Are you ready to kickstart your data engineering career with a traineeship? For our Skopje office, we are looking for graduates or starters with a focus on data engineering. You’ll be trained by our top consultants from the Netherlands!

As a trainee, you will learn how to build complex data integrations. You will collect raw data, build data models to transform it and run activation jobs to use your data into other platforms. We will teach you how to work with all the tools/code/platforms you need in your daily job. We will focus on Airflow, DBT, SQL & Python. The program runs in parallel with the data science traineeship. You will work closely together with them, the same as in actual projects for clients!


In our 7-month Data Engineering Traineeship DEPT®:'s experts will teach you everything you need to know to become our next excellent Data Engineer. The program consists out of 3 parts:

1.) Theory: with lectures

2.) A lot of self-study

3.) Challenging cases and guidance of our teachers

You will learn all the basics about data integration, data warehousing, cloud platforms (AWS, Azure & Google Cloud Platform), data modelling techniques, machine learning and consultancy.


Working with us: Step by step we start involving you in running projects. Your part will become bigger and bigger. You will set up actual data pipelines in Airflow and build data models with DBT.

Your own capstone project:

While gaining all the theoretical knowledge and the first “field experience”, you will get your own capstone project, where everything comes together. In this project, you will get the opportunity to apply your knowledge, hard skills and soft skills in practice and generate value for the business.


You will work in a young environment with clever minds that work for a variety of clients such as Philips, Rituals, Omoda, Randstad, BPD, and Swapfiets. Yes, we are eager to onboard the most talented experts in the game. But we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn, inspires, strives towards a better world, takes the stage, a futurist at heart, and someone who toasts with us to a successful week. We strongly support diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. Ultimately, we are looking for a unique individual who is able to strengthen our collective.
