If you are highly motivated, ambitious and seeking a challenging and rewarding environment, you are looking at the right opportunity!

As our new OpenAPI Platform Manager you refer to the Head of OpenAPI and belong to the Open API platform team. We are responsible for defining the product towards our IT organization for development, and subsequently making it commercially available.

If you are passionate about bridging the gap between business and IT, this is the place for you. We are still a small team, so our tasks include everything from designing APIs in collaboration with IT and business teams, writing or editing developer documentation, creating samples, evangelizing, meeting with clients and developers etc.

 

Your responsibilities

  • Shape and validate new API functionality as it is being delivered from our IT department, making sure it is properly designed, documented and works as expected
  • Write or specify samples and documentation to explain certain features of our APIs and how they work in a business context
  • Engage with our API users and use their feedback to drive improvements
  • Specify, receive and launch features for our developer portal
  • Eventually obtain complete ownership of a subset of our API presence
  • Eventually work directly with strategic clients to analyze requirements and  scope possible solutions

 

Your qualifications

  • In depth knowledge of and direct experience with at least one Back-End and one Front-End development language (very likely you have a degree in computer science or similar)
  • In depth knowledge of and direct experience with APIs, API design and API technologies, preferably including Swagger/OAS
  • You have an opinion about what constitutes good API design and a good developer experience
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, as you will be engaging with developers, clients, writing samples, updating documentation and generally be an ambassador for the Saxo OpenAPI both internally and externally
  • Knowledge of the financial markets and experience with trading or investing is a plus

 

As a person you are

Passionate about API technology and have a keen interest in trading and investment. You come across as a good communicator with a passion for what you do. You have a strong sense of quality, and a will to succeed. At the same time you recognize that challenging problems are best solved through collaboration and that teamwork is essential.

 

We offer

We aspire to be a non-hierarchical, purpose-driven organisation. At Saxo it is not about entitlement, it is about impact, no matter where you sit in the organisation. A good idea is always taken seriously, and you can truly make a difference.

When you work here, you become part of the Saxo family. We invest in your personal development and offer you large responsibility from day one. We encourage an open feedback culture and team efforts. If you show a collaborative spirit, drive and passion, your learning curve will be steep and your (international) career opportunities with Saxo immense.

We offer good and competitive terms of employment.
