Working environment

In banking, Clearing denotes all activities from the time a commitment (buy or sell) is made for a transaction until it is settled. ABN AMRO Clearing acts as an intermediary between clients and the exchanges these clients trade on. We become the buyer to the seller and the seller to the buyer, taking over the risk to reconcile orders between the parties in the transaction. Processing around 18 million transactions a day. We do so for professional traders, investment managers and large corporates. As clients are highly demanding and the market environment fluctuates, you are guaruanteed to learn a lot in a short space of time. Working at ABN AMRO Clearing means thriving in an international, professional yet informal, fast-paced, IT-driven environment.

Your profile

You are an expert (application) security specialist who is able to maintain a clear overview, can lead groups on content, and can present and communicate to management and larger groups of colleagues. You are leading on content and contribution, and set the bar for application and infrastructure security. You are leading towards your team mates and coach them to learn. You create an overview across our estate.
You have extensive experience with all aspects of application security, and have supported application migration, transition and re-platforming before. You understand the balance between technical security measures and potential organizational mitigating measures. You identify application security themes across our estate and push for continuous improvement. You perform well under pressure.  
You are able to entice colleagues with your ideas. This means you can easily convince people and transpose technical jargons into understandable language effortlessly. Sometimes you will only be given five minutes to substantiate your advice and solution. This should be enough to make your statement.
Used to working in an international environment - English is necessary
Cultural sensitivity is important, as you will work with different nationalities 
Strong stakeholder management skills within and outside the Grid
