Feature Engineer Customer & Data


For our client in Amsterdam, we are looking for a Feature Engineer Customer & Data.


As a Feature Engineer you are part of the Tech community in the Netherlands and a key player in the cooperation between Business, Architecture, and IT stakeholders. In this triangle you create insight, overview and structure in a complex IT and Business landscape to help guide the way for our client’s squads. You drive to make complex changes happen within and across teams and departments. Your holistic view, excellent networking skills and ability to align stakeholders are crucial in the translation of requirements to solutions designs. You define and align solution designs and roadmaps between squads and other parts of the organization and thoroughly manage dependencies.


You will be part of a Chapter of Feature Engineers for the Customer and Data Domain, spanning several Areas of interest:

• Customer Data

• KYC and Onboarding

• Document Management

• Fraud and 1:1 Analytics

• Data Management


What you’ll do

• You will translate new product and service needs into required IT solutions and IT infrastructure (analyses and designs). These are essential in understanding the dependencies between the various applications, domains, and squads in detail. You can grasp business opportunities from new technology solutions. You think and act globally.

• You proved insight into the highly complex business and IT landscape to give your stakeholders the insights they need to support their decision making in solutions and priorities.

• You create solution approaches on Feature level and contribute on Epic level where multiple squads and multiple IT assets are involved.

• You support squads and management in prioritizing and delivering value while ensuring (technical) dependencies are discussed and tuned.

• You work together with many stakeholders in Business, IT, Architecture and more.

• Within your Chapter, you develop your craftmanship and that of your peers.


This specific assignment is for the Data Management area. Tribe data management is re-shaping the tribe according to the team topologies methodology and thinking. Our client is setting up different value streams and because of this they want to re-shape their risk approach. Currently they have about 70 different applications and this means also 70 different ITRMP's to maintain. This is too much for the various content teams to manage and it takes them too much time to keep everything green. They believe they can be more efficient if they would 'club' some applications/ITRMP's together with the different value streams in mind. They are looking for a feature engineer to make a proposal and to execute this. You will work together and align with the IT Area Lead for Data Management.
