  • Help build, maintain and support streaming data integrations and applications that underpin our operational and analytical needs. The role will help build and evolve standards and patterns for streaming data within the bank. 
  • Swedbank is increasing its analytical capabilities and diversifying its data landscape, looking at new ways of capitalizing on data, with the goal of better knowing and hence better serving our customers. In doing this, new platforms and technologies for discovery, advanced analytics and big data and security management will be explored and introduced. This will be done in close cooperation with the business and IT. 
  • Architecture governance for Kafka including platform, development processes, and evolution and support of the Kafka environment

  • In addition, knowledge of the business of banking and the key data that drives banking organizations is an advantage.
  • As an architect you are business oriented and understand that architecture is a means to an end and not a goal in itself. You are eager to learn how the business works and how new technology in the BI area can be used to accelerate business and customer value.

My role as a manager is to create a positive and collaborative working environment, and provide you the needed context and managerial direction.  To be successful, our team requires an open mind to learning new things and be ready to challenge the norm and change old ways of doing things."
