While we are growing, building and learning we have set ourselves a goal of serving 1 million end-users in 2023. That will only be the beginning.

    Next to working with your team (1 portfolio manager and 2 consultants), you will work closely together with the Area Leadership team and all important stakeholders within the bank.

    Dieuwertje de Rover, Area Lead: “The momentum to create a valuable product portfolio and drive the required organisational change is now. While the importance of Embedded Services (as we also call BaaS) is mostly recognized within the organisation, getting to execution is our major challenge – with important strategic topics still to be answered. As a lead you will get the opportunity to be in the driver’s seat, lay down the path, and be at the forefront of this fundamental shift.”
