About the Job |  Data Engineer

We are on a journey to transform the culture of working with data in our Claims unit. As we transform systems, the ease of compliant data access in near real time, becomes necessity. To enable this, we are getting skilled data professionals closer to the Claims business,  to work along with the Data & Analytics unit to accelerate our journey.


In your role as our new Data Engineer, you will get full responsibility for implementing claim domain data sources in the data layer. The work comprises disciplines such as:

  • Data analysis
  • Understanding of the ACORD data model
  • Implementation of streaming ETL
  • Data quality tests


Our tech stack is ever growing as we evolve and stay up to date with the technology  As a Data Engineer you will mainly be exposed to:

  • Java (Kstreams) – Java, in combination with our customer framework, is the main language used in all our data pipeline.
  • SQL – This is purely used for analysis, as all pipeline work will be pure streaming
  • Kafka – Kafka is used as the streaming platform. Our pipelines work purely on Kafka; both input and output
  • GIT – Everything must go into a Git repository, and together with our DevOps team we are moving toward a GitOps setup.
  • GraphQL – Used as an integration layer to other systems to read data from

About you

You most likely have a background in a data related field. You are used to analyzing and understanding large datasets. Solid experience with data analysis or java development is preferred. Up until now you might only have worked with batch processing, but want to expand your skillset with streaming – a journey we look forward accompanying you on!


Prior work exposure with Insurance domain is advantage but not a pre-requisite. As our data engineering tech stack is heavily focused around Kafka and streaming, it is an advantage if you can demonstrate experience with some of these.
