Credit Model Back Tester - Rabobank

Locatie: Utrecht Croeselaan

Imagine… having an impact on all the models that affect all of our clients. Do you have what it takes to be a first-responder? As a Credit Model Back-Tester, you won’t work on just one model. You’ll have a hand in testing the entire range of models that serve our customers and protect our bank’s depositors.

Making a difference

  • Practice your skills in communication and diplomacy by effectively sharing your observations with the modellers, which in turn improves their work.
  • Prove the added value of model monitoring by identifying flaws at the earliest possible moment.
  • Alert modellers to the challenging aspects of their work before too much time passes.
  • Contribute to a new team atmosphere and provide evidence of the importance of model testing. 

With each other
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Our team brings talented people together to accelerate modelling by identifying issues at the earliest stages. Your experience with modelling will be your guide as you examine a variety of models and ensure that they meet ever-changing market and regulatory requirements. As a Credit Model Back-Tester, you will practice patience and diplomacy, with team members like:

Sebastiaan, Team Lead: “We’ve developed this new team as a stop-gap to ensure that models stay fit-for-purpose. Imagine the dynamic atmosphere of a FinTech, but with the stability of a bank. We will work together with a focus on producing results. We will keep our promises with flexibility, endurance and patience. We will prove our value by increasing overall model quality over time.”

With you
If we were to ask your friends to describe you in a few key words, the answer would be: customer-focused, accommodating, positive, empathetic and eager to learn. For the position of Credit Model Back-Tester, you should also have:

  • A Master’s or PhD in an exact science (econometrics, mathematics, physics, engineering, astronomy or similar)
  • At least three years' experience in (credit) modelling/validation
  • Experience with Python and SQL is a plus
  • Practical experience with regulatory requirements (IFRS9, Basel2, TRIM, LGD, PD) 

Growing a better world together
Rabobank is a financial services provider for 7.1 million customers in 40 countries. But did you know that we are also working to make the world a better place? We do so in countless ways, such as:

  • Supporting risk-savvy models that ensure the right balance between business opportunities and appetite, to drive effective financial services.
  • Growing better models together, which enables the right customers to get the right support at the right time to pursue their dreams.
  • Ensuring that the models that are made, are made even better by your impact. 

Do you want to become the ideal version of yourself? We would love to help you achieve this by focusing firmly on your growth, development, and investing in an environment where you keep learning every day. We give you the space to innovate and initiate. In this way, we offer you numerous opportunities to grow and help you exceed your expectations, to do the right thing exceptionally well, and to therefore grow as a professional. In addition, with us (on the basis of a 36 hour working week), you can expect:

  • A gross monthly salary between €3148,16 and €7458,81 depending on your experience and Seniority.
  • A thirteenth month and holiday pay.
  • An Employee Benefit Budget of  your gross monthly salary. You decide how to spend this budget. This may include purchasing extra leave days, or making extra pension contributions.
  • Flexible working times and location-independent working.
  • 100% reimbursement of commuting costs if you travel by public transport. Do you still prefer to travel by car or motorbike? Then choose a home/work travel allowance.
  • A pension scheme, to which your contribution is only 5%.
