⛳️  Your responsibilities as Financial Risk Manager

  • Secure our new credit activities: You will ensure that we build a state-of-the-art credit scoring engine and you will monitor its performance over time. You will manage the credit portfolio, perform stress tests, suggest risk steering actions and produce all necessary information for risk reporting and accounting (inc. IFRS9). You will participate in the credit decision and provide your opinion on the largest credit files.
  • Strengthen the resilience of our operations: You will ensure that our operational risk management framework tackles the challenges brought up by our rapid scale-up, our constant product innovation and changes in our regulatory status. You will lead risk-reduction projects, framing and steering the work of colleagues across Qonto.   
  • Contribute to efficient asset-liability management: You will forecast our balance sheet evolution and structure over time. You will estimate our regulatory and economic capital consumption. You will use these insights to control our capital planning and asset-liability  steering decisions, to make sure we always remain within the boundaries of our risk appetite.  
  • Implement a risk monitoring and reporting framework: You will identify the data we need to meet our internal and external (i.e. prudential and financial) reporting requirements. You will set up the organization for meeting these requirements in time with the highest level of accuracy. You will set up and follow key risk indicators, and suggest risk-steering actions whenever needed.  


🥇 About You

  • Experience: You have 4+ years of experience in a risk management position within a bank or a Fintech supervised by a European regulator (n.b. consulting for a bank and/or Fintech also qualifies).
  • Mastery: You are a master in credit risk modeling (i.e. credit scoring, economic capital allocation) and in data science (i.e. SQL, Python).
  • Banking regulations and accounting knowledge: You have a good knowledge of banking regulations (i.e. CRR, CRDIV, French Arrêté du 3 November 2014, Basel II, III and IV) and of accounting standards (i.e. IFRS9).
  • Team player: You have strong project management, communication, and organizational skills.
  • Languages: You are native or fluent in English, French is a plus.
