To further design our IT landscape in order to be ready for the developments in the coming years we are looking for an

Enterprise Architect (26-40 hrs/week)

Help with the further development of the IT landscape and the strategic choices that underlie this. An agile and robust IT landscape that permanently matches and reinforces the bank's strategy.

There is an important task waiting for you that is not for everyone. Banking today is more than ever based on digital processes, both in the interaction with the customer and in the processing in the back office. At the same time, the financial world is constantly changing due to changing customer needs, new service providers, changing regulations and technological developments. This requires IT to continuously work on an IT landscape that facilitates our services, is safe and can be developed and maintained cost-efficiently. The architecture team within ICT forms the basis of the choices regarding the design of this IT landscape. Architecture provides insight into the relationship between the business strategy, the information provision and the ICT. In order to do this properly, as an Enterprise architect you are able to thoroughly understand the services of Triodos and to translate them into IT architectures. We do this f.i. by:

  • Scenario analyzes for future developments.
  • Drawing up clear reference and starting architectures.
  • Defining requirements and assessment criteria for product selections and PoCs.
  • Supervising various projects that create specific solutions to build up the landscape even better.

You also make a commitment to this when you report to the IT director.

This is you

You can expect the necessary freedom for such an important role. Freedom that you dare to take while continuously thinking 3 steps ahead with all kinds of developments in the market. As an Enterprise Architect you possess the necessary analytical and strong communication skills. You know exactly what role to assume during conversations with different colleagues. From technicians to directors, you know how to advance complex choice processes and create support by substantiating your arguments with concrete facts. This way you can convince your colleagues, also because you look wider than the rest. You also have:

  • Minimum HBO+ work and thinking level.
  • Good command of the English language in word and writing.
  • Wide experience with and a lot of knowledge about IT architectures and development in the field.
  • Conceptually strong thinker with a goal-oriented approach.
  • The drive to delve into the business models within Finance and to be able to establish the relationship between IT Architecture and developments within the financial world.
  • An extensive track record within the IT/Business architecture field.
