BASE / Open positions / Migration specialist

Migration specialist

What will your role look like?

As a Migration Specialist your main task will be to help our Life Science customers’ R&D or Quality departments migrate data from legacy systems to new systems, in collaboration with a team of BASE specialists and possibly an external platform configuration team.

In the process you will analyse, enrich, and transform data in close collaboration with the customer, helping them understand their data and the required steps to make it fit the target system.

You will develop a custom solution to fit the customer project, built based on our migration framework, ensuring traceability and documentation of data transformations all the way to go-live. You may also take part in extending our migration framework.

To succeed in this role, it’s vital to be thorough and a team player – and it helps if you really like data!
