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
  • This role will primarily be home based working

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:

  • Design and develop reusable libraries and APIs for use across the bank
  • Design and develop software that is amenable for a greater automation of build, release testing and deployment process on all environments
  • Drive 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 strong background in software engineering, software design or database design and architecture, as well as extensive experience of developing software in a SOA or micro-services paradigm. You should also have experience of using industry recognised frameworks and development tooling, and a background of implementing programming best practice, especially around scalability, availability and performance.

Along with a keen interest in technology and a desire to further this, you'll be able to demonstrate C# experience. Cloud computing experience would be beneficial, particularly on Google and around Kubernetes, and Linux and Git experience would also be a plus.
 

You’ll also need:

  • Extensive experience of test-driven development alongside the use of automated test frameworks, mocking and stubbing and unit testing tools
  • 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
