For this reason we are constantly looking for smarter ways to make digital banking as safe as possible. This is a key capability because there is a lot at stake.

The IT security wizards within our organization are the expert IT security advisors and coaches. Security wizards help our colleagues designing and running secure applications in a DevOps environment. The team contributes to the safety of the bank by the realisation of the crucial ‘shift left’: embedding security in the DevOps way of working.

Your job

You play a crucial role in securing our IT landscape in a dynamic environment. You brainstorm, advise and work together with our talented development teams to ensure information security at the start of our banking products. Briefly: a constant co-creation and security by design.

ABN AMRO’s IT organization is your biggest client, which is an international environment with people from all over the world. You meet with your colleagues frequently, with developers, product owners, grid owners, from all business lines, throughout the entire bank. It is important to scale the business and customer interests against possible risks. If information security is at stake, you will have to step in and quickly come up with creative and smart alternatives. There is a range of technologies and supporting tooling you will work with. This job provides you with the opportunity to work in an environment with a large diversity of tech developments, products and dedicated and skilled colleagues.

Working environment

We focus on IT security and people security, and work with our IT-colleagues to ensure appropriate infrastructure and application security. In terms of hierarchy, there is little to be noticed as we work together in completing our mission.
Working at ABN AMRO means getting even better in what you do. We understand customers, translate their ambitions into common success and earn trust. We want our customers to understand our products. This means that we sometimes turn customers away if the risk of a product is great for them. Customer interest is also: providing a clear product range and communicating clearly. Banking is our profession; the world is our challenge.
