Your working environment

In the Agile world of ABN AMRO, IT is responsible for how the Agile teams operate, while the business product owners determine what focus areas the teams work on. This happens in close cooperation between the different grids (domains/knowledge areas). The Corporate Credits grid supports the business lines in advising, providing, monitoring and reporting on business loans to retail, private, commercial, corporate and institutional clients. Our mission: to provide the best credit solutions to our clients so that they can be successful with their company. The grid is responsible for several systems in the field of credit advice, provision, administration, monitoring and reporting. Many of the epics that are being worked on within the IT Delivery Domain, impact these systems. Your scrum teams contain the specialists who work on the changes in these systems. You are able, together with your teams, to manage the impact of the desired change in the right direction without negatively affecting availability and functionality. The total credit that is provided by the systems of the Corporate Credits grid, covers a large part of the ABN AMRO balance sheet. Availability and quality, especially of the credit data, are very important. A deviation of, for example, 1% of the provisions to be taken, has serious consequences for the P&L of ABN AMRO.
