IT Development Engineer (f/m) TechLab

At a glance

Have you been craving the opportunity to get cracking, Full Stack style, with a small, focussed and committed team? Would you like nothing better than to create and see fast results while making the most of the state-of-art technical environment at your disposal? To build real, sustainable and innovative solutions that will actually be used as soon as you have made them?  Then please read on, because this offer will fit you like a glove!  

Your job

As a Development Engineer you are one of the Full Stack developers in a small Agile team that works on innovative initiatives. As soon as an exploration phase leads to a possible client solution for a specific demand or a detailed problem, your team will create an MVP (Minimum Viable Product). The goal is to share the MVP with prospective users as soon as possible to (in) validate the proposition. Of the proven and scalable initiatives, some will be implemented as part of the ABN AMRO label, others will mark the start of a completely new company! 

 

Working on an initiative - in more detail

During sprint 0, the focus is on onboarding and the creation of the first outlines of the solution. In the second week, the focus shifts to the product backlog, determining priorities and the selection of the technology to be used.

From sprint 1 you will start building on all the components the solution needs. You could be programming connections to data sources one day and build the front-end of a web page or test the code, the next. Or have a meeting with another department within the bank to learn more about the use of technologies like API's, Blockchain and AI. 

 

Tools and technology

You have a state-of-art AWS platform at your disposal to create MVP’s. This environment is fully tailored for fast implementation and cooperation with external parties. Should the desired solution require more than the available technology offers, you will explore and determine which technology could fill the gap.

Your working environment

ABN AMRO is a bank in the midst of a major transition.  There is a clear focus on client and data driven, sustainable development in line with the ABN AMRO’s mission "Banking for better, for generations to come”.  From the Innovation Centre, an open and dynamic place in the heart of ABN AMRO, you will contribute directly to the creation of innovative solutions for client based themes like Sustainable Urbanisation, Platformication and Digital Assets.  Solutions that will benefit not only ABN AMRO or financial institutions, but our society as a whole.
