    Data Engineer

    Are you ready to accelerate your software-engineering career? Xccelerated combines advanced, hands-on training with real-world work at one of our partner companies—like Heineken, Randstad Group, Vattenfall, or Pathé. After our 13-month program, you have the opportunity to join the company directly.

    Who are we?

    We are Xccelerated, a proud part of Xebia Group. We prepare young professionals (with a minimum of one-year relevant work or internship experience) to become authorities in their fields. We connect software/data engineers, cloud engineers, and data scientists with the most interesting data-driven companies in the Netherlands. We provide the opportunity to develop your skills further through challenging, real-world work experience and advanced, hands-on training. 

    Who are you?

    Are you a software engineer with at least one year of relevant work experience? Then you’ve already got a fantastic foundation for developing further and future-proofing your career.  

    If you have:

    • A desire to develop your software engineering skills further and work on data-driven projects as a data engineer;
    • A technical bachelor’s or master’s degree (e.g. computer science, informatics, artificial intelligence, software engineering)
    • One-year-minimum work experience as a software engineer or data engineer (related company internships or side jobs are also relevant)
    • The willingness to learn and interest in working at one of our partner companies

    Then let’s talk!

    What’s the program like?

    The Xccelerated program kicks off with a month-long, full-time bootcamp training. Here we focus on topics like writing deployable code, writing pythonic code, testing methodologies, principles behind scalable and robust code and how to process data on large scale with Apache Spark and stream data with Kafka. We will also cover containerization with docker and several deployment strategies.

    Some topics may sound familiar, but we’ll go more in depth into principles and best practices to prepare you for the next step in your career.

    After the bootcamp, you’ll spend a full year working on-site four days a week at one of our partner companies and returning one day a week to our Xccelerated office in Amsterdam. During these “return” days, you split your time between theory and practice—gaining project guidance and coaching from our supervising consultants to support you in the partner company’s projects, while also diving deeper into training topics not covered in the bootcamp. It’s always about continuous learning. Besides the technical aspect, we’ll focus on your personal development as well.
