Junior Data & Operations Engineer



Transfluent is building a seamless translation platform that handles hundreds of projects per day and is experiencing rapid growth. We have offices in Helsinki, California and Texas and cater to customers worldwide. Our mission is to make human translations easy and become the leading translation provider in the Nordics. We are now looking for aspiring digital transformation professionals to join our Operations team in Helsinki and help us reach that goal.

Junior Data & Operations Engineer

We are growing and we need someone to crunch the data we collect all the time. Data is being used for general business analysis, but also to improve our operational efficiency. The role of the Data & Operations Engineer would include at least three kinds of tasks: 1) Business analysis, 2) Development of different kinds of operational dashboards (for monitoring the complex information traffic), and 3) Execution of the requests from those operational dashboards.

The right candidate would have the knowledge and capability to create data queries, skills in business intelligence/analytics, and a can-do attitude towards operational hands-on work.

The basic goal of our operations is to ensure that every translation order is safely received, assigned to a suitable translator, processed, and eventually delivered back to the customer within a given timeline. While a large part of this is already automated, we still need to do some manual work to get everything done. This is hard and laborious work and the selected person must be prepared to do it. On the other hand, the ultimate goal of the role is to automate 100% of the manual work, so the closer we get to this, the more time is saved for the more enjoyable development work. The Transfluent tech team will eventually make the automation improvements, but the Data & Operations Engineer is the one who needs to communicate the requirements to the tech team, so good communication and “translation” skills are needed for the interface between operations and tech.

Does this sound like you?

We want to know why you are different. The right mindset and attitude are much more important than your résumé. We value passion, intelligence and a cultural fit. Everyone at Transfluent is a doer and committed to making a difference together as a team.

– knowledge in SQL and your favourite data analysis tool (R, Python, Excel etc.);
– previous experience in working with large data sets through work or studies;
– can-do attitude;
– university degree or advanced studies in mathematics, industrial engineering and management, information networks, or similar;
– good communication skills;
– interested in languages and culture;
– fluent in Finnish and English;
– other programming or Google Analytics skills are considered an advantage

We can offer you a great opportunity in a rapidly growing company in the heart of Helsinki (Simonkatu 8). You will learn about the development of software as a service in the digital economy and help us disrupt the translation industry. Stock options are available in addition to a competitive salary. You will have a lot of autonomy and, despite the demanding nature of the job, we value a healthy work-life balance.
