At M&T Tech, we’re a team of makers, doers, and builders, working to create the most advanced technology solutions in banking. We’re not your stereotypical suit and tie bankers: We’re an innovative team of leading tech experts, pushing boundaries, and taking risks. We’re building an agile team of the most skilled and creative, working to solve complex problems, architecting solutions, writing high-performance software, and charting our new path, all to make the lives of our customers, and the communities that we serve better. Join us and be part of something new as we build tomorrow’s bank, today.

The Enterprise Architecture, Data, and Engineering Group is responsible with enabling our technology partners across the Bank with a suite of best-in-class Platforms, Tools, and Products; allowing them to deliver rich customer solutions all while decreasing their time to market. In addition, the Group creates significant value by providing an advisory and governance function on these capabilities, so technology delivery teams can focus on the “What” not the “How”.

This position is an opportunity to build the data framework with HDFS, Spark and Kafka technology for batch and streaming analytics. Data processes in BDM, if appropriate, include ingestion, standardization, metadata management, business rule curation, data enhancement, and statistical computation against data sources that include relational, XML, JSON, streaming, REST API, and unstructured data. BDM has provided a metadata injection layer for data ingestion across six SQL Server sources that will be leveraged for additional source ingestion.

Scope of Responsibilities:

Understand, prepare, process and analyze data to drive operational, analytical and strategic business decisions. You will create, modify and maintain both Sqoop and BDM code and complex SQL for BI/DW data flows. You will program in Spark and Python where BDM Spark co-generation is not adequate. Build end to end data flows from sources to fully curated and enhanced data sets. This can include the effort to locate and analyze source data, create data flows to extract, profile, and store ingested data, define and build data cleansing and imputation, map to a common data model, transform to satisfy business rules and statistical computations, and validate data content.

Tech Stack:

Informatica tools: PowerCenter, MDM, Big Data Manager
Databases: SQL, NoSQL, Postgres, Cassandra
AWS cloud services: EC2, EMR, RDS, Redshift
