LEAD SOFTWARE ENGINEER

As Tech Lead you will guide the team as leader and support by developing software in Go that extracts financial data from APIs and from multiple online sources. You make sure the team subsequently transforms such data into structured insight stored and maintained in our database and served to customers through our web app and API. Your role is tightly connected to the work of our Data & Insight team consisting of researchers with financial and local domain knowledge that create curated company- and industry analyses on the basis of your code. Besides excellent software engineering skills, you also show aptitude in designing and implementing cloud infrastructure solutions to optimally scale our operations.

 

Your team

We are a lean tech team with experienced professionals who want to build solutions that are long-lasting and inspire our customers. And because we are substantially scaling there's still plenty of room to have a big impact. In fact, as a founding member of our newly formed 'data' team you will have the opportunity to take a leading role in our expansion.

  • Languages - English speaking environment. As a European company we work with many local documents (esp. financial statements). It’s a big plus if you have a (at least passive) understanding of especially German or French and alternatively another European language


You have demonstrable experience with:
 

  • The ability to solve complex software engineering problems

  • Working in extensive code bases

  • Providing technical guidance for a team of developers

  • Having ownership over code and "getting things done" while keeping a close eye on sound design choices

 

Benefits
