We are building a development function to continuously improve the existing stack of applications and systems under the ownership of Risk & Trading Technology. Projects undertaken by this Continuous Improvements group will be many and varied and will mean that in joining this team you will gain exposure to a wide variety of applications, development approaches and technologies. We have an opportunity to look at our existing estate and to find ways to add value through optimising, automating, re-architecting and through the addition of new features.
Is this you?
You have spent years using agile practices to deliver world class software. You are a Kaizen creature who never stops thinking about how to improve yourself and your team.
When hardware fails, your applications keep going because they are fault tolerant. When the company grows, your applications scale right alongside. Customers enjoy using your applications, because they are reactive and always perform well.
You understand that building the ‘right thing’ is as important as building the ‘thing right’, and have leveraged test-driven techniques such as ATDD to achieve both. You believe that software quality is the responsibility of the whole team, regardless of job titles.
You understand and embrace the philosophy of Continuous Delivery. You have no interest in throwing your work ‘over the wall’ to anybody. Instead, you passionately believe in an agile, DevOps-centric team that builds, tests, releases and operates its own applications.
