Data Scientist in the IRB Team

Do you enjoy data and modelling as much as we do? Are you fascinated by owning modelling solutions, which are used in the financial world? Yes! Connect with us at Danske Bank A/S!

Combine your data and maths skills and become an expert of our credit risk models for the Internal Ratings-Based (IRB) approach in Danske’s IRB team. The IRB team consists of approx. 30 employees working in Vilnius and Copenhagen with different educational backgrounds ranging from economists and regulatory experts to model specialists having mathematical/data expertise. What combines us is not only an informal atmosphere and a flat organisation but also a very close collaboration across geographic locations.

Most of your daily work will be related to data, programs and analyses in one or the other way, but the highest on the agenda are team efforts, development and empowerment. With a colleague as your buddy to support you during your first months, you will quickly gain responsibility, which will then enable you to perform different analyses and define solutions to our IRB credit risk models in production. As part of this, you will also collaborate with key stakeholders across the Group in order to obtain the necessary understanding and acceptance of the results as well as make the models appear transparent across all units.

The IRB credit risk models are of key importance to Danske Bank A/S. They are widely used across the whole Group and the key application is in the calculation of own funds capital requirements. The models are highly regulated by the regulators of the different markets and there is a heavy focus on strong governance, which ensures the high quality of the models in production.
