The Role

As part of our continued growth, we’re establishing a presence in Edinburgh. We’re looking for a Portfolio Data Engineer to join our Data Engineering team.

A core part of Addepar’s business relies on us being able to quickly and correctly ingest data from a variety of sources, including 3rd party data providers, custodial banks, data APIs, and even direct user input.  The data engineers on the Portfolio Data Engineering team help build and maintain the transformation and cleaning steps of our ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) pipeline before it can be stored and accessed by our customers in a standardised fashion. As a data engineer on this team, you’ll be building components within the ETL pipeline that automate these cleaning and transformation steps. As you gain more experience, you’ll contribute to increasingly challenging engineering projects within our broader data infrastructure.

This is a crucial, highly visible role within the company. Your team is a big component of growing and serving Addepar’s client base with minimal manual data cleaning effort required from our clients or from our internal data operations team.

What You’ll Do

  • Write code and design pipeline architecture.
  • Build pipelines that support the ingestion, analysis, and enrichment of financial data.
  • Improve the existing pipeline to increase the throughput and accuracy of data.
  • Work with data analysts to map general financial concepts to our internal data models in a repeatable and precise fashion.
  • Understand data models and schemas, and work with other engineering staff to recommend extensions and changes.
  • Use investigative tools and database queries to automatically flag irreconcilable data within our production datasets.

Who You Are

  • A degree in computer science, engineering, mathematics or a related technical field
  • Experience with object-oriented programming preferred (we use Java)
  • Understanding of data structures and algorithms
  • Interest in data modeling, visualisation, and ETL pipelines
  • Knowledge of SQL or relational database concepts encouraged but not necessary
  • Knowledge of financial concepts (e.g., stocks, bonds, etc.) is encouraged but not necessary

Our Values 

  • Act Like an Owner - Think and operate with intention, purpose and care. Own outcomes.
  • Build Together - Collaborate to unlock the best solutions. Deliver lasting value. 
  • Champion Our Clients - Exceed client expectations. Our clients’ success is our success. 
  • Drive Innovation - Be bold and unconstrained in problem solving. Transform the industry. 
  • Embrace Learning - Engage our community to broaden our perspective. Bring a growth mindset. 

In addition to our core values, Addepar is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We seek to bring together diverse ideas, experiences, skill sets, perspectives, backgrounds and identities to drive innovative solutions. We commit to promoting a welcoming environment where inclusion and belonging are held as a shared responsibility.

To ensure the health and safety of all Addepeeps and our prospective candidates, we have instituted a virtual interview and onboarding experience.
