Senior Data Engineer


Interested in joining a growing business, at the cutting edge of the global banking and payments sector? -this might be exactly the challenge you’re looking for. We are looking to hire a detail-oriented, data-driven problem solver with excellent Python skills, who wants to build up a data platform for reporting and analytics. You’ll be a part of a multinational fast growing fintech company. We offer you the chance to be a part of a truly international and vibrant company with more than 280 skilled and dedicated employees worldwide, who are all passionate about creating next-generation mission-critical financial services infrastructure and leading the rise of a super-correspondent banking network.

The position and why we need you

At Banking Circle we want to make an impact that pioneers the industry and creates instant value for our clients. But we also want to be a best-in-class employer where innovation and career development is going hand in hand. Due to exceptional growth, we are looking to hire a Senior Data Engineer, who is eager to participate in building the next generation of our data platform, on the Azure cloud. The data engineering team owns our existing data platform, which is closely coupled to our legacy payment processing system. As the whole system landscape is being replaced with state-of-the-art services, more and more data sources are coming online and will increase the need for a new decoupled and near real time data platform across all data assets. This is the data platform that we are building to support Banking Circles ability to enter the next level. Your tech stack will include Python, Azure functions, Databricks, Delta Lake on Azure Data Lake storage, Azure SQL (synapse), Tableau (PowerBI) and Terraform for infrastructure as code, but the stack will continuously evolve.

Key Responsibilities

  • Build our Data Platform in python in collaboration with peers
  • Taking the lead on small deliveries and initiatives
  • Interact with product owner and stakeholders to clarify requirements/needs
  • Contribute to continuous improvement of the team’s ways of working
  • Participate in short and sweet team rituals (planning, stand-up and retrospective)
  • Take responsibility for own learning and development
  • Nurture growth of less senior team members

Skills & Qualifications

Building a data platform on cloud isn’t something that many people have done and especially not for financial institutions. To be the right candidate we expect you to have a demonstrated capability from a similar role on senior level, where you have gained extended experience building data platforms on cloud for reporting and analytics and the ability to tackle this kind of complexity head on. Most of our code is Python, but you are also at home in SQL, and not afraid to pick up any new language or tool needed.

As a person you have an infectious can-do-attitude, a growth mindset and the courage to try new things. If you have experience with PowerBI or Terraform it would be an advantage, otherwise you can pick it up in the process. You have an educational background within computer science, engineering, or similar field (BSc level as a minimum). We furthermore expect you to be a dependable and knowledge-sharing team-player that cooperates well at all levels of an organization. As Banking Circle is an international company it’s a requirement, that you are fluent in English, both verbally and in writing. The position will be based at Banking Circles office in Copenhagen.
