Because we believe we can help everyone maximize their financial affairs. "Feel at ease when it comes to your finances. Every day."

In a nutshell

You will be developing and maintaining the core cloud network infrastructure of the bank. To ensure Knab is in control, you, together with the network specialists and engineers in your team, focus on reliability, performance, and efficiency through simplification of the network infrastructure including Infrastructure as Code (IaC), network policies and routing setup.

You analyze problems and help determine a solution (or path). You find and implement the best solutions (sometimes in consultation with suppliers). Of course, you will be working on optimizing our Continuous Delivery and get room to improve the team as a whole.


The team

The core network team is part of IT Functions & Foundations (ITFF) stream and focusses on developing and maintaining the core cloud network infrastructure of the bank, including cloud native, cloud hosted, and some on-prem elements. The team works closely with our Cloud Platform team to maintain our general infrastructure (private and public Cloud, VPNs and monitoring).

The ITFF department contains multiple Agile teams focusing centralized IT and supports Value Streams which focus on the specific customer propositions. As part of the ITFF stream, you report to the IT Chapter Lead. At Knab you will have the autonomy to pursue your own initiatives and responsibilities.

At Knab we are organized alongside Value Streams, consisting of multiple Scrum teams, operations departments and a support team. There are two Value Streams organized around our Customer Propositions: Daily Use and Financial Freedom. Next to the value streams there is also the supporting stream: IT Functions and Foundations. By organizing this way: we achieve more focus and a higher speed of delivery.
