Senior SQL Developer (MS, T-SQL)


LET OP!! Dit betreft een Deta-Vast opdracht.

For our client in Amsterdam, we are looking for a Senior SQL Developer (MS, T-SQL)


Our client’s Asset & Liability Management (ALM) team is looking for a senior SQL Developer to join and help automate processing of financial data. The developer needs to be ‘hands-on’, capable to oversee complex data flow structures and processes.


Your work environment

To enable our client’s monthly financial forecasting processes and to support the stress tests, the ALM platform has been set up. The ALM platform consists of a Data Staging Area built in MS SQL Server and C#, which extracts, transfers monthly financial data that is loaded in a third-party application QRM to run financial simulations.

Further development of the ALM platform has been prioritised by higher management as one of the most important strategic worldwide objectives. Currently, the ALM platform is being transformed into a group-wide standard to support global and local requirements, and step by step new countries are on-boarded. For the Data Staging Area, this means that data of countries with different financial products needs to be aligned, enriched, transformed and functionality needs to be built to analyse or monitor unexpected differences between data.

Your ALM squad is a Bus-Dev-Ops team, combining expertise of business, IT and OPS specialists. The squad works according to Agile scrum, which means that work is sliced and planned in sprints, and as part of the team you take responsibility to deliver value according to sprint planning. Together with your squad/team, you are responsible to (re-)design a stable, standardized, and consistent ALM platform.
