ING is looking for both Functional and Technical oriented DevOps Engineer to work on our strategic global front-office application and further strengthen the eFX team.
Your work environment
IT for Financial Markets is responsible for the IT environment that enables the most crucial commercial activities of ING: Trading, Risk Management, and Liquidity Management. Thousands of trades are being processed in real time by our systems every hour. Flawless processing is key as trades covering billions of euros are passing through our systems each day.
We use top notch in-house engineered solutions and market-leading vendor applications. These systems and applications need to be running virtually 24/7. If they aren’t, Financial Markets will shut down.
Our teams are spread across the Netherlands, Romania, Singapore, UK and India, serving users in over 30 countries worldwide. Our teams are often virtual and the engineers forming them come from almost every continent in the world. Therefore, our main language is English.
Working in DevOps Scrum teams we are end-to-end responsible for our software: feature analysis, design, development, implementation and support of the production environment (we build it, we own it!). We aim to go to fully self-managing and self-optimizing systems.
Finally, we are now transforming the whole Financial Markets organization to BizDevOps, where teams are composed of engineers and business colleagues for a faster and more relevant delivery to our customers.
As an eFX DevOps Engineer you will join a squad of 6 experts based in Amsterdam and contribute in an Agile way to the full lifecycle of the application, from analysis to implementation. Together with your team you cover the whole scope of our client’s electronic FX Trading needs. From smaller day-to-day tweaks to complex configuration changes and coordination on big strategic projects where we move from the legacy trading system onto the new platform, you will be playing a key role in running, maintaining and further enhancing our systems and improving our trading franchise.
As teams have End-to-End ownership and responsibility, the team is responsible for delivering a stable and fit-for-purpose FX trading service, including both the functional- and technical support as managing the security of the applications. You will be exposed to various demanding stakeholders and third party applications, thus providing opportunities for professional and personal development while putting to good use the knowledge and experience you have accumulated so far.
Nice to have
