Bank Mendes Gans (BMG)
Bank Mendes Gans is part of ING and is the only bank in the world to engage exclusively in liquidity and information management solutions for Fortune 500 multinationals like Facebook, Huawei, Samsung, Micheal Kors, Versace, Groupon, McDonalds, Ebay, Duracell and Dow Jones. We operate a bank-independent model and we handle most of the world’s convertible currencies. We don’t compete with your local banks - we cooperate with them. We work multi-currency, multi-country and multi-bank. This allows for a smooth implementation of your liquidity management strategy. Especially if your company has decentralized management, subsidiaries in different countries, different legal and tax regimes, and a large number of bank accounts, bank relationships and banking systems. As we offer overlay solutions on top of existing local bank infrastructure, there is no need to change banks.

Agile way of working
At BMG delivery we work Agile in DevOps squads whom are fully responsible for their application from A to Z, this means that feedback and fast learning is a critical part of your day to day job. We believe that feedback is essential for growth and put high value on effective feedback skills. We have an open culture to facilitate this and short lines to ensure support for valuable feedback. This requires that you work intensely together with your college's inside and outside your squad.
The Spider/Messaging team works on a service bus application which makes sure that every message goes from A to B in a highly reliable manner; "Once and only once". Due to the nature of the application we touch almost all functional events/flows within BMG, this requires fast learning and adaptation skills. It is also highly critical for BMG as all payment streams and FX deals go through this system and as such high QA standards are fundamental. We are using the Azure DevOps pipeline for our daily work and are at the moment piloting a move to Azure Cloud. The application has been completely rewritten in the last 2-3 years and is made ready to run in a K8 environment. We are a team that is always looking ahead to see which technology is beneficial for our purpose. The next steps in the coming years for the application is using K8, Reactive programming and Function as a Service (FAAS). As such we are looking for someone who is eager to learn and experiment within a complex environment as BMG.
