This is how you make a difference

We're here to Make Life Easy for our users - they want a smooth mobile banking experience. bunq needs to deliver on this by fixing issues before they affect them: not hypothetical/remote/academic scenarios, but actual business processes that have weak spots. Your role is to identify and assess weaknesses in bunq’s processes, then track and support their resolution.

Up for the challenge? Kick off your application by taking our assessment and find out if bunq is your perfect match!


As the bank of the Free, we're here to ensure that every user everywhere can have the best banking experience and their money are safe. You will take ownership of:

  • Risk and control assessments: you will be identifying, assessing, documenting and regularly reviewing operational risks fixing issues before they fail, solving problems before they happen, and keeping an eye out for what might go down next.
  • Key performance indicators: you will quantify operational risks, set risk thresholds, monitor risks vs the thresholds, report on breaches and coordinate remediations.
  • Risk incidents monitoring and reporting: if a disruption occurs, you will be the second pair of eyes making sure it is communicated immediately, issue is resolved and safeguards are in place so that it never happens again.
  • Corrective actions planning: you will establish, track, and steer our improvement loops, not only for bugs but also for all internal processes, ensuring that we keep all of our operational risk promises to our users.
  • Risk modelling: to make sure bunq put enough money aside to pay bills for restorations from operational disruptions you will perform scenario analysis and stress test for operational losses.

  • You solve problems by thinking, then acting.

  • You understand processes quickly, and implement new ideas thoroughly and orderly.

  • You can speak numbers.

  • You are an effective and quick communicator.
