Unique job opportunity for newly graduated IT master students!

Architect Greenhouse is a three-year program that allows IT graduates to grow into IT architects and Software Engineers through a mix of practical experience and academic education. The intention is to enable you to contribute to DNB's development of future banking products and services.


You will become part of one of Norway's largest and most innovative IT environment, and after completing the program you will have gained the necessary skills and competence to work as an IT architect.


This is a permanent position in DNB where you get:

  • Hands-on programming experience in different languages (Python, Java, Swift, ++)
  • Architectural experience in projects spanning across variety of technologies (Cloud, Machine Learning, Big Data, Open APIs, Agile Application development ++)
  • International experience by working abroad with our strategic partners
  • Post-graduate education in collaboration with the University of Oslo
  • Mentoring from our most experienced IT architects with focus on your personal and professional development

Who is a DNB IT architect?

DNB is more than just a bank – we also have ambitions to become one of Europe's leading technology companies. The role of IT architects is central to the future development of the bank and its IT solutions used daily by millions of Norwegians.


An IT architect is a person who communicates, designs, and lays foundations for new and improved IT services. DNB's IT architects have a comprehensive overview of our entire technical portfolio and a good understanding of the bank's operations. IT architects follow the development from an early idea phase to a final deployment and are often involved in discovering and solving technical problems to ensure successful implementation.


Another important task is to keep up with new technologies and trends that can contribute to further development of the business and innovation of new services and products.


Do I do this alone?

In DNB, we place great emphasis on developing sustainable solutions by diverse teams. In addition, a critical success factor is our mentoring scheme; you become a part of an exciting and knowledgeable IT environment, where you get personal follow-up of the best IT architects in the bank, as well as daily follow-up of experienced developers.


How can I be able to work as an IT architect with so little experience?

An important part of the program is to give you the skills and know-how you need to become an IT architect. Therefore, we have tailor-made our own IT architecture program together with UiO. In addition, through participation in project work, you will gain the hands-on knowledge required to become a skilled architect.


So, who am I?

You are a recent IT master graduate or have a maximum of one-year work experience in total, and you are genuinely interested in programming. Which programming languages you prefer does not matter, as this can be anything from Java, .NET, Python, Swift, Kotlin, JavaScript, React, etc. And more importantly, that you are eager to develop further and see yourself taking responsibility for tasks that go beyond programming in the future.


So, what else can DNB offer me?

  • Working in-house in modern facilities in a good workplace where we focus on continuous professional development of our employees
  • The opportunity to attend conferences both in Norway and abroad
  • Good terms of employment with competitive salary, and perks like best in class travel, health insurance and good pension scheme
  • Flexible working hours, extra days off and reduced working hours from May to August (summertime)
  • Full salary during parental leave and illness
  • Access to DNB cabins across Norway and in the mountains of eastern Norway and France
  • Discounted agreements with Sats and the possibility of training during working hours


NB! Please make sure that your attachments such as diplomas uploads properly, as some candidates have experienced technical issues.
