Over de functie

Do you want to bring banking as we know it to the next level and contribute to the biggest digital revolution in history? Do you have an affinity with Data and do you agree with us that Data is at the core of the value we can bring to our customers? Or do you want to work on our internal API solution? Set up data lakes and warehouses, work on (visual) analytics projects and does solving complex data related cases makes you happy? Then Data & Integration Technology is the place for you!

With a combination of goodies straight from the market leaders (such as Informatica, Teradata, IIB 10 from IBM & Microstrategy), and self-build top-of- the-line tooling, Data & Integration Technology is the data and integration heart of ABN AMRO. You can work on radical modernization of our data landscape by moving away from traditional data warehouses to green field data lakes on modern cloud solutions. Or on creating of and
working on a flexible toolset for advanced analytics. Even on the development of a vast set of internal API’s to be used throughout the bank. The possibilities are vast. Building software is great, but creating value out of 7 petabyes of data is better! While this means we value our top notch quality standard, you’ll be surprised by the informal atmosphere in which we do this.

Required skills
o  You are able to tell your colleagues when you should go for a traditional RDBMS or when it is better to move to a more unstructured technology such as Cassandra, HBase, or some other awesome suggestion you provide.
o  If you notice that the solution that is required contains more unstructured text or that there is a need to combine different datasets, you’ll probably propose to implement technologies such as ElasticSearch or SOLR.
