing our business processes across our terminal network, modernizing our application landscape, invested heavily in a data management program and data infrastructure foundation as well as speeding up the utilization of data to improve our customer service, make our operations more efficient, reduce our energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions and share our data with partners in the logical supply chain. 

In a brand new department within Global IT, the Data and Analytics Office, all data capabilities needed to support Vopak's data journey are centralized, ranging from Data Engineers & Data Scientists to Data Quality specialists and Data Architects. 

As a Data Quality Specialist you will be responsible for optimizing, expanding and creating new practices that will improve the quality of our data in our complete landscape. A start is currently being made with formalizing MDM and DQ processes including a limited set of data quality monitoring dashboards. We believe we need to further improve upon this to include more data, more components in our landscape (APIs, Data pipelines, AI/ML models), be more proactive in discovering bad quality data, and a more self-service model. 

You will become part of the global data management team and work together with business stakeholders, data- and system architects, data- and machine learning engineers to improve the quality of our data. We are in the process of selecting data quality tooling that will help us in doing so.
