Keytrade Bank is a young bank, where all IT systems traditionally were developed in house. Currently Keytrade Bank is moving to a model where we focus on customer experience and innovative products, relying a bit more on off-the-shelf products and services for the basic functionality. We take this opportunity to refactor our systems following microservices architecture and Domain Driven Development.

Next to this technical transition, Keytrade Bank has moved towards a customised Agile organisation at all levels of the bank. The Product Factory (for delivery) contains autonomous Feature Teams split by business domain instead of technology. Autonomous means that each team has all the skills needed for its domain, IT as well as business. On top of that each technology has its own chapter to share and manage the technical experience.

Working in a small bank - especially in autonomous teams - is very different than working in a big bank. Responsibilities are much bigger, knowledge broader. We have a very high growth rate and we are looking for motivated people willing to become part of our dynamic teams to help improve and transform its existing trading and banking system.


You are a team player, always ready to share and discuss ideas in order to improve the existing, and to find solution for new projects. Everyone is acknowledged for their role, and we need people with a strong sense of responsibility in our teams.

You are able to work independently, dealing with tasks from early requirements analysis until final implementation and testing. You are open to interaction with your colleagues, able to reach out for help when required and open to accept or provide constructive criticism. You have an extensive knowledge of the technologies used at Keytrade Bank, and are eager to learn about trading and banking related matters, and also about new technologies. When it comes to programming, you are meticulous and orderly, without losing your pragmatic attitude.


We have a vacancy in TISA (Trading, Investment, Savings), which is responsible for our trading and investment platform.
