Job Description

Backbase is expanding. There is no doubt that we have the best possible solution in our niche market. But if you think that winning over clients comes by itself, think again. It’s a tough process.

And let’s not forget your organising skills. Those skills, by the way, also come in handy when planning leisure time. Because if we send you to the other end of the world and overload you with work, we do understand that you might want to loosen up afterwards and explore the surroundings.
