Working on data & technology solutions?

At DNB, your work impacts financial stability and sustainable wealth. In addition to 600 tonnes of gold in the vault, we also harbour tens of terybytes worth of data: our new gold. Gold that needs to be mined carefully – which is where you come in. In our Data & Technology trainee programme, you are part of several teams involved in development, data and security. You work with other trainees and professionals, on various innovations and according to an Agile methodology.

For ambitious tech geeks

The Data & Technology trainee programme is intended for ambitious tech geeks with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. You are tech savvy, resourceful, result-oriented and proactive. You want to grow and consider it a part of your job to stay up to date with the latest developments. We welcome various academic backgrounds from the exact sciences, as long as you have affinity with data and technology and want to develop it within a financial-economic and social context.


What traineeship teaches you more about data, technology & finance?

As a Data & Technology trainee programme participant, you will take on three different roles at three departments in the space of two years.

  • With the SaaS, PaaS, IaaS and other hybrid forms.
  • At DNB, tailor made applications are being replaced by Cloud applications.
  • Maintaining a robust, reliable, safe payment service (deposit and cash), reserve management and tender operations.

  • Data solutions for data that is used as input for national and European statistics such as the balance of payments, financial accounts, monetary statistics and statistics for financial stability monitoring.
