What is ArK?
Started in 2021 by a six-time-founder/entrepreneur, a world-class AI technology developer, and the veteran banker you always wanted. ArK is headquartered in Stockholm but our employees balance their time between being at the office and working remotely.
ArK is a precision financing company that empowers technology businesses to grow faster by utilising it’s artificial intelligence platform, to understand a company's business health and design custom, dynamic loans with fair terms. ArK shares daily updates of its analytics and insights in a borrower dashboard and through APIs for continuous business optimization.
AiM is ArK’s platform for using big data and machine learning to analyze and predict companies’ current and future performance, to be used as a foundation for our frontier credit decision making.
As a Data Engineer in the team you will be part of designing and setting the roadmap for how we will develop the foundation of our technical platform. You will work with scalable infrastructure as you transform and handle complex data flows. You will work with a wide range of data sets, analyzing raw data from tech companies around the world.
You will work with connecting, transforming and modelling data to create the “ArK data model”, which is the foundation on which we base our credit decisions, build our machine learning models and produce actionable insights for our customers. It is no understatement that data engineering is at the very core of what we believe will make ArK successful.
Apart from an agile team of developers, working as a Data engineer at ArK means working closely with ML engineers, Data Scientists, Analytics, Sales, Product Management and our credit team. As a small but fast growing FinTech company, ArK has a culture of innovation and tech enthusiasm.
