We’re building the bank of the future, and we need your help.

Together we’ll make it possible…

Where does the role sit ?

A Lab is a co-located team working together on key projects to deliver value at pace by designing services that people find useful, easy and engaging to use. Typically, a Lab has a strong focus on problem solving in an agile environment where engineers are free to experiment and create innovative products which will transform the way our customers engage with us.

We’re passionate about providing innovative solutions to support our customers in managing their Business cash-flow efficiently. This underpins our role in Helping Britain Recover and ultimately Prosper.

A great opportunity has arisen within the Commercial Servicing Value Stream as a Software Engineer in the Cash managements and payments lab. You’ll collaborate with Product and other Engineering teams, driving efforts to create, build, support and improve our software. As a Leader within the Lab, you’ll champion quality Engineering practices that align with Architectural and Group Transformation strategies.

Here’s where you’ll make a difference:

Your contribution will be instrumental to our strategy of simplifying, modernising, and de-risking the Cash management and payments technology landscape, enabling the Bank of the Future and ultimately driving value for customers and shareholders. This is a key role at the financial heart of LBG, underpinning the long-term sustainability and integrity of the organisation.

Specifically you’ll:

  • Contribute to setting the strategic direction for application development within the team.
  • Ensure that software is built in a way that is consistent with the core Architectural frameworks, patterns and practices that exist across the wider Engineering community.
  • Work with Feature Teams, providing input for key solution design artefacts.
  • Be aware of industry innovation, and gain exposure to the knowledge required to provide solutions for complex business problems where no precedent may exist.

Our Software Engineers should have skills and experience that enable them to design innovative solutions in an increasingly digital world. Understanding how modern software applications are built and delivered is key.

In order to be considered, we would expect applicants to have the following skills / experience in any of the following :

  • 5+ years proven experience in Financial Services specialising in Payments and Cash Management.
  • Strong understanding of technical fundamentals – Integration middleware, API, Databases, GUI and Cloud.
  • Knowledge of Dev Ops Tooling would be an advantage: Jenkins / Maven / GitHub / Urban code / Dynatrace / Splunk and etc.
  • Experience of working with third party vendors / SAAS providers to implement the technical solution

In addition to the above you will also have:

  • Solid experience in developing low-latency, high availability and high performance applications
  • Working knowledge of HTML, CSS, Javascript and nodejs
  • Good experience in coding and testing applications using J2EE technology stack
  • Knowledge of REST / SOAP API’s
  • Sound understanding of agile Development practices, DevOps pipelines, continuous integration / deployment and Test Automation, GHE Source code Management and the E2E software development lifecycle
  • Work closely with the Business analysts and Product Owners to ensure requirements are clearly defined and acceptance criteria’s are met.
  • Understanding of Cloud methodologies and experience designing applications through containerised microservices-based architectures.
  • Good knowledge of infrastructure and security architecture practices and concerns
  • Be willing to be part of production support rota to coordinate/provide solution for the resolution of incidents.

In terms of personal skills, you’ll want to be a keen and comfortable communicator who is happy working with a wide range of technical and non-technical colleagues.

Our continued commitment to helping Britain prosper means that as a colleague you can make a difference to customers, businesses and communities.

Together we can play a part in shaping the bank of the future, whilst the scale and reach of our Group means you’ll continue to have opportunities to learn, grow and develop.

We’re focused on creating a values-led culture, and our approach to inclusion and diversity means that we all have the opportunity to make a real difference, together.

As part of the Group’s commitments as a result of ring-fencing legislation, colleagues based in the Islands are required to be exclusively dedicated to the non-ring-fenced bank and its subsidiaries. These colleagues would therefore not be able to undertake roles for the Ring Fenced Bank from their existing location and would need to consider relocation when applying.
