The Markets and Security Services (MSS) Technology team is dedicated to supporting GBM by working in partnership with business leaders who rely on us for delivering innovative, robust, stable platforms to enable their investment and financial solutions for clients. If there is something in the way of us getting working software into the hands of our users, we step in and get it moving - whether that means doing some analysis, coding, testing or releasing. Everyone in our team does production support on rotation for a day per month, and everyone also releases code to production.
We are looking for people who are flexible in their approach and who are happy to try new things and experiment, and be comfortable in throwing experiments away to start again if they don't work.
A Day in the Life of a Full Stack developer include the following:
Work with other team members and liaise with nominated business stakeholders when required to ensure that business requirements are fully understood before commencing design and development.
Draw-up detailed technical designs for components in response to business requirements and high-level technical architecture
Implement best-of-breed technical solutions based on agreed technical design, adopting industry standard development patterns and methodologies (including continuous integration and automated unit and integration testing)
Fully test implemented solutions in advance of User Acceptance Testing
Assist (when required) with the deployment of components to development and test environments
Developers in our team are expected to own the end to end delivery of software from analysis through to release to production and support. We work in small iterative cycles and typically release software daily to production.
Everyone in our team releases code to production, everyone in our team raises production change requests, everyone in our team does production support. Everyone.
We are looking for people that are curious about technology and are happy to play. Some of the people that we are looking for will have played with Puppet, Docker, Clojure, Rust, Haskell, InfluxDB, Go... we don't use all of these right now but we value new points of view being put across all the time.
