Being a leader and lead engineer in one of our most innovative engineering areas of ING!


We are looking for an IT Chapter Lead who is passionate about functional programming and IT Security. Does building a real time fraud detection platform and building highly secure and scalable API’s sound interesting to you? Please read on!


As a chapter lead, you are responsible for managing and inspiring a chapter of 8-12 engineers. Your main task is to enable your engineers to grow their mastery and get a little bit better in what they do every day. In the other 50% of your time, as a lead engineer you set the example, share your knowledge, drive innovation, voice your opinion and deliver as a squad member.


Next to that, you are part of the IT fraud & Cybersecurity leadership team. Together with the other chapter leads and the IT area lead we develop our vision and execute our strategy to inspire our engineers to grow and drive technological innovation. We don’t do that on our own, but we do this together using a global modular architecture with other tribes!

Managing your chapter means actively working on the development of your engineers through continuous on-the-job coaching and 1:1 conversations. Creating a development plan and monitoring it together. Finding the true purpose of your engineers and enabling them to grow in what they love to do and are good at to find that win-win situation for the engineer and ING.


Part of your job is to work as a DevOps engineer in a squad of around 7 engineers. In addition to this there will be a product owner who decides on the priority of the user stories and works as an analyst in the squad. Each squad has their own purpose and delivers value for our customers. What you build is also what you operate! You will see your own code work in production and will solve any issue arising with it together with your team. As an IT chapterlead within our tribe you have freedom. Freedom to grow, freedom to improve, freedom to make your own technological choices.
