About the Challenge

Can’t decide between a career in analysis or solution design? Why choose? At APG, we offer a unique opportunity to combine the roles of Business Analyst and Solution Architect in a new function: Business Solution Engineer.

  • Defining business requirements and developing digitization proposals based on the requirements and available tools and knowledge;
  • Co-operating with DevOps Engineers to develop business solutions into designs and definitions for minimal viable products;
  • Build or help build the proposed business applications.

While you take on this exciting challenge, you’ll be working for the largest pension provider in the Netherlands.

Furthermore, you want to work for a top employer that values a good work-life balance, helps you develop yourself to your full potential, offers a network of young APG professionals and helps build a better tomorrow for society.
