ING is looking for a passionate Chapter Lead Data Engineering

Think Forward! Our purpose is to empower people to stay a step ahead in life and in business. We are an industry recognized strong brand with positive recognition from customers in many countries, strong financial position, omni-channel distribution strategy and international network. If you want to work at a place with lots of freedom to innovate, where we believe that you can live by the Agile manifesto without jeopardizing the necessary continuity, compliance and QA measures, where we are committed to deliver stable and secure services to end users, and where we have a 'no nonsense' getting-things done mentality, please read on!


As a Chapter Lead Data Engineering you will play a key role in driving the success of Data Engineering within the Wholesale Banking Advanced Analytics team from ideation to the delivery of data driven products and solutions. You will be involved in all data engineering projects and be responsible for maintaining a very high quality standard.


For 40% of your time you will have hands-on involvement. As a Data Engineer at WBAA you will be responsible for the data architecture and infrastructure of a project together with your colleagues. This involves the ingestion, scalable processing and efficient storage of data as well as the running of machine learning models and setting up of a full data analysis pipeline.

Next to the hands on project related work you will be responsible for the data engineers in your chapter from coaching and professional development to hiring and staffing. Furthermore, you will be responsible for promoting data engineering excellence within the organization.


Your passion is to work with the latest and greatest technologies that make working with large amounts of data easy, you’re pro-active in keeping yourself up to date and are always searching for new ways to discover new technologies. You also enjoy laying the architectural foundations for the things you’re working on. You combine both thinking of the future and a hands on, right now attitude. You will work in a team with highly skilled people and enjoy a creative atmosphere where trying things out is encouraged.


A day in the life of a Chapter Lead Data Engineering

As a Chapter Lead Data Engineering you are the single most important part of the team. Without your work, nothing moves, data sits idle and useless in a DB or even worse: in excel sheets. You are coaching, developing, inspiring and leading your chapter to take on this challenge by combining these sources in real-time, distributed systems to handle large amounts of data loads in no-time. Data scientists, analysts, business users, CEO’s are continuously praising you, thanking you, worshipping you….


That’s when you wake up to go to work. You start your day discussing with some members of your chapter on their challenges, coaching them to help them achieve the best and leading the way for Data Engineering standards within the tribe. After your morning coffee you sit with data scientists to find the best way to get their models to run in production, leading the way in how to aggregate the data and process it efficiently for each model. You talk to the business to ingest new sources, cleaning and preparing the data and writing the code that connect it to your application. After a lunch break with colleagues you think of a new technology you’d like to try out. You start investigating and write it up for the next experimentation day. At the end of the afternoon you finalize some comments colleagues had on your latest blog post or start building your presentation for the next conference you’re presenting at. As a Data Engineer working at WBAA, you’ll never get bored with many experienced and skilled engineers around you, the freedom to innovate and to not only use open source tooling, but also contribute and teach about them.
