We are looking for someone with at least 8 years experience as a data engineer. This means developing data-intensive solutions like datawarehouses or other forms of data-intensive applications. You are familiar with the problem space where different applications model the same part of the world but with different solutions, leading to the integration design question. You have a proven track record in managing application software at scale.  We value experience in the financial industry, especially experience with Accounting, Regulatory Reporting and Financial Risk functions.

You have at least some experience with coaching other engineers on their craftsmanship.
