IT Architect - Banking Services


Job Description

Want to challenge yourself with exciting tasks, while diving deep into the complex IT portfolio of Norway's largest financial institution?

We are looking to strengthen our IT Banking Services team with an experienced IT Architect. 

What's in it for you?

We have the pleasure of working with existing applications, critical for the Norwegian financial infrastructure, supporting more than 70% of DNBs current income base. Additionally, we work with new applications that will be a strategic advantage for the future. Strategic business development like the new mobile bank, FoundryVipps and BM Puls, are all powered by Banking Services' applications and data, through API’s built by our API team.

By joining our team you will have a real impact and a central role in bringing DNB towards the future. You will work in a team of skilled people who love to solve problems, share knowledge and think outside the box. This leaves you with a unique opportunity to develop your engineering skills as well as your business understanding.

We encourage all employees to broaden their horizons, develop their skills and learn new technologies, either through formal courses and training or by joining in on other teams' activities. As a DNB employee you will be introduced to a large internal job market, which is one of the reasons so many people stay with us for several years, changing positions and responsibility over time.

What will you do?

In addition to keeping the bank up and running at all times, we are responsible for technical upgrades and modernization and need to be challenged in the way we do banking. As long as you are a skilled developer, comfortable with coding in different programming languages, and able to put your technical skills into a business context, you will be a great asset to our team. Our Application Service teams take holistic ownership of applications through their entire lifecycle, from feasibility study and design to operations. You will be part of a multisourced team of technically skilled colleagues that support and guide you through the complexity of our platforms and applications.

Our IT- Architect’s main responsibility will be to:

  • design good architecture solutions and communicate these solutions to the business areas and other stakeholders
  • be the main liaison between business and IT and have a central role in delivering solutions that are stable, secure and efficient
  • be the main advisor on technical issues, share your knowledge with others and ensure continuous improvement on technical issues

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a tech-enthusiast with background from complex IT environments. We would like to increase our staff with curious and creative people who understand the need for innovation and change, while at the same time being responsible and securing stable operations at all times.

We are looking for someone with several years’ experience within software engineering. You have strong knowledge of agile methods and a solid understanding of development processes. You have competence on mainframe and distributed plattforms. You are also comfortable communicating in English (both written and verbal).

Don't exactly fit the profile, but still feel you got what it takes? Get in touch. We are looking for diversity, people with the right mindset and passion to deliver.

What we offer: 

  • Competitive salary terms
  • Modern office with great cafeteria and other facilities
  • Flexible working hours
  • Challenging career opportunities
  • Personal and professional development through attending conferences and trainings
  • Favourable pension schemes 
  • Personnel bank with favourable discounts and interest rates 
  • Competitive insurance policies
  • Resorts available for employees in Norway and abroad
  • Sports, cultural and other activities outside of the workplace
