The Apac Private Banking and Investment Banking business need to be able to ask questions of their data set that today cannot be answered. This is essentially a greenfield Big Data project to provide the business with the ability to answer those questions.

Examples of questions include :
  • Target client identification and acquisition across APAC division
  • Target portfolio advisory offerings with full integration with the digital private banking platform
  • Risk management strategies/concentrated risk analysis

You will be expected to contribute to every aspect of the full stack delivery process. Where the process involves talking to customers, analysis of data, design, writing tests, shipping code, ad-hoc support ….. Ownership.

The culture is very much developer led, every team member writes code, and the belief is that small teams deliver the most productivity. If you are in the team you have a seat at the table and all seats are equal.

Pairing is encouraged but not mandated. The project would be considered Agile but will unlikely fit a documented methodology like scrum, xp, etc. Self-governing teams find what process suits them best and it is rarely the same across different projects.

  • The customers are in APAC.
  • There are strict regulations relating to certain aspects of the data availability.
  • The existing architectural landscape is vast, diverse and has varying degrees of legacy status.

Open to discussing flexible/agile working.
