Technical Director (Commercial) Amsterdam

The job in short

Run your own fintech business, together with a Client Services Director and Delivery Director, and make sure Backbase delivers on its promises.

Meet the job

In this role you need your expert technical knowledge as much as your leadership skills.
You design customer-journey-driven architectures and lead multiple agile delivery teams. You take the lead until the moment the project is signed off and take pride in over-delivering.
No matter who you talk to, you impress with your technical knowledge and compelling presentations. You are on top of new developments and near-future demands, translating your project insights into product vision. You are constantly improving on the Backbase product.

Not only do you supervise the technical specifics, you also support and evaluate your team, verifying that the technical level is unprecedented. We work on a global scale, so frequent travel (20-50%) is part of the job.

How about you?

-You are an ace in IT and a strong leader.
-You have solid hands-on programming skills.
-Your expert knowledge is always up to date. We won’t have to tell you anything about application servers, databases, load balancers and other infrastructure components required to deploy modern applications.
-There are no secrets for you in the following: Enterprise Integration Patterns and Frameworks, Spring, Maven & Jenkins, Java platform, JavaScript frameworks, MVC patterns and principles of REST APIs, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and micro-services architecture.
