Job Description: IT Developer - Data Engineer / Scientist

Overview of business area or project:

Semantic Technology, Analytics & Machine Intelligence (SAMI) is responsible for the strategic Big Data framework. SAMI works in close partnership with Supply Vendor Management, Demand Management and Innovation to help evaluate Big Data technologies. The Data Scientists of SAMI define and set standards for bank-wide Big Data technologies, platforms, and analytical capabilities, providing thought leadership, product engineering, delivery, and implementation services across multiple functions. SAMI is responsible for Big Data technology governance, and the broader leveraging of Client Big Data initiatives.

Key Responsibilities

The successful candidate will work with clients to understand their data models and analytical requirements, help design and extend our semantic models (ontologies and taxonomies) to incorporate the client data models, and define the mappings between the two using standard mapping tools, such as RDB2RDF and a vendor supported mapping interface. The candidate will also help design and build analytic solutions to client requirements using semantic graph databases and big data platform components (Spark, Hive, etc.).

Overview of the department / team (team size, backgrounds, personalities ...):

SAMI performs a cross-bank function and as such is multi-disciplinary. We have five office locations: in Wroclaw, London, New York, Raleigh, and Zurich. The Semantic Technology team within SAMI is focused on leveraging Semantic Web technologies (RDF, RDFS, OWL, SPARQL, RDF Databases) to deliver data governance and data normalization solutions in support of machine learning and data science projects. We work in close collaboration with our analytics and machine learning teams and with analytics and data governance teams across the bank.

Challenges Contractor will be facing in this role:

1. Working on a team that is distributed between Raleigh, New York, London, and Zurich will be a challenge.

2. Semantic Web technologies are not widely used nor well understood in the financial services industry, although that is changing rapidly. One challenge of the role will be to help internal clients understand what these technologies are and what kinds of problems they are best fit to address.

Essentials Skills and Qualifications:

1. A formal background and proven experience in mathematics, logic, statistics and computer science, particularly within the financial services sector. Experience within related fields such as physics, analytic philosophy, chemistry or biology will be considered

2. A successful history of developing taxonomies and/or ontologies in RDF/OWL or other formal knowledge representation system

3. A successful history in utilizing No-SQL databases, particularly RDF Graph databases, for analytic purposes

4. Data Concepts (ETL, near-/real-time streaming, data structures, metadata and workflow management)

5. The ability to function within a multidisciplinary, global team. Be a self-starter with a strong curiosity for extracting knowledge from data and the ability to elicit technical requirements from a non-technical audience

6. Strong communication skills and the ability to present deep technical findings to a business audience
