Working environment

The Financial Risk Grid of ABN AMRO is a lively foundation of the finance and risk businesses of the bank. It makes sure that the ABN AMRO can report every piece of data that needs to land safely in the hands of our regulators. This grid is a mix of a deep combination of business and technology expertise that is challenging all of us every day of the week, and at times 24/7. If you come to work for the Financial Risk grid, you will realize how fun, ownership, responsibility, accuracy and drive become your reality.


The Azure & OPS Chapter at Financial Risk will have about 8 members with various levels of experience. You will be working with some of the chapter members also in your block (team). The key focus area of your block will be in and around regulatory reporting. We’re implementing a new application to centralize this and we have a number of existing applications to cover our current needs. We apply two key principles in our way of working and mindset; you build it, you run it, you love it. Think of automate first, too. You report to the IT Lead who is also your sparring partner for challenges with regards to staffing or other bigger topics like architecture. At ABN AMRO, we want to be a personal bank in a digital age. That strategy is also brought to life through how we work ourselves. We therefore want hybrid working to become the norm in our organization. This involves flexibly deciding where and when you can work most comfortably and effectively. Of course we offer you the right resources you need in order to set up a good home office. For example an ergonomic chair, desk and laptop. As chapter lead, you will work in a fast paced and accessible environment. We love to share knowledge with and to challenge each other, for example by sharing our expertise in our blocks, during the events of our developer community and by organizing hackathons.
