Solution architect Client

Imagine that you work in a challenging international environment with the mission to enable the bank to provide relevant financial services to our clients so that the world is fed. Imagine that you are the technical lead for several DevOps teams.

Applications we develop and/or support are: ClientLink, ECO, GCoB, FileNet, WRR Data hub, GCDS and the GBPA. These applications vary in their life cycle, some applications are at the very beginning and some are at the end of their life cycle. The technology is a combination of ‘home grown’ applications and IBM, BPM and Microsoft package configurations.  Furthermore for 2019 and 2020 we foresee a  couple of new initiatives around Cloud, BPM, Power Apps and Cognitive Capturing.


The delivery cluster has a global responsibility and services over 20+ locations divided into 3 regions: Asia, Europe and North America.
