Job description

At BlueLabs we're combining the buzzing world of sports betting with modern tech and great engineering culture. We own our multi-tenant sports betting platform end-to-end. It consists of tens of microservices in a handful of decoupled domains, orchestrated by a terraform-provisioned Kubernetes cluster, achieving high scalability thanks to an event-driven architecture based on Apache Pulsar. We follow modern CI/CD and agile methodologies to deploy into production multiple times per day and use Datadog to monitor our infrastructure and applications.

We're now looking for a Data Engineer to join our Data Team. The team covers a wide range of skills to drive data-related initiatives and impact different parts of the organization. Our aim is to provide a solid data platform, discover insights, promote data-driven decisions, and collaborate with other teams to optimize, innovate, and enhance our services. The team's mission is to provide an ecosystem where data is transmitted, stored, processed, and analyzed in a fast, stable, reliable, and secure way. By applying data science on top of the gathered data and with ML-powered applications we want to give our company a competitive advantage.


  • Identifying problems, designing solutions, implementing them, performing code reviews, and maintaining services in the production environment 
  • Careful modeling of the data storage layer, ensuring reliable and swift message transfer, building high-performance data pipelines, and supporting Analytics and Data Science flows 
  • Applying simple and effective solutions, and a “getting things done” mentality

However, that's not all! At BlueLabs, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role and our product accordingly.


The compensation range for this role is €50,000 to €80,000 annually, depending on your skills and experience. We encourage you to read our Recruitment FAQs for further details. In addition to the monetary compensation, we provide several perks, including a shiny new MacBook 16" M1 Pro or Linux laptop.
