Do you like to be part of a company where data really counts? Do you like to be part of a team
where you can directly see the effects of your developments? Do you have the drive, spirit and
high responsibility necessary for being part of a fast-moving trading environment? Then become
a Junior Data Engineer!

The key to success of a winning trade can be found in the fluid processing of the latest
relevant data. As (Junior) Data Engineer you have a key role in this process. The gathering and
structuring of the data to be able to translate it into usable information for the traders is an
essential part along the chain.
As (Junior) Data Engineer your main focus will be designing, building and operating our
Database Systems. You will be responsible for expanding and optimizing our data collection
and data pipeline architecture as well as optimizing the data structure in order that the design,
architecture and configuration meets the high-performance requirements of the business.
You will work closely together with data scientists and/or analysts to translate data questions
from the traders into the desired data structure. This enables it to process it to usable
information and/or directly being used in visualization tools. You will streamline the data flows,
build monitoring systems and assist on creating data models to make sure the trader is provided
with excellent trading information to beat the markets.
Your challenge? New data sources pop-up almost every day. Gathering these sources and
creating a framework to be able to easily process them into useful information sources and tools
for the traders to excel.

build sophisticated models, answer questions on the fly when new data comes in or that can
easily be used for more in-depth analytical purposes or trading models.

sources and will be educated to gain some basic knowledge of how the data is being used. You

the data in such way that your colleagues are able to use it. To improve the learning experience,
and to give you a smooth start, you will start with frequent peer programming sessions within
