Microsoft Data Engineer

What does working as a Microsoft Data Engineer involve? We are wizards who turn data into knowledge. We work as consultants for various clients (and sectors) – partly on-site/partly from home – to assist them with Microsoft data solutions. Our credo is to empower every professional to make the best data-driven decision. Transforming data into usable knowledge is something you have right at your fingertips.

You will concentrate on what we call the back end of Business Intelligence:

  • Managing and customising the ETL or ELT process (Extract, transform, load)
  • Setting up and customising data integrations and data modelling (SSIS , SSAS, SSRS)

You will be using Microsoft data services on-premise or in Azure, or a combination of both. Understanding the front end of BI is important. So, in due course, you will also get experience in reporting and visualising in Power BI.

Project-based or long-term assignments, all options are on the table. Depending on the assignment, you may be working on your own or in a team, taking care of the project management yourself or not. Participating in pre-sales is also a possibility. The trump cards of this job are variety and continuous learning through experience.

But don’t worry.

The roles within assignments and their complexity will be tailored to you: sufficiently challenging for learning and not over your head. If you demonstrate a keenness to learn, independence and initiative, you will be absolutely fine. Don’t forget that you have a team of helpful Koherians standing behind you who will be happy to help you and facilitate your development.

Do you have these skills?

  • Azure data factory
  • Azure Synapse Analytics
  • Python (nice to have)
  • Databricks (nice to have)
  • Azure Datalake Services
  • Thorough knowledge of T-SQL and of developing ETL flows with Azure components or on-premise tools (ADF / SSIS/…)

Knowledge of Power BI would be a bonus.


Good basic understanding of general data warehousing and modelling principles (Kimball)


Fluency in Dutch and English is a must, and fluency in French would be a bonus.

And what's in it for me?

A strong team of technical and less technical colleagues are ready and waiting to help you wherever necessary.
Latest technologies
At Kohera we keep up with the latest technologies in data. So you can do that too!
Would you too like to get on board the Azure train? You can do that at Kohera, with pleasure!
All the benefits
Kohera is a small company but it is part of the Cronos Group.
On the payroll or on a freelance basis, either is possible.
A great remuneration package (mix of remote & on-site, flexible hours, reimbursement for meals and expenses, 31 days' holiday, car, reimbursement for phone and internet, insurance).

What's our story?

We’re a small team of 45, all into Microsoft, and all into data. Nice and cozy, we know and care more about each other than just the style of T-SQL writing.

We work for customers small and big mainly in Flanders and Brussels, partly remote, partly onsite. Variation in projects and assignments is why we choose to be consultants. We learn best while doing. Our customers bring us business expertise, we bring them technical expertise. 

Together we go for top notch database setups and data insights, on prem and/or in the Azure cloud.

Staying on top of wild evolutions in data land, that’s why we stick together. Growing in expertise and staying ahead of all things new, we believe isn’t something you can do alone. Thanks to being a gold partner of Microsoft we get cool early releases and testing opportunities before they reach our customers.
