  • Partnering with lead engineers to improve and optimise their solutions
  • Guiding all teams within S&I in obtaining the (technical) approvals they need. e.g. ARB, CAB, SEA.
  • Working closely with architects and other experts (e.g. CISO) around the bank to get our solutions approved and later integrate our solutions into the bank IT landscape (e.g. when transferring our solutions to a business line)
  • Maintaining the current state architecture
  • Supporting the hiring and development of talented engineers
  • Acting as a sparring partner to the Innovation Tech MT members on technical topics

The AI team is responsible for all data related activities within Strategy & Innovation, the bank wide (gen)AI strategy, and the implementation of AI solutions.

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. At Strategy & Innovation, we bring committed and engaged intrapreneurs, tech experts, engineers, data scientists, designers, bankers, and innovation professionals together to work on the future of ABN AMRO.
