Within the Investments & Data Technology department, the Investments Bespoke Solutions (IBS) team develops custom applications to drive our core business processes. Every day, millions of euros flow through IBS developed systems. Examples are applications for instrument ranking, for investment portfolio rebalancing and for evaluation of investment opportunities. The team consists of 20 software engineers who have successfully developed several key applications over the last few years. Our cloud solution architect enables the teams to do their work as autonomously as possible.

For each team we have an experienced product owner. They all have a strong future vision and can translate it to our daily work (backlog).

We currently work in 4 scrum teams and aim to be as agile as possible. This means that we have adopted a DevOps way of working. New applications are deployed in Azure and are cloud native by design. Microservice architecture is combined with concepts like Domain Driven Design and principles such as CQRS and Event Sourcing. We make use of APIs to expose data to other teams or expose data within state-of-the-art Vue.js web frontends. Automated testing is an integral part of our development strategy.
