If you’re an SQL master and an experienced data wrangler, and you’re looking for opportunities to perfect your SQL skills and grow in your data knowledge – then read on.

Making a difference

  • You will be writing SQL and Python code in order to deliver the data that modellers and others need
  • You have the freedom to choose the path that leads to the solution.
  • As a Data Engineer you’ll need to ensure that the request matches the needs and assess whether the data sets are fit for purpose
  • You’ll develop the principles for creating data sets that meet the latest internal and regulatory requirements for data quality
  • If you have enough experience, you will also play the role of senior advisor and technical leader

With each other

Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. The Risk Analytics team safeguards Rabobank’s stability and sustainability. The decisions made in the department affect every level of the organization from overall strategy to individual products. As we develop risk models that shape these decisions, we rely on a diverse team of specialists: from data collection to modelling to validation and support. Every member of the team plays an important role in the process. But it is only through collaboration that the job gets done. With you as a Data Engineer, the team will consist of diverse colleagues in a variety of roles, including:

Tao Cheng, Data Engineer: 'As a data engineers we make sure that we really understand the needs of our stakeholders before we dig into different databases and set up a structure to create a solution. It is really a team effort to figure out how to solve a challenge and at the same time grow and share knowledge and experience within the team and beyond.'

With you  

The work you do will impact your team and your internal and external stakeholders, but also the client servicing process and therefore the bank’s core business. The work we do here is key to make sure the financial models at Rabobank are robust enough to ensure we’re in control of financial risk. You will be working on crucial datasets that are at the core of what makes the bank financially stable and allows the regulators to see we’re in control.

In addition, it's important that you recognise everything in the checklist below:

  • A Master degree in Economics, Finance, or quantitative field (mathematics, physics or similar)
  • Strong communication skills in English, both spoken and written
  • A thorough mastery of SQL
  • Hands-on expertise in Python programming (preferred, not required)
  • A deep understanding of banking, or the ability to learn this quickly
  • The ability to present solutions and provide clear documentation of all steps, so that data sets are not only useable, but sustainable
  • For senior roles: Proficiency in leading small teams to achieve agreed objectives together

Growing a better world together

You'll already be aware that Rabobank is a financial services provider for 7.1 million customers in 40 countries. But did you know that we aim to contribute to real change with our 'Growing a better world together' mission?  We do so in countless ways, such as:

  • We provide 500 million Euros in financing to the Dutch education sector annually because, after all, good education is the bedrock of tomorrow’s society
  • With the Rabobank Foundation, we support social enterprises. This gives people experiencing barriers entering the labor market the opportunities they deserve, and helps them to participate fully in our society
