Join us as a Software Engineer

  • This is an opportunity for a technically minded individual to join us as a Software Engineer
  • You'll be working with new and innovative technology to deliver high impact solutions
  • Hone your existing software engineering skills and advance your career in this critical role


What you'll do

You'll apply widely agreed software engineering principles and methodologies to design, develop, test and maintain applications and services to achieve the stated business and technology goals within required budgets and timelines. We'll also look to you to oversee the quality of work, making sure that it meets the technical standards for all services output.

You'll also:

  • Support the design and development of reusable libraries and application programming interfaces for use across the bank
  • Support the design and development of software that is amenable for a greater automation of build, release testing and deployment process on all environments
  • Support the reuse and sharing of platform components and technologies within the software engineering teams
  • Deliver software components to enable the delivery of platforms, applications and services
  • Write unit and integration tests, in automated test environments to ensure code quality


The skills you'll need

You'll need a background in software engineering, software design or database design and architecture, as well as experience of developing software in a SOA or micro-services paradigm. You should also have development experience in a programming language, experience of using industry recognised frameworks and development tooling, and a background of implementing programming best practice, especially around scalability, availability and performance.

If you have experience of cloud technology, and delivering in an agile program, this would be a distinct advantage. You'll also need to be proficient in Python coding and have a strong numerate background.


    You'll also need:

    • Experience of test-driven development alongside the use of automated test frameworks, mocking and stubbing and unit testing tools
    • Knowledge of the key phases of software delivery lifecycle and established software development methodologies
    • Experience of working in an environment where products must be delivered to specific timescales
    • An understanding of how to translate product and business requirements into technical solutions
    • The ability to understand and support, modify and maintain systems and code developed by other engineering teams
    • An understanding of the basics of regulatory data, including capital, provisions and how banks work to assist with putting technical changes in context
                      If you need any adjustments to support your application, such as information in alternative formats or special requirements to access our buildings, or if you're eligible under the Disability Confident Scheme please contact us and we'll do everything we can to help.
