At a glance

We are looking for an IT Domain Architect with focus on Identity & Access management, working in the Corporate Information Security Office (CISO). The need for information security is rapidly increasing. Especially within a bank, where attackers have much to gain. For that reason we are constantly searching for smarter ways to make digital banking as secure as possible. A big responsibility as there is much at stake.

Do you have the knowledge and insights in the technical (im)possibilities and dependencies of large and complex changes in our IT landscape? Are you able to guarantee the safety of our bank- and client data in a smarter and better way? And are you excellent at communicating this to your stakeholders? Are you able to influence on these topics in large groups? Then tell us your story. We are curious. If you are good, you will become better with us. That we promise you!

Your job

Your primary assignment will be to define and guard the technical choices we make in our identity & access management-related IT landscape. From future state architecture and current state architecture to solution intent. But we also need you to build bridges and connect different views and opinions into one direction. You will work together with many colleagues and teams, as you align business objectives with IT objectives. As a sparring partner you will help the IT Lead, Grid Owner and Product Owner with the right cadres and solutioning. But you also coach, guide and monitor the agile delivery teams in their solution design and actual implementation activities, to ensure that the solution intents are delivered. In doing so, you also make sure that key non-functional requirements, such as security standards are complied with.

A Domain Architect has technical expertise, a long term vision, product knowledge and soft skills. Main goal: simplifying and improvement of the IT landscape so that ABN AMRO remains secure and future proof. All activities of the Domain Architect are really based on creation of long term value keeping the future state architecture in mind.

This role is for someone who enjoys working as part of a team of technical experts and being the linking pin between technology, product owners and management. This means that you will:

  • Coach agile development teams making the right architectural decisions in a landscape transformation but also able to provide clear guidance when needed
  • Help the development teams to cut big changes in small user stories and shippable products
  • Work together with several departments, teams and various technologies

This grid is delivering all Authentication, Authorization and Signing solutions for both customers and employees of the bank. The grid uses a mix of CotS and in-house developed applications to provide the required services, on several different platforms. Our environment is of key value to protect our (customer) data but also complex, challenging and even intriguing. You will be working with several other architects within the I&A domain, focussing on specific services and teams within the grid. Focus is on modernizing the landscape to remain future proof while keeping the impact for the employees and customers to a minimum. The collaboration with the other architects throughout the enterprise and your personal contribution has a direct effect on the strategic security architecture.
