Knab was founded in 2012 because we wanted to do things differently. Simpler, smarter and more advantageous for our customers. Because we believe we can help everyone maximize their financial affairs. "Feel at ease when it comes to your finances. Every day." By combining smart technical solutions with a healthy dose of human intelligence, we create financial services that really meet your needs. Add to that some of the sublime personal service from our employees and you end up with something that is truly unique to the world of finance!

In 2022, KNAB aims to also offer a lending proposition to entrepreneurs to fund and fuel their businesses. The challenge at hand is to develop a digital value stream, using modern technology and co-creation with clients. We are building a diverse team of go-getters that blend lending expertise with tech-savviness, a strong affinity for data and obsession for customers. Aiming for a market introduction later this year, we are now seeking for talent to help re-imagine lending. 

In a nutshell
The role of a Risk & Portfolio Manager is an exciting opportunity for someone with strong affinity with lending and relevant regulations and a track-record of getting things done.

As a Risk & Portfolio Manager, your role is to manage the risk-return on the lending portfolio of KNAB. You have a leading role to define smart lending standards based on the business strategy and relevant regulations and policies. The measure of success is the sustainable growth of the lending portfolio within KNAB.  

You will be part of the new Business lending team. As a Risk and Portfolio Manager, you will work closely together with colleagues in all disciplines (e.g. CX, data, credit specialists, sales, operations, engineering) to deliver value for customers.


  • You help develop superior lending propositions that distinguish KNAB from the competition in the market
  • You translate business strategy and relevant regulations (e.g. EBA Guidelines) into standards that guide the operating Lending procedures
  • You develop the control framework for the Lending Value Stream to manage the involved risks and improve strategy execution
  • You continuously improve the risk decision engines for loan origination and loan monitoring based on data-driven insights
  • You monitor the performance of the lending portfolio and pro-actively bring actionable advice to the table
  • You shape your own role and the way that KNAB defines risk & portfolio management

The Team
Within Knab we work agile and you will be part of a multidisciplinary team. This means that you will form a team together with a Product Owner, Lending specialists, Customer Journey Experts, Data analysts and IT developers.
