Rabobank is a cooperative bank with a mission: “growing a better world together”.

Imagine helping us fulfil this mission in a data-driven way by joining the global Geo-capability team of Rabobank. With the Geo-capability the team is answering critical questions like, what is the impact of Rabobank on nature and of the nature on Rabobank. By being part of our team you contribute through GIS to help accelerate global food, climate and energy transitions. 

Wholesale & Rural Innovation – responsible for innovation in the International domain of Rabobank, is developing a (geo) capability that will be one of the key pillars to execute the Banking for Food strategy: Farmland. With this capability, we are building a golden source of all (Rural) geo-data. Think of it as digital twins of farms across our entire (Wholesale Rural) portfolio. We are looking for new GIS talent that can help us set up and scale this platform but also work on use cases that further unlock value from geo-data.

Collaboration and openness are key values that we follow in our day-to-day work.
