At a glance

Do you want to play a key-role by bringing banking as we know it today to the next level and contribute to the biggest digital revolution in history? The goal of this bank is to act as a fully digital bank in 2023 and further. Their clients must be able to invest and execute transactions without dependency on the time, location and the kind of device they are using. An agile environment has been created to achieve these goals together and starting in 2024 the organization should be fully operational in DevOps teams.

Your working environment

Our client supports the complete infrastructure of the bank. Their organizations are completely aligned which means you and your team support a specific business domain, such as Financial Markets, Channels (Internet Banking), Functions, Transactions, Digital Integration, etc. As application support engineer you operate as spider in the web between the customer, functional support and developers (suppliers) as TCS and Infosys. You are responsible for both: Run (incidents, support) and Change activities (projects, releases, advice). All this in a fast changing, so very dynamic environment where cloud, fintech, blockchain and privacy are a key-factor. To ensure high availability and performance work is organized towards ITIL standards, using the tool ServiceNow. Out of business hours support (stand-by) and  occasional weekend changes come with the job.

ABN AMRO is active not only in the Netherlands. The bank has Private Banking and Corporate Banking operations around the world. Private Banking offers financial services to wealthy individuals, while Corporate Banking serves large corporates. As part of our international services to corporate clients, we serve Dutch clients with operations outside the Netherlands and offer specialized services in trade and commodities finance, Clearing, Lease and Commercial Finance. These are the fields in which the bank excels. ABN AMRO aims to pursue gradual and disciplined growth of its international activities in the coming years.
