What can we offer you?
In the position as Financial Data Engineer you will be working full time in our Data & Technology department located at our office at Havnegade 23 in central Copenhagen. You will become part of a small but growing company with 14 employees from various backgrounds.
Qblue Balanced is an ambitious organization, where you will experience a steep learning curve, while working with experienced and highly skilled colleagues within areas such as programming, finance, operations, and marketing. You will of course be offered training on a continuous basis based on your individual skill-level and needs.

In your new role you will get various responsibilities such as:

  • Flexible working hours
  • Flexible canteen arrangement from Meyers Canteen
  • A social workplace, where we enjoy social events such as our bi-weekly Friday bar

What are we looking for?
To succeed in the job, it is important that you have an interest in and flair for programming and data. You also enjoy working in small teams and consider yourself a hardworking, dedicated, and reliable colleague. Furthermore, you never shy away from a challenge and a new learning opportunity.

More specifically we imagine that you:

  • Are in the beginning of your career, holding a relevant master’s degree with great academic results within a relevant field such as finance, statistics, engineering, or computer science
  • Have some experience programming and are eager to become much more proficient
  • Have experience, and enjoy, working with large and complex datasets

Additionally, it will be considered an advantage, but not a requirement, if you:

  • Have extended programming experience particularly in Python
  • Have some experience working with databases and SQL

Most importantly, we are looking for a pleasant person, who are eager to learn, and fits into our ambitious but caring culture.
