About the Challenge

NN (Nationale Nederlanden) is a life insurance provider with big ambitions in Belgium. We help people take care of the things that really matter. To do this, we need to manage our data expertly. We have a Data & Reporting team that does just that.

As a Functional Analyst in the Data & Reporting team, you will focus on the flow of data delivered through a unique data lakehouse. You will prepare the data for new uses such as business intelligence (BI) and artificial intelligence (AI).

• You will be the link between business and developers. You will gather and analyse the needs of the business and translate the requirements into functional solutions, taking into account the architectural vision.

• You will consider the entire application environment and the business and technical impact of functional solutions.

• You will maintain the unified enterprise data model across all of the departments and tools in the lake.


Your skills

For this role, we require proven experience as a functional analyst and experience with different deliverables used to perform a functional analysis (e.g. context diagrams, use stories/use cases, logical data models, fit-gap analyses, ...).

• Data modelling & data mapping (ability to consolidate different source systems to arrive at a common data model)

• Knowledge of Domain Driven Design principles

• Star schema / Snowflake diagram

• Database queries (SQL) and Delta Lake

Communication is key in this role. You will need to be able to communicate with your team as well as internal and external stakeholders. In our agile way of working, being a team player and taking ownership are equally important.

• Excellent English is a must. Dutch or French language skills are a plus

• Strong analytical skills

• A critical, problem-solving and proactive mindset with a hands-on approach

• Experience with business cases and analysis for AI projects on the Azure stack

• Knowledge of PowerBI, SSRS, ADF and Databricks is an advantage.
