Your team

NIBC is currently in the midst of an Agile Transformation journey. This transformative journey is a strategic initiative aimed at preparing NIBC for future challenges and opportunities. It ensures that we are well-organized to enable the ambitions of both our clients and NIBC at a faster pace while also ensuring we can meet our increasing regulatory obligations. Additionally, with this initiative we aim to create even better cooperation and cohesion between different teams and departments within NIBC.

NIBC as IT employer

NIBC is evolving from a financial service provider to a digital company in banking. We share a forward-thinking, can-do attitude with our clients, which we call our “THINK YES” mentality. Whenever our business departments identify a market opportunity, NIBC IT follows up quickly to satisfy our clients’ needs. IT aims to be one of the driving forces behind the digital transformation of our bank, an ongoing process that will profoundly change the relationship with our clients and the way we do business. We are closely connected, have few management levels and short lines of communication. If you have a good idea today, you may be executing it tomorrow.
