Data Engineer at Subaio

We live in a modern world where you can order everything from music to groceries as a monthly subscription. Consumers deserve control over their finances. This is what we do at Subaio. We’re giving consumers a full overview of their subscriptions and making it easy to both unsubscribe and subscribe.  Subaio is subscription management at its best!

Lockdown or not, our Subaio family is in the midst of a huge expansion and we want you here with us! We are physically located in Aalborg and Copenhagen Denmark, but available online wherever in the world you might be, if you match our values and mindset.

As a data engineer you will have the responsibility of building the best subscription recognition engine in the world. We already have a best in class product, but as we expand into new markets and new products we need to stay ahead in the game. That’s where you come in! You love working with data – finding patterns, finding ways of filtering out the noise, and developing code that does all of this automatically and at scale.

Who are we? Humans first, right?

We love telling stories at Subaio. And we are very proud of our heritage and the culture that we are building. It is our safe haven. The belief in storytelling also implies that we believe data speaks to the user and we are all about solving customer issues. We love having board game nights, and we are open to other fun challenges you might bring with you!

What will you do?

A typical day will look like:

  • Implementing algorithms for analytics on massive data sets

  • Cleansing data, pre-processing and integration

  • Automating internal processes for doing data enrichment

  • Service orchestration and process automation

  • Communicating between our dedicated ops team, client developers, and data enrichers.

We expect that you have very strong data- and development skills. We’re looking for profiles that have deep knowledge and experience with Java. We also expect that you have worked with algorithms and know how to apply such to real-world problems. The most important is however that you have the skills that go into implementing algorithms at scale, measuring the impact and constantly optimizing the process.

Worth applying if?

  • You have flair for developing data insights

  • You have strong Java qualifications

  • You have advanced knowledge of algorithms and experience in applying them to real-world problems

  • You have some statistical knowledge

  • You like to evaluate findings using statistics and make both incremental and evolutionary changes.

Your education is not as important as your experience. 

You can come from a pure developer background, but data scientists or similar are also more than welcome to apply – as long as you have development experience. 

It is a huge plus if you have had experience with working within a startup and have the entrepreneurial mindset needed in a workday that will be filled with ambiguity. But most importantly you need to be ready to have fun. Because it’s going to be a rollercoaster where the aim is to build the world’s best subscription recognition engine ever!

Working at

Subaio was founded at a hackathon in 2016. Prior to the event one of the founders had found an odd payment on his family’s monthly bank statement. What was this? After some research he found that it was a payment for a US online newspaper he had only used once and then forgot all about. This was the beginning of Subaio – the service that gives you control of your subscriptions. The last five years the subscription economy has grown more than 100% a year according to McKinsey. At the same time more people have a hard time cancelling their subscriptions. 42% to be exact according to And there’s no indication that this development is going to stop. 35% thus want their bank to deliver a subscription management system in their online bank according to Cicero Consulting.
