Data Engineer for Credit Risk Modelling

O pozici

The data for credit risk modeling team in Belgium is seeking a data engineer for their location in CSOB Prague (onsite position, no remote).


Within the financial sector there is more and more pressure to ensure data is of sufficiently high quality and that it is consistent across systems and reports. This is particularly the case in the heavily regulated and supervised area of credit risk modelling. The European Central Bank (ECB), as well as internal validation and audit, continue to increase the requirements and expectations. Consequently, there is a great need for centralizing and automating the data collection process to the highest extent possible.


As a data engineer for credit risk modelling within the Models & Model Risk department, you will in a first instance be tasked with building a new database for credit risk modelling, as well as streamlining and standardizing all surrounding processes with the goal to strengthen the consistency and quality of the data we collect for modelling and model validation purposes. In particular, you will implement new data collection processes as well as a first set of data quality and consistency checks. On the longer term, you will become responsible for maintaining this database, and you will play a key role in our advances in straight-through-processing e.g., implementing the data delivery queries for annual validations (the yearly reviews to assess the performance of our models), implementing model monitoring processes, setting up data quality monitoring, etc.


The team you join is particularly diverse, gender-wise, nationality-wise and age-wise, and it is spread across offices in Belgium and Prague. You will work with junior colleagues, as well as more experienced colleagues. Diversity is a great strength in our team.


Has your interest been sparked? Are you enthusiastic to join our team in automating and standardizing the data collection processes, thereby paving the way to PARRADICE?
