Data Engineer/Architect, a+Lab


Do you want to be shaping the future of work, services and entire fields of business with AI? Forget about self-driving cars, personal robots and other trendy nonsense. To make a real difference, you have to go where the most boring, traditional and highly regulated tasks take place in the everyday lives of people and companies. If you dare to take that step, join Accountor in their a+Lab team! Their mission is to transform the financial management and HR industries into the age of AI! 
Accountor is looking for a Data Engineer or Data Architect (depending on skill and experience level) with solid understanding of data processing methodologies, data storage options and data sanitation practices.  You will be responsible for designing and building parts of ML and Analytics focused cloud infrastructure, as well as experimenting with new AI related business innovations as part of the a+Lab team. 
You will work closely with other a+Lab team members, as well as various people in product development teams and the Leads of development organizations around Accountor Group. The ideal character for this role is open minded, curious and gets excited about experimenting with new approaches. It’s important to be a team player, but also able to take independent responsibility and ownership of getting things done. Good communication and people skills are needed in understanding the needs and problems of different stakeholders and find the right things to solve. Being enthusiastic about hands-on problem-solving and interested in continuous learning and keeping yourself up-to-date is also highly valued! In experimental innovation work, you must be able to handle a certain level of uncertainty, so you are preferably driven by constant change rather than stability.
