DSW heeft 387 terabyte aan data. Jij zorgt dat we daar wat mee kunnen.

ETL specialist

Bij DSW willen we onze keuzes onderbouwen, bij voorkeur met data. Om fraudeurs op te
sporen, goede afspraken met zorgverleners te maken en om onze klanten optimaal van
dienst te kunnen zijn, is het van groot belang een goede structuur aan te brengen in al onze
data. Is jou dit op het lijf geschreven? Dan hebben we een plek voor je in ons Data &
Analytics team.


In dit team krijg je veel vrijheid om te komen tot een optimale dataverwerking, je hebt daarbij
een scherpe blik op de datakwaliteit in onze bronsystemen. Je bouwt mee aan ons
datawarehouse en aan de losse datamarts en zorgt samen met onze BI-developers en data
scientists voor hoogwaardige fraudeonderzoeken, dashboards, rapportages en machine
learning modellen. Je staat als geen ander voor kwaliteit en straalt dit ook uit. Door het slim
combineren van databronnen binnen en buiten het bedrijf draag je bij aan de verbetering van
processen. Misschien zorg jij voor nieuwe inzichten die onze fraudedetectie nóg beter
maakt? Bedenk jij straks een winnende cloudstrategie, of maak jij data voortaan real-time
beschikbaar?


Wat het ook wordt, je begint bij het begin en dat is, uiteraard afhankelijk van de ervaring die
je meebrengt, het inwerken in de tools en de data, om daarna je tanden te kunnen zetten in
complexe vraagstukken. Je komt daarbij direct terecht in een ervaren, enthousiast en
slagvaardig team. Intensief samenwerken met je teamleden en met collega’s van
verschillende afdelingen is essentieel. Je maakt effectief gebruik van de juiste software én je
gezonde verstand om samen tot nieuwe datagedreven inzichten te komen.
Zie jij jezelf al in bovenstaand plaatje?

● een WO-opleiding afgerond in een exacte richting

Quantitative Researcher

Can you solve this puzzle?

An ant leaves its anthill in order to forage for food. It moves with the speed of 10cm per second, but it doesn't know where to go, therefore every second it moves randomly 10cm directly north, south, east or west with equal probability.

  1. If the food is located on east-west lines 20cm to the north and 20cm to the south, as well as on north-south lines 20cm to the east and 20cm to the west from the anthill, how long will it take the ant to reach it on average?
  2. What is the average time the ant will reach food if it is located only on a diagonal line passing through (10cm, 0cm) and (0cm, 10cm) points?
  3. Can you write a program that comes up with an estimate of average time to find food for any closed boundary around the anthill? What would be the answer if food is located outside an defined by ( (x – 2.5cm) / 30cm )2 + ( (y – 2.5cm) / 40cm )2 < 1 in coordinate system where the anthill is located at (x = 0cm, y = 0cm)?

Het tweejarig programma van het DNB traineeship kent een unieke aanpak; het gaat bij DNB om de beste leerervaringen voor jou en daar passen we jouw plaatsingen op aan. Hierbij houden we rekening met je opleidingsachtergrond, ambities en capaciteiten. In twee jaar tijd werk je op drie verschillende afdelingen telkens voor acht maanden en steeds in een andere functie. Je leert hierdoor meerdere kerntaken van DNB kennen, zoals het toezicht op financiële instellingen, de werking van het betalingsverkeer, resolutie of monetair beleid. Vaak ga je tijdens het DNB traineeship aan de slag als toezichthouder of beleidsmedewerker en in elke functie draai je mee op de afdeling en krijg je eigen verantwoordelijkheden. Dat kan vanuit vele verschillende perspectieven, bijvoorbeeld vanuit financieel en operationeel risico, data, kwantitatief of bestuurskundig perspectief. Je werkt vaak in een multidisciplinair team met experts vanuit verschillende terreinen. Samen werken jullie aan antwoorden op complexe vragen, bijvoorbeeld op het gebied van FinTech, nieuwe toezichtwetgeving, klimaatrisico’s bij financiële instellingen, cybersecurity of de huizenmarkt. 

Trainees die jou voorgingen werkten onder andere aan:

  • Internationale overleggen voorbereiden en president Klaas Knot briefen.
  • Het ontwikkelen van een dashboard met de CO2 voetafdruk van de beleggingen van verzekeraars en pensioenfondsen en daar het gesprek met instellingen over aangaan.
  • Een onderzoek naar de mate waarin kwetsbare groepen mee kunnen komen bij een steeds digitaliserende betalingsverkeer.
  • Evalueren van DNB’s eigen MVO (duurzaamheid) strategie.
  • Een analyse over gevolgen van de introductie van de digitale euro op de winsten het risico van DNB.
  • Een analyse van de beheersing van klimaat en milieurisico's door banken.
  • Het toetsen van markt- en kredietrisico modellen door langs te gaan bij nationale en internationale financiële instellingen.
  • De rol van card schemes (Mastercard en Visa) op chartale dienstverlening van banken.
  • Een onderzoek naar de rol van contant geld in verdachte transacties.
  • Een gecombineerd DNB-ECB data-analyse project over het effect van klimaatveranderingen op energie derivaten.
  • On-site integriteitsonderzoek bij trustkantoren.
  • Het opzetten van de klimaatstresstest.
  • Bijdragen aan de ontwikkeling van beleid en regelgeving gericht op het voorkomen van de betrokkenheid van financiële instellingen bij witwassen en terrorismefinanciering.

 

Als trainee krijg je veel ruimte voor opleiding en ontwikkeling, onder andere door inhoudelijke opleidingen en vaardigheidstrainingen. Maar ook via het persoonlijk ontwikkeltraject. Soms doe je dit individueel, maar vaak ook met je medetrainees. Samen doorlopen jullie een intensief en vooral leuk traject, waarin jullie elkaar beter leren kennen en elkaar kunnen helpen of advies kunnen geven. 

Hier doe je dat

Bij DNB werken we aan vertrouwen en financiële stabiliteit. Wij zijn de centrale bank van Nederland en houden toezicht op de financiële sector. Je kent ons vast als zakelijk en professioneel. Dat klopt, we nemen onze verantwoordelijkheid en werken nationaal en internationaal nauw samen. Wat je misschien nog niet weet, is dat de medewerkers van DNB erg trots zijn op hun werk, dat de sfeer intern informeel is en dat er ook veel jonge collega’s werken. Je past bij ons wanneer je je thuis voelt bij mensen die scherp, open, betrokken en betrouwbaar zijn, en die dit uitdragen in wie ze zijn en wat ze doen.

Bij DNB werken we hybride. Ons kantoor in Amsterdam is onze thuisbasis, de plek waar we elkaar ontmoeten, waar we met elkaar kennis delen en (samen)werken. Tegelijkertijd is er ook voldoende ruimte om een werkplek en -tijd te kiezen waar we ons werk het beste kunnen doen en waar we zo veel mogelijk waarde kunnen toevoegen. En natuurlijk zorgen we dat je ook thuis uitstekend kunt werken met laptop, telefoon en een goede thuiswerkplekinrichting.

Dit breng je mee

Een goed analytisch vermogen is belangrijk. Daarnaast ben je leergierig, nieuwsgierig en breed georiënteerd. Je leert snel, neemt initiatief en geeft niet op bij tegenslag. Ook ben je gericht op samenwerking. Je legt makkelijk contact en bent communicatief vaardig.

Waar zijn we verder nog naar op zoek?

  • Je hebt je academische master uiterlijk op 1 september 2022 afgerond.
  • Alle studieachtergronden zijn welkom. Bijvoorbeeld studies als economie, finance, econometrie, natuurkunde, wiskunde, rechten, politicologie, bestuurskunde en studies met een niet-financieel en sociologisch karakter. Uiteraard is het wel belangrijk dat je affiniteit hebt met de kerntaken van DNB. 
  • Je hebt maximaal twee jaar werkervaring.
  • Je beheerst de Nederlandse en de Engelse taal op minimaal B2 niveau; de voertaal binnen DNB is veelal Nederlands. Doordat we werken in een internationale context communiceer je als trainee regelmatig in het Engels.
     

Dit bieden we je

Een 36-urige werkweek met werk midden in de financiële en economische actualiteit. Bij een heel diverse, betrouwbare en maatschappelijk betrokken werkgever, die voortdurend inspeelt op de veranderende eisen van onze omgeving. En die doorlopend innoveert. Dit biedt jou volop kansen je verder te verdiepen en nieuwe ervaringen op te doen. In Nederland, maar ook daarbuiten. Als trainee start je met een contract voor twee jaar. Bij goed functioneren en wanneer de omstandigheden niet wijzigen is er uitzicht op voortzetting.

De overige goede arbeidsvoorwaarden die horen bij deze functie:

  • Een salaris van € 3.394,-- bruto per maand, op basis van een 36-urige werkweek.
  • Een 13de maand, 8% vakantietoeslag berekend over 13 maanden en een vrij besteedbaar persoonlijk budget van 5,9% van je 12-maandssalaris.
  • Pensioenopbouw op basis van middelloon met voorwaardelijke indexatie, eigen bijdrage in de premie 6,54%.
  • Een volledige vergoeding van je ov-reiskosten voor woon-werkverkeer.
  • Veel mogelijkheden jezelf door opleiding en training zowel vakinhoudelijk als persoonlijk te ontwikkelen.
  • Een goede balans tussen je professionele en je privéleven.
