ING Direct is a fairly new financial institution that offers insurance, banking, and assent management. ING stands for International Netherlands Group. ING was first founded in 1991 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
It expanded its banking to North America in 1997 when ING Direct Canada began. In Canada they offer Savings accounts, Tax-Free Savings Accounts, Mortgages, Retirement Savings plans, Guaranteed Investments, Mutual funds, Business accounts, and No-fee daily checking accounts.
It was another 3 years before ING crossed the boarders into the US and set up its United States headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware. The institution is a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
Just because ING Direct is a virtual bank it doesn’t mean that they don’t still need people helping process the transactions. Instead of having tellers that meet customers at a window to help with things like balance inquiries, withdraws, and deposits, ING has a variety of people to assist with this process.
One such position is the Customer Service Workforce Associate. These highly skilled people answer phone calls and emails relating to questions about accounts. They are there to assist the customer when he or she needs answers. It is their job to make sure all the customer’s questions are answered in a timely manner.
The ACH associate also helps customers in a different manner. This person is responsible for the daily reconcilements of the ACH (automated clearing house) and EFT (electric funds transfer) transactions. You’ll process both incoming and outgoing transactions as well as returns and notifications of change.
There are also positions such as sales, desktop engineer, web developer, application architect, graphic designer, risk management, café sales associate, fraud prevention protector and profile developer. Since ING Direct is located in only a few cities nationwide relocation may be required to take one of these positions.
