Data Engineer

Exabel was founded in Oslo in 2016 based on the belief that the financial system will best serve society with fair, open and efficient markets. Exabel delivers an analytics platform for any investment professional who wants to benefit from alternative data and modern data science tools in their investment process. It fulfils a growing need in financial markets: while use of data – including fundamental, market, proprietary and alternative data – is critical for investment managers, modeling such data in house has become an excessive use of time and resources for all but the very largest investment firms.

The role

Our company and team is growing fast, and we are now looking for a Data Engineer to join our team in Oslo. In this role, you will play an integral part in ensuring that our client and partners can leverage their data on the Exabel platform.

Core responsibilities include exploring, cleaning, transforming/aggregating, loading, and maintaining new and existing data sources onto our platform, where they are used for models based on advanced mathematics. Another important task will be to explore and link alternative data to the finance space. At Exabel, you will be part of an experienced team, working cross-functionally with professionals within engineering, quants, product, partnerships, and ops.

Are you motivated to join a top-tier team who all share a passion for fin-tech, and work on formidably challenging tasks together? Then we would like to hear from you!

Core responsibilities:

  • Building and maintaining data pipelines from various data sources, and assisting data providers in adapting both structured and unstructured data to the Exabel Platform
  • Handle large-scale data processing
  • Develop data set processes for data exploring, modeling, monitoring, and trading
  • Building, scaling and maintaining our data platform (multi-cloud solution in Google Cloud Platform and AWS)
  • Developing and maintaining data infrastructure on our platform
  • Database administration within Neo4j, OpenTSDB, MySQL and Bigtable

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Masters Degree or higher within relevant fields
  • 3-5+ years of experience within data engineering
  • Solid experience with Python programming
  • Experience with Google Cloud and/or AWS
  • Experience working with data pipelining and infrastructure
  • Ability to show initiative, work independently and be self-driven

Ideally, you also have some experience with:

  • ETL and ELT
  • Google BigQuery
  • Time series data
  • Data retrieving and storing, and correlating data from many different sources
  • REST API
  • Java server
  • Familiarity with financial market data, reference data, and alternative data
  • DevOps mindset

We can offer:

  • Competitive salary and equity package. With the massive potential in the software that we are building, there is also a significant financial upside. All team members will get a chance to take part in that upside.
  • Opportunity to attend conferences. We are building tomorrow’s technology, and we encourage the team to visit and/or speak at conferences within their domain. We will also reimburse you for the expenses.
  • Spacious and modern offices in downtown Oslo, within walking distance of everything you need, including the main transport hubs.
  • Warm and healthy lunch every day – for free.
  • Flexible hours and opportunity for home office from time to time
  • 5 weeks holiday

What happens after I apply?

We aim to keep the process smooth and uncomplicated. Once we have reviewed your application we will be setting interviews with your team leader and if proceeding a followup interview with team members. 

We like for everyone to participate in a code test or a business case presentation.  It gives us a better glimpse at your skills and strengths.
