  • In particular when it comes to the management and access control of large amounts of data, as in our development department, as a data engineer you will ensure that the framework conditions within the framework of data governance function properly and ensure compliance with standards and specifications of security and export control.

This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company’s success, reputation and sustainable growth.
