At ING we use the title 'Feature Engineer' to describe 'IT Project Managers'
The feature engineers of our area NL Engineering Enablement drive technical initiatives (implementations/migrations) that span across all IT domains of Tech DBNL, by facilitating our DevOps teams.
Some examples of initiatives we work(ed) on:
Next to driving initiatives like the ones above, we act as spokesperson / SPOC for Tech DBNL towards platform and infra providers. For example, we represent Tech DBNL in the Azure DevOps consumer board and in the DBaaS consumer board. This requires our feature engineers to align with the supplying side (e.g. Infra & Engineering department) and the consuming side (our DevOps teams).
For Tech DBNL reliability and availability is critical, and we as feature engineers of NL Engineering Enablement can play an important role there. For example with participation in initiatives like Stop The Line and Next Gen Tech, but also by identifying improvements ourself and driving them towards implementation.
and we align with senior IT management on improving availability and security. We do usually not write code in our day-to-day work but we do get our hands dirty, meaning we are not dictating squads what to do, but we enable them by putting in the effort to solve the challenges the squads run into. We enable the squads to make it happen. For the initiatives that are planned for this year we are looking for a new colleague that has hands on experience with running IT and infra, and managing IT4IT initiatives.
What you will do
Do you feel attracted by the type of challenges mentioned above? Then read on!
As our new feature engineer you will be the well-known ‘spider in the web’. You will align with senior IT management (CLs, IT(A)Ls and CIO) and might regularly report into the JWG NL, but also go into technical discussions with our engineers. We do usually not write code in our day-to-day work but we do get our hands dirty, meaning we are not dictating squads what to do, but we try to understand them and enable them by putting in the effort to solve the challenges the squads run into. When the squads experience issues they cannot solve themselves and it impacts progress on the initiatives that you drive, they might come to you for help. You do not always have to solve it yourself, but you will take it on and make it happen: you will involve the right people and make sure the issue is solved. You will ‘own’ one or more initiatives/topics and be a trusted partner towards our IT Leads on those topics. Our feature engineers enable the squads to make it happen and help our management achieve the goals.

You might not tick all boxes and that is okay; do not let it hold you back from applying! But our ideal candidate brings in the following:
Were you able to tick quite some of these boxes? Then please apply!
You will be part of a chapter of 6 other Feature Engineers, all working on different initiatives. Though we work on different initiatives and many of us work from home most of the time, we try to bond more and more. For example by coffee meetings, organizing office days, learning sessions, chapter meetings and fun activities.
