You work in Embedded Research. What does that mean in concrete terms?

On the one hand, we support client acquisitions and projects in the same way as classic consultants do; on the other hand, we are the zeb unit responsible for creating and further developing various market models and studies.

What do you like most about your role in Embedded Research?

For me, the Embedded Research department combines the best of two worlds: client proximity and scientific work. I can assist in various client projects as part of a team while continuing my university-style way of working, since a large part of my everyday work revolves around developing models and studies.

Were your expectations of the bachelor welcome program at zeb fulfilled?

My expectations of the program were met completely. During my time as an Analyst, I was able to gain valuable insights into everyday consulting work and knowledge of the banking industry. I was treated as a colleague from the very beginning and was quickly assigned responsibility. These experiences help me considerably during my Master’s studies.

Consulting | Former Analyst
Kollegin von zeb lächelt in die Kamera

Why did you decide to join zeb directly as an analyst?

My Bachelor’s degree was very theoretical, and I always wanted more practical relevance and career orientation. After my last exam it was immediately clear: first work, then study some more. The Analyst program offers an ideal link-up between a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree as well as education and career.

Every day, I look forward to seeing the other staff members at the office. Moreover, I get to meet new colleagues on quite a regular basis. Communication between the different office locations and between the different career levels is absolutely hassle-free.

Financial Control & Strategic Planning | Senior Consultant
Kollege von zeb im Anzug lächelt in die Kamera

What surprised you most about zeb?

The programming language Scala that we use in our project. Because I didn’t know it before. Scala is very much based on category-theoretical structures, which particularly appeals to me as a trained theoretical mathematician.

Software Solutions | Senior Consultant
Kollege von zeb im Anzug lächelt in die Kamera

What do you like most about your role as a software developer?

I particularly enjoy the independent way of working and the variety of challenging technical and banking-related tasks. I also like the appreciative and collegial environment.

Software Solutions | Senior Consultant

What are your responsibilities in the corporate functions?

As a graphic designer in the Design team, I am responsible for a variety of tasks, such as creating animations and social media posts, designing the layout and coordinating the printing of studies, or planning and organizing photo shoots. Every day is a little different and often brings new challenges that require creative solutions.

Design & Languages | Senior Professional
Kollege von zeb im Anzug lächelt in die Kamera

What was the most exciting task/project so far and why?

My current project. We are designing an application that evaluates the sustainability of commercial borrowers in the three dimensions of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).
I enjoy dealing with the topic of sustainability, which is becoming increasingly important. The same goes for the collaboration with colleagues (also external ones) and the client.

What do you like most about your role as a cloud operations engineer?

The work in the SaaS team is incredibly varied! In addition to technical tasks and the optimization of the AWS Cloud, topics such as the design of processes and the expansion of our IT Ops are on the agenda, but also the need to acquire new knowledge and deal with the latest technologies. The system monitoring and problem analysis are hands-on and give you the possibility to implement your own ideas to automate the operation in a professional way and for the long term. I get to use modern DevOps tools and provide input for the further development of the infrastructure.

Consulting | Senior Manager
Kollege Gabriel lächelt in die Kamera

What does a typical week look like for you?

Unlike in consulting, I hardly have to travel at all, which I really appreciate, since I have just moved to Münster and first want to settle down here. My tasks are highly varied, I work on larger projects such as designing a new pricing strategy for a bank, but also frequently on smaller market analyses or the further development of our market models.
