That smile on the face of our customer who has just received the key to their new home. You can make a difference as a Solution Architect and contribute to this. Certainly because, as a Solution Architect, you contribute to the cloud journey of the bank and are the driving force behind finding cloud solutions for all challenges of the DevOps teams during their Cloud journey.

Creating impact

Rabobank is in the process of transforming into a modern software development organisation, using the scale and innovation benefits offered by public cloud services.
