About the Challenge

If you’re a young, ambitious IT professional who loves to build something from scratch, to bring structure to a new platform that’s still under construction, then read on. Within NN, we’re looking for eager young professionals who are up for a complex challenge with a steep learning curve and lots (really, LOTS!) of room for growth.

Core banking is a new, complex domain within Payments, which in turn is a new product chain within NN. (Not to brag, but we’re the most ambitious and innovative department within NN.) You’ll join the Run Payments team, a new team with lots of diversity: your colleagues come from all over the world and have different levels of seniority.

As a Business Analyst, you get to be part of the new core banking platform while it’s still growing and evolving. Over the course of only a few years, there will be a lot of changes in your day-to-day job.

  • At first, there’s a lot of project work. You help build (and break) the platform you’ll be managing later.
  • Afterwards, there’s going to be an extensive testing stage. When it comes to payments, everything needs to run as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
  • Once we go live, you’ll be doing more operations-related work. You’ll think of possible improvements and necessary changes and analysing new ideas.
  • Finally, your focus will broaden towards the entire chain: you’ll contribute to the continuity, availability, stability and performance of our applications, systems and interfaces

As you can see, there’s a whole career ladder to climb within Payments, but if you prefer, it’s easy to switch to another department and further grow your career from there as well. The possibilities for career advancements at a large company like NN are almost endless.


Your skills

  • Being able to deal with change and uncertainty is definitely number one. In the current phase, a lot still needs to be discoverend an the answer isn’t always clear.
  • You’re a knowledge sponge. The payments sector is complex and very technical. We don’t require you already know the ins and outs of Payments, but we do expect you to be eager to learn a lot – and fast.
  • You have good collaborative and interpersonal skills. You’re not afraid to walk up to someone or ask questions. Contact with diverse stakeholders is an important aspect of this position.
  • You know how to act during an IT incident or problem. You ensure that the MTTR – mean time to repair – is as short as possible and that NN customers can use our services without disturbance
  • You have background in a technical or data-related field and preferably a few years of experience in a similar role
  • Affinity with banking/payments/core banking is a plus
  • You’re an ambitious self-starter and you can work independently as well as in a team
  • You’re fluent in Dutch and English
