Your day @ RiskQuest

Risk Quest 8 sr 750x600
  • Start of the day
    08:30  -  09:30
    After a beautiful bike ride through the city of Amsterdam to our office at the Herengracht. I start the day with a cup of coffee, having a chat with colleagues and checking my e-mail.
  • Meeting: Day Start
    09:30  -  10:00
    Time for the first meeting of the day, the day start. During this meeting we discuss the tasks that every team member is working on, together with general updates regarding the project. The project that we are working on is the development of a Loss-Given-Default (LGD) model for non-retail clients.
  • Coding
    10:00  -  12:30
    Time to do the real work and start working on the code for the LGD model, in specific the calculation of the observed LGD. During this project I mainly use the programming languages SQL and Python.
  • Lunch
    12:30  -  13:00
    Because we are located in the centre of Amsterdam there are numerous options to score a good lunch. Today I pick an option from our own ‘RiskQuest menu’, which is a list of the best places in the neighbourhood.
  • Technical meeting
    13:00  -  14:00
    In the afternoon I have a more technical meeting with different stakeholders to discuss updates on a important risk driver that we as modellers require for the LGD model.
  • Development of the model
    14:00  -  17:00
    I use the rest of the afternoon to further develop the LGD model in close collaboration with my colleagues, including coding and a methodological whiteboard session.
  • Game of Ping Pong
    17:00  -  17:30
    When I am at the office at the Herengracht I always like to play a game of ping pong in our backyard. After losing against Emma, it is time to go home after a fun day… despite the loss.

The colleagues of Risk

The thing I like most about RiskQuest is the way in which we work. Everyone is prepared to walk the extra mile when required, but there is also time to have fun together. “Together” is basically the key aspect that describes RiskQuest best for me, which obviously makes it a very pleasant environment to work in.
