Data Engineer Intern (Summer 2020) at Wolverine Trading
What You’ll Do
As a Wolverine Data Engineer Intern, you will have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of a performance-driven database infrastructure geared towards a fast paced trading environment. On the technical front, the Database team touches every layer of the data stack from hardware to the application layer. That means that the team manages design and implementation from the physical disk-arrays, fibre channel, servers, and OS through to SQL development and administration. You don’t need to be an expert on everything but be ready to leverage your strengths while learning a lot to improve your weaknesses. On the business front, this team works directly with software engineers and traders alike, so you will interact closely with both team members and stakeholders. The ability to have a keen technical understanding but communicate in layman’s terms is important. Day to day tasks can vary between database design, support, tuning, SQL report writing, scripting and anything else that could touch the database layer of the firm.
Afraid you won't be a fit because you don't know about the trading industry? No worries. Wolverine offers classroom education, hands-on training, and mock trading. Wolverine also provides fully furnished apartments that are located close to the office, making your morning commute quick and easy. Additionally, Wolverine will host several social activities throughout the summer to ensure an optimal work-life balance.
