At a glance

ABN AMRO Clearing N.V. (AACB) is looking for a data scientist to join the Global Finance Data Science team. Do you want to be working in an ambitious data science team covering the financial markets and the clearing industry in an international environment? Thanks to our global network with offices in eleven countries and proximity to all major exchanges, you will serve the best trading firms on four continents.

Your job

As a data scientist you will work on multiple projects and do this with other Data Scientists in the team, where you will often take a leading role. Although we are part of the Global Finance department, our projects extend beyond the finance domain. For example, you will collaborate with colleagues from departments such as risk, operations, and commerce. In your work you will take care of the full development cycle. This includes the following topics:

  • Identifying and exploring new opportunities, including experimentation with prototypes. 
  • Building explanatory (time series) models for data-driven business understanding and decision making. Examples are driver analyses for cleared volumes or pricing analysis. 
  • Building predictive / forecasting models. Examples are liquidity and trade volume forecasting.
  • Building data pipelines of which the output can be used for our team (e.g. for feature engineering, or directly as input for models) or for colleagues to build dashboards on.
  • Ad-hoc statistical analysis for senior management.
  • Stakeholder management to make your projects a success, where stakeholders could be based in one of our offices in APAC, Europe, the US, or Brazil. 
  • Presenting your end-to-end data science solutions to a broad non-technical audience.
  • Translating business use cases where we can apply innovative models such as GPT/large language models. 

    The aim is to put models to production and for this we have supporting infrastructure to do so. With 6.2 billion transactions being cleared annually and with peak volumes of up to 51 million transactions per day, ABN AMRO Clearing produces a lot of data. In other words, lots of possibilities to do relevant and meaningful work for a data science professional. 

Working environment

ABN AMRO Clearing is the cornerstone of global financial markets. We are a globally active multi-asset prime broker, custodian and general clearing member (GCM). We provide execution services, clearing, settlement, custody, securities lending, reporting and financing services for listed derivatives, cash securities, over-the-counter (OTC) products, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), commodities and foreign exchange transactions. We provide services from our offices across Europe, Asia-Pacific, Brazil and the United States. Our coverage includes all major exchanges and execution venues. AACB enjoys market share of 20% or higher for many of the major exchanges on which it operates. As a result, AACB consistently ranks among the top three clearers in every time zone, based on turnover and market share.
