ING is looking for an Associate, Business Development

Think Forward! Our purpose is to empower people to stay a step ahead in life and in business. We are an industry recognized strong brand with positive recognition from customers in many countries, strong financial position, omni-channel distribution strategy and international network. If you want to work at a place with lots of freedom to innovate, where we believe that you can live by the Agile manifesto without jeopardizing the necessary continuity, compliance and QA measures, where we are committed to deliver stable and secure services to end users, and where we have a 'no nonsense' getting-things done mentality, please read on!

As an Associate, Business Development you will be tasked with building a pipeline of data-driven algorithmic products for the ING Wholesale Bank – the arm of ING that serves large corporations, multinationals and financial institutions. This is an entrepreneurial role with a global mandate in an innovative team that is scaling up significantly.


A day in the life of the Associate Business Development

As Associate, Business Development in London you obsess about how you can use Artificial Intelligence to positively impact the Wholesale Banking sector. You engage with business leaders, employee innovators and clients as you seek to articulate the next big data driven algorithmic product and size its potential financial opportunity. You continuously scan the Fintech ecosystem for partnerships that can help accelerate prototyping and eventual product development. You demonstrate your thought leadership on how Artificial Intelligence can be applied within Wholesale Banking at relevant conferences and events in order to attract world class employees and partners. No two days are ever the same. You might: Start off the day with a run through and prioritization of emails with potential ideas and requests to meet from employees, clients, vendors and potential Fintech partners, which you have to prioritise and filter. Then, run a workshop with a team that has been thinking about an idea and help them work it out into a concrete AI challenge. You go for lunch with the hot AI Fintech using voice data to predict trading behavior you spotted coming out of a top London Accelerator. After lunch you might support the Director of Business Development with your insights on how best to size an opportunity and set metrics to measure progress on a particular prototyping process. This evening you are presenting at an AI meet-up that attracts the best AI minds in the city and you still have to get your slides finalized…

What department?

ING’s purpose is to empower people to stay a step ahead in life and in business. In a future that is digital and personal, this results in the following strategic priorities:

  • Earn the primary relationship
  • Develop the analytics skills to understand our customers better
  • Increase the pace of innovation to serve changing customer needs
  • Think beyond traditional banking to develop new services and business needs

WBAA’s purpose is to build and deliver algorithmic data-driven products that benefit ING’s clients and generate revenue for the bank. WBAA therefore addresses all ING’s strategic priorities.

The team of 55 (and rapidly growing) consists of data engineers, data scientists, business developers and initiative leads. It has proven its ability to deliver value through “lighthouse” products and a number of products co-developed with Fintechs. The team plans to grow significantly in the next years whilst expanding its international footprint.

WBAA has a global mandate within ING Wholesale Banking - an organisation employing 11,000 people in 40 countries. Within the team we limit hierarchy, ensure short communication lines and an entrepreneurial spirit within a division of ING that has not yet fully executed on ING’s technology driven strategy. This leaves much room for personal development, own ideas and experimentation. It requires flexibility, a can-do attitude, entrepreneurial spirit and stamina as we are pioneering in almost everything we do.

Job description

As Associate your primary task will be to support the Business Development Lead in the initiation of strategic product development processes. This entails the following: .

  • Closely follow developments in Artificial Intelligence including the fintech ecosystem
  • Maintain a regular and constructive dialogue with internal stakeholders
  • Identify, evaluate, and prioritize opportunities for future products
  • Manage validation and prototyping exercises (supported by a UXer/Frontend Developer and Data Scientist).
  • Partner and co-develop with Fintechs when required
  • Define and articulate the value proposition of future products
  • Hand-over to product delivery squad when the product has been proven viable, feasible and desirable

Do you recognize yourself in this profile:

  • University level education with a Master degree in Business or Economics
  • 3- 5 years of relevant work experience within corporate banking, or relevant sector, including international deal/project execution experience
  • Strong analytical skills and creative problem-solving abilities. A successful candidate should be able to conceive how advanced analytics can be applied within the Wholesale Banking context to add value and how Fintech partnerships might accelerate that process.
  • Comfortably able to enthuse, engage and appropriately address both traditional senior bank executives wearing a suit and progressive “Generation Y” audiences, project contributors, investors and start-ups in jeans and sneakers
  • Self-starting attitude, strong communication skills and organisational sensitivity.
  • Ability to manage internal processes and stakeholders effectively in a context where processes still have to be defined.
  • Affinity with big data, artificial intelligence, advanced analytics and technology within the financial services sector.
  • Preferably some demonstrable experience dealing with technology start-ups.
  • Written and spoken fluency in English

What do we offer?

Working at ING means working in a dynamic and international setting. Individual development of our employees is very important and that is why ING offers excellent courses and programs. You will become a member of the Wholesale Banking Advanced Analytics team, a prestigious, no-nonsense and high-output data-science team. Diva behaviour is not tolerated, neither is underperformance.
