    We are looking to hire 4 Data Analyst, for an international bank in the Netherlands!


    Preventing Money Laundering & Terrorist Financing are one of the key aspects for our society and our organisation, and as a bank we play a major role in this field. In order to be effective in fighting financial crime, we need smart individuals like yourself who get their energy from looking into data, patterns and behaviour of our customers in order to uncover illegal activities. Together with the team you will be responsible for optimizing our current Transaction Monitoring (TM) system and eventually for introducing more advanced analytics methodologies such as Machine Learning into our TM models.

    As you can imagine, doing this job requires statistical, investigative and operational expertise and if done successfully, will make sure that our analysts are able to focus on the true positive alerts - hence spend their time on truly value-adding activities. In summary, in this role you will be on the front line of fighting financial crime.

    As a TM data analyst you:

    • Perform data analyses using Python
    • Are experienced in working with large data sets (as you can imagine, years of historic transaction data does not fit in an excel file)
    • Are motivated by making our TM system more effective to catch criminals, not necessarily by using the most complex models
    • Perform data analysis and translate this into audit proof documentation that can be used for decision-making
    • Have extensive statistical knowledge and are able to use it to provide quantitative proof for model improvements
    • Combine a pragmatic approach to realize quick wins with a long term vision on further improving the model tuning methodology
    • Translate regulatory and procedural requirements around tuning (and back-testing) into a methodology and way of working that fits within the existing system and processes
    • Liaise with multiple stakeholders within the RetailNL domain globally. Such as IT, Business, Compliance and Operations within all regions to ensure effective management of requirements by actively seeking solutions related to building and improving the global AML/CTF solution.

    We expect you to be:

    • Business focused
    • Pro-active in your approach to problems
    • Solution-orientated
    • Able to deal with different stakeholders
    • Stress resistant

    Do you think you fit the following profile?

    • Academic degree (MSc / Phd) in Statistics or a related field
    • 2+ years experience in advanced analytics / modelling / artificial intelligence activities
    • Accreditation or certification in FEC, FATCA, CRS, ESR or AML expertise or otherwise

    knowledge of (inter)national risk and regulatory developments around AML/CTF is preferred

    • 2+ years of work experience in similar jobs (preferred)
    • You have excellent verbal and written communication skills; in English (and Dutch)
    • Understanding of banking processes, products and clients (preferred)
