Meet your future colleague Casper

For my current project, I work on the Google Cloud Platform. Here I connect data from different data sources like Salesforce, MariaDB, etc. to bundle them in a modernized data warehouse. I build custom Spark ETL pipelines with DataFusion. With the Data Loss Prevention API, I encrypt sensitive data with keys to ensure security and privacy. To orchestrate these data pipelines, I use Cloud Composer (Apache Airflow). Event-triggered functionality is handled by serverless Cloud Functions and object storage in Cloud Storage. I also make technical dashboards that monitor the components and their costs in Data Studio. In the end, the data is stored in a Kimball data warehouse model in BigQuery where the data is consumed by MicroStrategy reports.

In my downtime I like to go to the movies and go cycling to train for the company’s yearly bike event. We are going to Italy for the Duchennes Heroes event, 3 days of cycling with my colleagues while supporting a good cause.

Meet your future colleague Tim

On a daily basis I work closely with technical and business stakeholders in order to capture all requirements for designing a scalable architecture. By doing so we establish a cloud strategy and cloud architecture that is the perfect fit for the client's needs now and in the future.

I also design structured best practices for cloud utilisation at the client and internally at Agiliz. Collaboration, communication and problem solving are as important as my technical expertise on cloud architecture, AI/ML, data engineering and data platforms.

After hours I'm also fond of innovation and follow closely all space-related updates, seeing a live rocket-launch is definitely on my bucket list!
