About HSBC Over 229,000 people working together across 67 countries makes us the world’s leading international bank. We’ve always been where the growth is. Connecting customers to opportunities is part of our heritage. Our future is continuing to help businesses thrive and economies prosper; helping people fulfil their hopes and realise their ambitions. This is why we’re all here.

HSBC Technology in context

Over the next two years, we will be investing US$15-17 billion* to fuel our growth through technology and to transform our technological capabilities to make banking simpler, better and faster for our customers. There will be complex financial and data challenges along the way which will put the brightest and boldest technology problem solvers to the test.

Being one of these means collaborating as a global team of expert technologists. Together, you’ll build platforms that support 38 million customers, run more than c. 6,300 services and embrace agile working to shape our future and transform the banking experience.

HSBC Technology provides you with the opportunity to be a part of a truly global, genuinely human bank. It’s a chance to be you and to be heard. To set your own path as you transform ours at the forefront of innovation. Working here means helping a progressive, diverse organisation improve financial services for good.

Our Graduate Programme

A world of opportunities and the freedom to create your own. Our two-year rotational programme will see you developing solutions at the forefront of technological advancements. Cloud. Cybersecurity. AI. Data. These are just some of the technologies you’ll work with. This is how you’ll improve the way we serve customers. It’s how you’ll transform us and our future.

Your role

Make technology work harder to make life simpler. Find ingenious ways for it to make banking better, faster and easier for customers. Keep their money safe and data secure.

This will mean building relationships across Technology and the bank, getting to know the business and understanding how technology can progress it. Sometimes, this will demand hands-on involvement in designing and developing the solution. It could see you overseeing production of that solution and working directly with the end user. Whatever role you take on, you’ll have the mix of technical and interpersonal skills necessary to get the job done.

Our technologists solve problems by innovating. You’ll touch on everything, from cybersecurity to data to cloud to artificial intelligence. What you do here is all about finding new ways to apply the latest technologies. To push the boundaries of what’s possible. To be curious and experiment. To deliver better every day and never stop learning.

This will equip you with the impressive technical capabilities and core leadership skills you need to progress. Where they take you will be up to you. Whichever path you decide to pursue, know that we’ll empower you with a wealth of learning opportunities, including providing support through our Technology Academy.

In time, you could progress to become a member of our Global Technology Leadership team. This means where you go next will be directing where we go next.

We’re looking for top talent

True technologists are innovative and curious. You’ll combine a thirst for knowledge with the resourcefulness to seek it out, be that in others or elsewhere.

We particularly want to hear from:

  • Innovative and creative thinkers who challenge themselves and each other, push the boundaries of thinking, share knowledge and explore new ideas
  • Analytical problem-solvers who can overcome complex challenges using data and logic
  • Collaborative people who work with colleagues and clients to achieve their goals
  • Commercial minds who understand anything we do is about improving something for our customers

If you have a passion for tech, your career here will be all about indulging it.
