An IT architect is a person who communicates, designs and lays foundations for new and improved IT services. DNB's IT architects have a unique overview of our entire technical portfolio and a good understanding of the bank's operations. IT architects follow the development from an early idea phase to a final deployment and are often involved in discovering and solving technical problems to ensure successful implementation. Another important task is to keep up with new technologies and trends that can contribute to further development of the business and innovation of new services and products.

Do I do this alone?
