We are looking for a Senior Product Owner with a drive to enable ING Engineers globally to speed up their software delivery and create state-of-the-art differentiating business solutions. Touchpoint Platform is part-of ING’s strategy to become one truly global bank and is a key success factor on our path to become a financial services platform that extends beyond banking. Through our platform, we provide a scalable foundation for digital channels and business solutions and position ING successfully in the new banking ecosystem.
One of the core products of the platform are the Unified Design System, One CMS and the SDKs for Web and Mobile. They offer a standard way to develop, deploy and operate web and mobile applications on the Touchpoint platform, taking away as much heavy-lifting as possible so engineers can focus on delivering business features. The product consists of multiple components or sub-products like our Configurable App Framework, Enhanced Webview, Security SDK, Flex Page, UI component libraries, and Front End Asset Management. These are developed and maintained by the different squads in the One Experience product area. The ambition is to extend the product further with features like scaffolding wizards, integration with our Global Engineering and Infra platforms (private/public cloud), in order to create the most seamless journey to be used by thousands of engineers within ING to rapidly design, develop, deploy and operate new applications and components for their business solutions.
The “Front End as a Service” product is part of the One Experience product area within Touchpoint Tribe of ING Tech. The squads (currently 6 to 7) that work on this product are located in Amsterdam, Manila and Bucharest, and consist of Product Managers, Designers, Web and Mobile engineers and Ops engineers.
