With your industry expertise skills and capabilities you are able to anticipate on future business needs. You ensure that the enterprise data model is in line with the data vision of the enterprise and you have a role in the governance of it. You create a plan for how data architecture will support and enable this. You are a fantastic sparring partner for business stakeholders and solution architects, with whom you define solutions and strategy for data:

    Your team  

    The Enterprise Architecture team is responsible for creating and maintaining the architecture of the bank and making sure the right IT-related decisions are made according to our strategy. Working in this small, highly ambitious team means you will have substantial responsibilities right from the start.   

    We are an ambitious and fun team. We celebrate our success together and in case of backstroke, we are there for each other. 

    NIBC as employer 

    NIBC is evolving from a financial service provider to a digital company in banking. We share a forward-thinking, can-do attitude with our clients, which we call our “THINK YES” mentality. Whenever our business departments identify a market opportunity, NIBC IT has to follow up quickly to enable satisfying our clients’ needs. IT aims to be one of the driving forces behind the digital transformation of our bank, an ongoing process that will profoundly change the relationship with our clients and the way we do business. We are closely connected, have few management levels and short lines of communication. If you have a good idea today, you may be elaborating it tomorrow. “Work hard, play hard” applies to the prevailing atmosphere, which is professional and informal at the same time. 

    What’s in it for you? 

    • The opportunity to ‘codesign your own job description’.

    • Bicycle pool for travelling to nearby business appointments or discovering the neighborhood.
