Job Type


Here at ING we are on our way to achieving ambitious plans and it's our people who will help us get there; who take it on, make it happen and are always a step ahead.

In line with this vision, we are looking for champions to deliver our strategy and redefine ING’s protection business making us the "go-to place for financial needs”.

The Vision

We believe in creating simple, personalised and transparent solutions that enable our customers to stay one step ahead in life and business. For protection this means stepping away from traditional insurance to predictive, personalised protection and services that match the life stage needs of our customers.

As a Joint Venture, Dare will deliver digital Bancassurance to ING customers. Working agile, both businesses will bring key assets to build simple, personalized and transparent protection solutions that enable our customers to stay one step ahead in life and business. For ING this means stepping away from traditional insurance to predictive, personalized protection and services that match the life stage needs of our customers.

To digitally deliver on this mission Dare will shape the market, building a scalable international platform that unifies multiple markets, creating one ecosystem of protection propositions and experiences across Non-life and Health, initially in 6 ING countries (DE, IT, AU, AT, FR, CZ).

We aim to crack the market - insurance has traditionally a low trust level and only <0.1% of customers across Europe are served via digital bancassurance.
