About the Challenge

Ironically, to deny the importance of cloud computing in this day and age, is to have one’s head in the clouds. But we don’t need to tell you that. You’re passionate about innovation, technology and disruption, and that’s what makes you a burgeoning cloud professional with a bright and promising career ahead.

Belfius is a data-driven company, committed to deploying the latest data management and analytics capabilities across the enterprise. They’re currently building a next-generation data platform, using the latest technologies from a cloud perspective.

As an Azure Data Engineer contributing to the setup of this platform, you’ll be responsible for gathering, analysing and challenging the requirements and for implementing future-proof solutions in an agile way of working.


Your skills

These are your tasks:

  • Contribute to the analysis and implementation of our new data platform and advanced roadmaps
  • Watch over the platform’s high levels of robustness, performance, security, scalability, maintainability and reuse
  • Participate in the further development process

To convince us you’re up to the task, we expect you to:

  • Be passionate about IT and technology
  • Become an expert in Microsoft Cloud solutions (Azure) – we have a 9 week paid traineeship to get you there!
  • Have a good mix of development skills (automation, version control, CI/CD, testing,…)
  • Enjoy collaborating on a common goal with a team, taking ownership of certain objectives that you work on independently
  • Know different databases, data warehouses and cloud solutions
  • Communicate well with both technical and non-technical stakeholders

In return, we ensure that you can optimally develop and use your skills and talents. We respect your work-life balance because that’s the only way you like to keep working. You choose how you fill your day, when you start or how long your lunch break is. You combine working from home with coming to the office near the Brussels-North train station. There, you’ll find a fitness room, a restaurant and cosy meeting places for a chat with colleagues.

Our offer

Exellys isn’t your typical recruiting or consulting agency, we’re a different breed. We are a tech talent incubator, which is every bit as cool as it sounds. Here’s what you can expect from us:

You’ll join an awesome community and enter our Cloud Traineeship. Did we mention you’ll get a personal coach as well?

Next to a generous monthly salary, you'll receive a company car or a flexible mobility budget and tons of other benefits (pension, daily compensations, etc.)

You’ll spend most of the time at (y)our client’s, except for regular Exellys trainings, fun events, tribe meet-ups, after works, knowledge sharing sessions, etc.

After two years of coaching and upskilling from Exellys, you’ll get the opportunity to join (y)our client’s organisation as an internal employee. Or if you prefer to stay with us, you could explore our follow-up Smart Programs as well.
