About Nubank 

Tackling the complex banking system to empower people in one of the most bureaucratic markets in the world seems like a crazy idea, right? But that's why, how, and where Nubank was born. We fight complexity through our transparent and straightforward products and experiences: a no-fee credit card, a rewards program, a lending platform, and a digital savings account. In a nutshell, we are the most innovative tech company in Latin America, and we are obsessed with building financial services and products that make our customers love us fanatically. With over 30 million customers and $820 million raised in investment rounds, we are the fastest growing digital bank in the world, with offices in Brazil, Germany, Mexico, Argentina and Colombia. And it's still only Day One for us!

About the Berlin team

Nubank’s Berlin office hosts the data infrastructure platform team. We’ve built a self-service data processing platform from scratch that empowers everyone at our company to build, process, and query datasets that help push forward their work. Our main users include data analysts, data scientists, business analysts, backend, and data engineers. The team is focused on building well thought out and documented user APIs, backed by scalable data ingestion, processing, and serving systems. We make heavy use of the standard Nubank tech suite (Clojure et. al.), but since we are responsible for the data processing pipeline, you’ll also find Scala, Spark, Mesos, Aurora, Airflow. You will also be in touch with DynamoDB, Amazon Aurora, Datomic for databases, Tekton CI/CD, monitoring/logging with Prometheus and Splunk, and asynchronous communication using Kafka.

  • Foster a culture of teamwork, feedback and continuous improvement
  • Conduct effective 1:1s, team meetings and rituals
  • Manage individuals, enabling them to be high performers and to support others
  • Enable the team to deliver distributed systems at scale
  • Align stakeholders around team’s vision, goals, and metrics

  • Facilitate continuous improvement of team’s processes
  • Ensure the team maintains a high level of operational excellence
  • Actively drive and improve recruitment and onboarding
