  • Identify and build relationships with senior leaders to influence and enable the implementation of your strategies
  • Supporting the management of key stakeholders in the business, and also 3rd parties we partner with
  • We’re moving to utilise cloud for many of our applications, so you’ll be heavily involved in our move for this area of the business
  • Form part of one of our feature teams to define and drive their architecture, assist in daily delivery activity and defend your recommendations at senior architecture forums
  • Educate both technical and non-technical colleagues about DevOps topics and articulate reasoning behind key technical decisions

  • Experience in Banking domain is a must with experience of working in Faster Payments scheme, BACS payments scheme and Image Clearing System.
  • A good understanding of Git, source code management and managing change.
  • Knowledge and experience of agile development practices, continuous integration and test automation (e.g. TDD, BDD, Selenium).
  • Knowledge of java development standard methodologies and patterns with an understanding of how to craft low-latency, high-availability and performant applications.
  • Technical understanding of: Spring boot, Maven, GitHub, Jenkins, JSON, Kafka, WMQ, REST APIs, Database SQL, Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Experience working on any one of the cloud-based tools - IBM Cloud Private, Google GCP, MS Azure, Amazon AWS.

  • Write modular, well tested applications that remain easy to maintain as the codebase and business continues to scale
  • Significantly contribute in delivering the strategic solutions for Payment applications
