Adopt a data-first approach in all parts of the company


Here in Kaizen we are convinced that harnessing value from our data is the way forward. In order to achieve our data-first approach and enable all teams to make decisions and take actions based on them, we have built our Data Lake. 

Our new architecture enables us to host all our data under one hood, making them available in one place, supporting both structured and unstructured formats, batch and real-time ingestion and serving both analytics and machine learning workloads. 

As a result we are providing a scalable, cost effective single point of truth for all teams to work independently and create value for the company.

This initiative is driven by the Big Data Platform team, where 5 engineers are responsible for the design and expansion of the Data Lake. 


The Data Lake is used by many teams: the BI, Reporting, Data Science & Machine Learning teams are our best friends. As more and more teams attest to the value the Data Lake can unlock, our product teams are joining the ever increasing group, thus this is the reason our team needs to to grow as well.

Part of our day to day tasks is to find how to bring new data sources to our infrastructure and enable the downstream users to create value from the delivered data.

We are also there to take care of our Data Lake. The stability of our pipelines as well as the scalability and the efficiency of our design is crucial for achieving our company goals. As a result part of our job is also to design, develop and deploy all relevant tools that will make our and our data infrastructure users’ life easier.

Finally, we make our expertise in distributed computing available to any team that may need it, in order to accelerate Kaizen’s data driven approach.
