At a glance

Do you want to help ABN AMRO Clearing expand its post-trade network? Do you understand what happens after our clients have traded on an exchange or are you keen to find out? Does working in an international IT environment with internal and many external stakeholders sounds interesting to you? Are you willing to dive into the details of internal and external changes and help us develop the infrastructure that connects us to external parties and enable our clients to trade across Europe's financial markets?

 

Then become a Business developer in our Market Infrastructure Team

Your job

As a Business Developer in Our Market Infrastructure team, you help us translate the wishes of our external and internal stakeholders to deliverables 

 

Together with the team, you:

 

  • Analyse externally imposed IT changes to assess and define the impact on our applications
  • Analyse and define the changes needed to be able to process new markets and new product types for your clients
  • Communicate and explain the impact of changes towards a wide range of stakeholders: from senior management, external partners and commercial colleagues all the way to IT developers 
  • Interact with our stakeholders to come up with improvements in our existing landscape 
  • Coordinate and test developed changes together with our stakeholders 
  • Work in a scrum team with a three week sprint cycle using the Atlassian suite (Confluence, JIRA) to track and document changes

Working environment

You will work in the Market Infrastructure Block of the ABN AMRO Clearing GRID.  The team consists of around 25 people focussing on developing, running and maintaining the software to receive and process trades and trade details from regulates exchanges and Central Clearing Parties. The team works in an agile way with three week sprints. A Product Owner sets the priorities for the sprints in consultation with stakeholders and the team is supported by a Scrum Master. We have around 8 people in the team located in Valencia and we believe we have up to 10 different nationalities in the team. The team is relatively young and has an informal way of working with each other. We aim to deliver the team goals together and don't like people who are only interested in their own successes.

 

ABN AMRO Clearing is the cornerstone of global financial markets. As a Clearing Bank we offer our clients the ability to trade on 90+ financial markets, giving us a top 3 position globally. In this position we secure and govern a safe, transparent and sustainable market. Our clients include professional traders, investment managers and corporates with whom we have longstanding personal relationships. We understand them and strive to deliver the same high-quality service across the globe. All with the aim to reduce risk and make financial markets more efficient and reliable. Given the high demands of our clients and highly volatile market, the work in ABN AMRO Clearing Bank gives a chance to learn a lot in a short period of time. Working at ABN AMRO Clearing means thriving in an international, professional yet informal, fast-paced, IT-driven environment.

Your profile

We are looking for a pragmatic and structured person that is willing to work together in a team with business developers and IT developers. 

 

You are:

 

  • Fun to work with and eager to make the team succeed
  • Used to working in an international environment - English is a must, Dutch is not necessary. Cultural sensitivity is very important as you will work with over 10 different nationalities
  • Experienced in working in the (listed) derivatives and equities industry - preferably in the post-trade environment. Concepts such as CCP's and CSD's  should not be a mystery for you
  • Used to working in an environment in which IT is a strong enabler for business. You have experience working on complex IT implementations together with IT developers and preferably have decent SQL experience
  • Not afraid of legacy systems and you have the drive and stamina to improve our applications
  • Able to work with externally imposed deadlines and the resulting stress and responsibility
  • Not afraid to dive into details - you go a few levels deeper than the Powerpoint level and know how to document these details efficiently 

 

Please do reach out to us if you are interested but don't exactly meet all the requirements as listed.
