Junior Data Engineer

Knab was founded in 2012 because we wanted to do things differently. Simpler, smarter and more advantageous for our customers. Because we believe we can help everyone maximize their financial affairs. “Feel at ease when it comes to your finances. Every day.” By combining smart technical solutions with a healthy dose of human intelligence, we create financial services that really meet your needs. Add to that some of the sublime personal service from our employees and you end up with something that’s truly unique to the world of finance!

In a nutshell

We believe that new (data) technology and techniques will help us in better serving our customers. Therefore we invest in a cloud based Intelligence Infrastructure with a Data lake at its core. Also, machine learning and advanced analytics models are seen as key tools. In the Data lake you get the freedom to develop and test your data streams, publication sets, models, based on streams of data that arrive automatically. Both linear and logistic models and the more complex neural networks can be applied, as long as these models can be brought into production and deliver added value to the customer. Here’s a little taste of your challengeā€¦

  • Setup, deployment and productionizing of data-intensive systems in close collaboration with our Data Scientists, Cloud Engineers and Data Management Team;
  • Engineering systems, from the OS-level to big data clusters;
