At a glance

Group Innovation is an entrepreneurial team in search of innovative, mostly digitally-enabled business propositions that create value for our clients, employees and society as a whole.


One of our latest initiatives is Payday, a proposition to “gig and labour” platforms and temp agencies  enabling instant pay out of earnings. This venture is getting traction in the market, where both small (e.g. Charley Cares and Packaly) as well as big platforms (e.g. YoungOnes and Deliveroo) have shown interest.


Payday is currently in the scaling phase, the final stage before leaving Group Innovation and moving on as a standalone business, which could typically still take a year or so. Payday has a strong team (~15 FTE) behind the initiative and a lot of support from within the organization, including our Board.


Our current PO will leave us shortly and we are therefore looking for an enthusiastic  tech savvy Innovation Manager who's keen to scale Payday further as PO.

Your job

You will become part of the “Platforms” theme which focusses on leveraging platforms for superior customer experience. The Payday team itself currently consists of the forementioned PO and several business colleagues, designers, AI specialists and technical developers. This team is scaling Payday further with our clients, developing both technical, commercial as well as operational elements.


For our PO role we are looking for someone who brings:

  • Solid PO experience, including defining product roadmap priorities, working with and guiding development teams to manage delivery of digital products
  • Experience in Design Thinking and Lean Start-up methodologies
  • Experience in managing a 8+ FTE tech team including Full stack Devs, mobile front end Devs, and UX designers
  • Experience with native mobile App development and deployment on iOS and Android
  • Ability to operate in a customer facing role and work with clients’ technical teams
  • Ability to inspire and co-lead the rest of the Payday team
  • An eye for commercial aspects and business development
  • The ideal candidate will also bring experience in payments / wallets and in Risk and Compliance procedures.

Working environment

The Innovation Centre is an open and lively space at the heart of ABN AMRO where we connect with the world inside and outside the bank. Group Innovation brings committed and engaged professionals of various backgrounds together to work on the future of ABN AMRO. The working atmosphere in our Innovation Centre is modern, international and highly autonomous.

Your profile

The ideal candidate is a digital savvy, entrepreneurial and business oriented innovator familiar with banking or adjacent financial services:

  • You are familiar with the dynamics of innovation teams and projects
  • You have a MSc degree in a technical or business oriented field and at least 8 years of work experience, including several years as a PO in a start-up or in a corporate innovation setting
  • Your energetic, open, investigative and infectious approach inspires others
  • You are result driven and have hands on experience in bringing ideas further from concept to detail

We are offering

  • ​​​​​​An inspiring environment, with new ways of working, co-operating and thinking, centring on learning from feedback and leveraging new technologies
  • A role in which you are given the opportunity to get the best out of yourself, grow and make an impact
  • A competitive salary and secondary package, including extensive support to stay fit and healthy
  • A large dose of energy and fun with which to tackle innovation at the heart of the bank
