Customer Service
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Posted on Thursday, November 9, 2023

The Lending Tribe is part of ING’s Wholesale Banking Lending Organization.

Our strategic direction is that we build the future of Wholesale Banking for our customers and employees. We create a fast, seamless, personalized & Data driven Digital Lending Xperience.

The tribe consists of three area’s; 1) Area Client Offering & Investors, 2) Area Client Services & Reporting and 3) Area Expert Squads

This position is for the Area Client Offering & Investors. Within this area we have a couple of initiatives which will contribute to making the lending processes fully digital and reduce the time to yes and cash to 24 – 48 hours. We will do this through rethinking, replacing and reinventing current processes and tooling while ensuring compliance to policy and regulations by design. There are plenty of different domains such as Pricing, Loan approval process, documentation process and credit monitoring process.

We aspire to develop & build the next generation Loan Approval Platform and transform the way clients and employees interact with each other to the best customer experience in the market for ING. This is a challenging area due to the high degree of complexity in processes and product offering. At the same time this is an Area which will directly impact the daily work of our >2000 WB Front Office and Risk colleagues globally, the speed which we can execute deals for our clients (with distribution in mind), which will ultimately enable ING WB’s growth strategy.

This role specifically refers to the squad mainly working on the Advanced Credit Rationale (“AdCR”). The AdCR reimagines how a Credit Rationale is created via a digital web-application. We hope to bring about time savings when preparing and reviewing the Credit Rationale through data re-use, pre-filling, while having a structured policy compliant by design template (e.g. EBA LOM) that is also future proof for data science and distribution activities. You will work closely with Front Office, Risk, and Policy colleagues to understand their requirements for the customer journey.

  • Agile Development: You will use different ways of working like design thinking, lean startup and agility to ensure the quality of features and stories. You have an entrepreneurial mindset; think big, start small and scale fast.

What is in it for you?

We are looking for someone who is tired of the current processes and systems. Someone with a growth mindset, who wants to drive change, work on cool digital innovation initiatives, including up-and-coming data science/AI use cases. We will provide you with the environment and support to learn new skills via trainings and hands on experience (e.g. IT, product development etc.), and turn your innovation ideas into reality (e.g. via design sprints, hackathons etc.).
