What will your impact be as Domain IT Lead


NN Belgium is looking for Domain IT Leads for our IT organization with a passion for driving IT change, while ensuring flawless service of existing solutions. The Domain IT lead will focus on how to deliver new integrated digital solutions for an NN business domain, starting from the existing installed base and leveraging an appealing IT Strategy and architectural runway.

An IT domain consists of multiple scrum teams and is responsible for an end-to-end business chain of multiple applications.

With a view on the overall strategy, keep a close eye on value creation for your business domain and ensure that commitments are respected

  • Collaborate with peers and co-workers that deal with security, architecture and operations to guide and support you in this journey
  • Set and monitor meaningful targets, KPI’s and metrics to assess the “performance” of applications and the services of your agile teams. Support your teams in their efforts to continuously improve quality and focus on business assurance and value creation
  • Guide your fellow Domain colleagues in creating a company-wide IT landscape that is capable to support NN Belgium’s business strategy
  • Report to the IT Delivery Manager (owning the IT budget for your business Domain), and collaborate with a People Lead for sourcing matters and people development

  • Doing the extra mile for customers and users, because you care
