Mainframe Developer

Be part of building the future! Risk is at the core of everything we do as a bank. We are motivated to transform the way we handle risks, and this is your opportunity to make a difference and develop yourself both personally and professionally.

You will be joining the Risk Tribe, where business and IT professionals work in cross-functional teams to strengthen the bank by proactively delivering analytics, data and services for robust Risk management. The teams are self-organized and empowered to make their own decisions while working on the end-to-end delivery of products and services.

You will be a member of a squad, which is responsible for systems that monitor risk related to various banking products like loans, guarantees, derivatives and geared investment portfolios. The team owns some very complex systems that have great strategic focus internally in Danske Bank and from the financial supervisory authorities in the different countries where Danske Bank is operating.

Tribe technologies range from in-house Mainframe applications to Cloud Native solutions supporting our business objectives. In your role as IT Software Engineer you’d contribute to building, supporting, modernizing a robust back-end for our business rules and data.

Large part of our code is written in PL/I language. We’d help you get up to speed with it. We also transition some functionality into Java/Spring and C#/.NET stacks. To let us do well and succeed in this role, you’d be a keen developer in some language and keep an open mind about stack your skills would be applied in.

"Awesome opportunity to apply your coding skills at scale!"

You will:

  • Analyze, and understand business requirements
  • Design and build code solutions for the problems
  • Document code you write
  • Research, understand, troubleshoot, refactor, and improve existing code

About you:

  • Solid experience with a programming language. PL/I or some C-like procedural language would be ideal for understanding most of our code, but other programming experience might work too
  • You know the building blocks of programs well: major programming paradigms (imperative, declarative), algorithms
  • Experience with IDEs (Eclipse based would be beneficial) and other dev processes and tools like version control
  • Experience in or willingness to work with Java/Spring, C#/.NET stacks for back-end development
  • Understanding front-end technologies would be beneficial. We use in-house frameworks you may need to work with occasionally and are also transitioning into React-based UIs
  • Great communication. As in any programming position, most of what you deliver comes from understanding the problems and turning them into solutions using code as a tool
  • Upper-Intermediate English language skills

We offer:

Monthly salary range from 4000 EUR to 6000 EUR gross (based on your competencies relevant for the job).
