Data Engineer - Subaio

Data Engineer

Subaio gives bank customers control of their recurring expenses. In a world where you can get everything from music and film to razor blades and cars as a subscription, bank customers crave an overview of their recurring expenses. This type of data insight delivers a lot of other use cases both for the bank and its customers – everything from switching to a better deal, getting approved for a loan and much more. This is what we do at Subaio. We’re on a mission of giving bank customers full control of their recurring expenses.

We’re looking for like-minded souls that want to join us on this mission. We’re a well-funded fintech with over 40 employees growing fast and getting customers even faster. We are a B2B2C product where we sell our solution as a white label service to banks. We’re already live with some of the biggest and most innovative banks in Europe like Nordea, Lunar, ABN AMRO and many more.

What will you do?

We are looking for a data engineer that can help us scale and improve our recurring expense recognition engine. We already have a best in class product, but as we expand into new markets and new products we need to stay ahead in the game. That’s where you come in! You love working with data – finding patterns, finding ways of filtering out the noise, and developing code that does all of this automatically and at scale.

You will be part of an agile and dedicated team who has the responsibility of building, improving, and maintaining our data models, data engine, and algorithms. We have minimal overhead and bureaucracy as we want the team members to be able to focus on the product.

A typical workday could include:

  • Designing frameworks, data requirements, and models needed to track recurring expenses and incomes, and identify product improvements.
  • Implement algorithms for analytics on massive data sets.
  • Participate in new product and feature development, where you have the voice of the data-side and do initial research for new data features.
  • Empowering our data enrichment team by providing insights that can guide their daily efforts.
  • Supporting colleagues with advanced queries and other complex analytical tasks.

We expect that you have very strong data- and development skills. We’re looking for profiles that have deep knowledge and experience with Java. We also expect that you have worked with algorithms and know how to apply such to real-world problems. The most important is however that you have the skills that go into implementing algorithms at scale, measuring the impact, and constantly optimizing the process.

Worth applying if?

  • You have strong, proven Java qualifications and experience with Spring Boot or Java EE.
  • You have advanced knowledge of algorithms and experience in applying them to real-world problems.
  • You have strong skills in SQL and scripting language experience.
  • You preferably have experience with MariaDB/MySQL and MongoDB.
  • You enjoy working with and analyzing very large data sets for better models.
  • You have a university degree in mathematics, statistics, data science, engineering, or other comparable field of study.
  • You can work physically at one of our locations in Aalborg or Copenhagen at least 2-3 days a week.

Your education is not as important as your experience. You can come from a pure developer background with a passion for data or a data scientist background with strong Java development skills. It is a huge plus if you have had experience with working within a startup and have an entrepreneurial mindset. But most importantly you need to be ready to have fun. Because it’s going to be a rollercoaster where the aim is to expand to all the European countries!
