Lead Credit Risk Application

Is the Rabobank capable of surviving another global financial crisis or impact of Climate changes? What risks do we face in case of such an event, what losses can we expect and what happens to the bank’s capital position? These are questions that we, the credit risk stress testing team, aim to answer in a quantitative way.

You and your job
The Credit Risk Stress Testing team is part of Risk Analytics - Group Credit Models (GCM). Every year we perform stress tests that are required by the regulators (i.e. ECB/DNB/EBA). Besides these, we also perform internal stress tests requested by for example the Managing Board or by individual teams/portfolios that want to get an idea of their position. To be able to stress the balance sheet of the bank, we implemented an application in which stress testing calculations and processes are orchestrated in an automated way. The Lead we are searching for will manage this application and set priorities for the Robotics team.

Top responsibilities

  • Set-up roadmap and define MVPs together with business users, developers, architecture and management. Actively manage issues, risks and impediments regarding the delivery of the MVP
  • Oversee and report on the implementation progress and advice on implementation strategies
  • Daily management and coaching of a scrum team (i.e. the Robotics team), with a varied background, onshore and offshore

Next to these responsibilities there is also room to:

  • Take the lead in refinement of features
  • Develop using Python and SQL in our cloud environment
  • Be a sparring partner for business users and management on model interpretation and implementation

“In the Stress Test Robotics team, we work on implementation of the technical infrastructure that support the stress test calculations. This includes setting up SQL databases, azure pipelines, connecting to Rabobank computing infrastructure and running the business logic code. We do these tasks while considering technical, business, security and efficiency benefits and concerns.”
