Job Description

Do you want to work in an innovative environment with enthusiastic colleagues? Are you a team player interested in staying up to date with the newest technical trends? Then join us at Ortec Finance as a Junior Application Manager.


What do we have to offer?
Ortec Finance develops and hosts applications for pension funds, asset managers, banks, housing associations, and municipalities to assist them in financial decision-making. We sell and support these solutions globally. In the Netherlands, we are currently experiencing a shortage of affordable housing. Ortec Finance helps housing associations assess what kind of housing to develop and build. Perhaps your first apartment is built or renovated based on a decision proposed by one of our products!

Our Cloud and Solution Support team is responsible for the rapidly growing services of Ortec Finance. We provide support and advice to our business and development teams. As an Application Manager, you will primarily provide support for customers, business consultants, and software developers in the Real Estate departments. If a problem occurs with one of our products, the Client Servicing Teams will reach out to you.

You will work with many different (cloud) techniques to offer Ortec Finance customers the best in terms of performance, continuity, and security.


Your activities and responsibilities include, among others:

  • Onboarding of customers
  • Onboarding of newly developed applications and application features
  • Coordinating workflows for end-users with the technical specialists
  • Learning about- and maintaining our state-of-the-art private cloud services
  • Facilitating test environments for Business and Development departments
  • Scripting and automating application deployments

Ortec Finance has a Cloud Native Technology strategy, meaning in the long term, we will provide you the opportunity to gain knowledge and contribute to our Cloud Native services in the context of Ortec Finance's applications.

Ortec Finance serves a global market. To support our international offices and customers, you will occasionally run a (part-time) standby duty. Our team will prepare you for these tasks.


What’s in it for you?
We offer you a challenging and rewarding role in a growing company, while being part of an inspirational global business with a lot of opportunities for personal and professional career development.

The salary range is between 50.000 and 55.000 EUR gross per year (excluding variable pay, but including 13th month and holiday allowance), dependent on your role, competency profile and experience.


In addition to a competitive salary, we offer you excellent benefits, including:

  • Hybrid working, meaning working at the office, with the possibility to work partly from home
    (of course you’re welcome to work every day at the office) – our main office is in Rotterdam, beautifully located overlooking the Nieuwe Maas near Blaak station and we have a roomy Amsterdam office under two minutes’ walk from Sloterdijk station.
  • An open and informal work environment (Active staff association, annual ski trip, staff social events, annual summer and Christmas party and much more) with inspiring and enthusiastic colleagues.
  • Opportunities to develop yourself with a training program as well as weekly research and knowledge meetings.
  • The prospect of a permanent contract, because we strive for a long-term collaboration.
  • Fixed 13th month, 8% holiday allowance, participation in a bonus scheme (based on achieving pre-determined set of KPI’s, a bonus of 12% of the annual salary can be earned), participation in the pension scheme, commute, and business travel allowance, working from home allowance,
    27 vacation days and the possibility to buy more.


Who are you?
Like all teams within Ortec Finance, we value honest and open collaboration. We maintain a safe and supportive atmosphere, and we enjoy creating products we are proud of. Open, lively, and direct communication is key. Owning your work, having a pro-active attitude, and showing dedication, energy, and ambition will get you far within Ortec Finance. We understand that application management is a team effort that benefits from diverse roles and backgrounds. Diversity and inclusiveness are both top priorities here. An analytical mind is certainly a benefit here. And naturally, you identify with our core values.

In addition, the following aspects are important:

  • You have a bachelor’s or a master’s degree. The Operations department has a diverse educational background, such as Public Administration, Engineering, Chemistry, Data Science, Economy, Econometrics, Physics, Math and Astronomy.
  • Affinity with cloud techniques and scripting is a benefit but not required.
  • An intrinsic motivation is more important than work experience for this position.
  • Command of the Dutch language is a pre.


Who are we?
Working at Ortec Finance means working somewhere else. It means working in a world where colleagues meet, gather knowledge and where likeminded peers are always willing to help each other. Where the organizational culture is friendly, flat and non-political.

Working at Ortec Finance also means working in a continuously innovating world where science, academics and mathematics dominate, since models are key in helping Ortec Finance’ clients with complex financial decisions. Because that’s what we love: giving our clients the best advice possible. Where the daily job is very in-depth, based on evidence and relevant for society. It means a job that matters. Where the learning curve is steep; we learn something new every single day. And we need to, because continuous innovation is key. Especially in a fin tech world. We don’t necessarily follow all conventions. Because yes, we are a bit rebellious too.

Ortec Finance is the leading provider of technology and solutions for risk and return management. It is our purpose to enable people to manage the complexity of investment decisions. We do this through delivering leading technologies and solutions for investment decision-making to financial institutions around the world. Our strength lies in an effective combination of advanced models, innovative technology and in-depth market knowledge. More at www.ortecfinance.com
