Posted on Monday, February 12, 2024

Welcome to the beating heart of the bank! As our newest member of the Corebank NL department, you'll be working on some of the most pressing technological and business challenges that face the financial industry today.

The Team

In our IT area, which includes Profile, our Account Management System (AMS), we are responsible for processing millions of transactions a day on our customers' current accounts, savings, and loans. With over 8 million customers, we hold the records for their balances, accounts, and transaction history. It goes without saying that high availability and performance are crucial for us.

But your work won't just impact our own department – a lot of other ING departments, such as online banking, mobile, cards, and payments, depend on the work we do here, and a large part of ING and the Netherlands rely on our work, so we take our responsibilities very seriously.

However, what really sets us apart is our work culture. We prioritize the voices of our engineers, ensuring that they are heard and can influence the technical roadmap. We put people first, supporting personal development and improvement initiatives. Our team members enjoy regular Mastery Days, where they can work on projects that interest them and develop their skills. Frequent social events make sure that we’re not all work and don’t forget to play.

Our social culture is highly collaborative, and we foster an environment where our team members feel at home. We encourage everyone to share their ideas, no matter how new or different, and we are always willing to take the first steps to implement those ideas. Our team members have a strong sense of ownership over the systems they work on and take pride in delivering the best possible service to our customers.

If you're looking for a workplace where you can grow professionally, work collaboratively with other experts, and take on some of the most critical and challenging issues in the financial industry, we would love to hear from you.
