Are you ready to use your knowledge of Cloud, Full Stack programming tooling and future proof solutions to fuel the Ventures for a successfull product launch? Then please read on, because this offer will fit you like a glove!

Your job

As a Solution Engineer you are responsible for the architecture of the products that are being build in several Ventures. As soon as an exploration phase leads to a possible client solution for a specific demand or a detailed problem, you will advise the team on the required architecture for creating their 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!

Tools and technology
Within Group Innovation, we have setup a state-of-art AWS platform. 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 technologies could fill the gap. Together with the Venture, you will make the Ally/Buy or Make decision and align the solution with other departments within the bank.

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.
