Your team
• You will be working within Markets and Securities Services – also known as the ”investment bank”, where technology is central to all aspects of their business – for example electronic trading in the financial markets.
• The team of approx. 4-6 develop applications for a diverse set of FX (Foreign Exchange) services for financial institution clients:
◦ FX Prime Brokerage services to the alternative fund manager industry.
◦ FX Hedging services to Asset Managers.

Your role
• This role involves being Technical Lead for approx. 4-6 full stack developers for “Global Intermediary Services” (GIS) IT.
• Their systems are Java, deployed to Linux and with SQL RMDBS in some cases. Front-ends use a combination of Angular, React and other Javascript libraries;
• You will be hands on and technical in this role.
• You will have overall responsibility for the Krakow development team. You are expected to meet in the office an average of at least once per week. You are expected to network and encourage your team to collaborate with wider Poland teams.
• All teams in GBM IT teams are moving their systems towards smaller micro services including their (average 100-150 micro services running) – this allows “pods” of developers to work on their service, they can release small changes more frequently and more safely (this team release to production daily) and ultimately get working software in the hands of their users and clients as soon as possible. They also use agile development practices and tooling to develop their systems iteratively.
• These are high volume financial markets systems – which means that efficient performance, scalability and design are key aspects of your technology role.
• They are Dev Ops – your team is responsible for all aspects of developing the system – this may mean automating testing or deployment or making sure the live systems are instrumented so the team can support them. In GBM IT if something doesn’t work or causes problems you are empowered to fix it.

• You will be passionate about the software you deliver and want to take responsibility for all aspects including production service. They are developers but ultimately, they own what they build and that means taking it in turns monitor the live system during the working day (shared with their colleagues in London) and very occasionally they may need to deal with issues out of hours.
• Split of daily tasks: 60% programming vs 40 % team leadership
