>The job

Our client is one of the biggest digital banks in Spain, currently in the middle of an ambitious international expansion and a challenging technical transformation. Though they are part of a large financial group, they operate like a start-up in their day to day, using agile methodologies and keeping up to date with the latest technologies (cloud, devops, microservices, streaming, UX/UI, etc.).

They are currently looking for Data Engineers specialised in Scala and Spark to join the team here in Madrid, and help design, implement and maintain different apps and tech solutions for their Data Lake (based on AWS).

Main responsibilities:

  • Design and implement production big data environments using modern technologies.
  • Build, validate and optimize large-scale, big data solutions in heterogeneous data environments.


Obligatory requirements:

  • 3+ years of experience working with Scala, software design patterns, and TDD.
  • Experience working with big data - Spark is a must - Hadoop, Hive, and/or Kafka would be a plus.
  • Experience with Cloud ecosystems, preferably AWS (AWS, EMR, s3, Redshift, Lambda, Glue, Athena) though Azure and GCP is also fine.
  • Professional working proficiency in English (B2)

Would be a great plus:

  • Experience with different database structures, including SQL (Postgres, MySQL), and NOSQL (Cassandra, Redis, Elasticsearch).
  • Experience and expertise across data integration and data management with high data volumes.
  • Experience working in agile continuous integration/DevOps paradigm and tool set (Git, Jenkins, Sonar, Nexus, Jira, and Splunk).
  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Information Systems, Mathematics, or other STEM, and related fields, or equivalent work experience.

Nice to have:

  • Experience with data warehousing and visualisation tools.
  • Experience with NRT applications: Flink, spark streaming, hbase.
  • Experience with cloudera.
  • Experience with machine learning.
