Database Administration Manager (m/f/d)

The ultimate upswing in e-commerce was triggered by the pandemic and has surfaced the need for sustainability more than ever. Our mission is to enable conscious and sustainable online shopping.

About us

We develop an AI-based SaaS technology that allows online shoe shoppers to measure their feet easily and accurately at home in order to always find the perfect fitting shoe. This way, we reduce size-related returns and help avoiding unnecessary CO2 emissions, while helping online retailers lower their operating costs.

We are a strong, experienced team, coming from award winning innovation hubs with the know how to build impact-making products. In product creation and development, we consistently place the user and data insights at the center of our decisions.

Yor Role

Our product consists of two essential parts: Firstly, our digital measurement algorithm to accurately determine the dimensions of feet and secondly, a database of the exact inner shoe geometries. By combining these two assets, we create the perfect match between feet and shoes. The database is made up of 2D and 3D shoe data to ensure the best possible performance of our recommendations as well as their reliability for different items and brands. Working closely with our tech and sales team, you will lead the collection of shoe data sets and make sure they are consistent and scalable. Going forward, we see great potential in leveraging these datasets for further business opportunities. You are directly reporting to our CTO.

  • Building up our datasets in high quality and availability
  • Taking ownership of maintaining and expanding our shoe database
  • Handling, organizing and managing different versions of data sets
  • Evolving our database handling geometric data, like shoe lengths and widths or further dimensions
  • Standardizing the representation of data across different partner manufacturers
  • Handling 3D-CAD-models and setting up processes for automatically comparing different datasets
  • Improving our size recommendation system for different user groups

You bring

  • Outstanding understanding of geometry, dimensions and geometric operations
  • Hands-on experience in handling, organizing and optimizing datasets
  • Hands-on experience in working with structural databases (SQL, CSV, etc)
  • You do have a fascination for walking, feet and shoes
  • Excellent communication skills in English and German (our company language is English, but most of our customers are German speaking, so business fluent German is essential)
  • Structured way of working
