About this opportunity
This role sits in our Innovation and Emerging Tech team. We want to build a future where customers choose Lloyds because we regularly launch new products and services that make their financial lives better. This is a unique chance to join a team that celebrates curiosity, diversity and values creation!
We're looking for 'full-stack' Software Engineers to be part of a new Engineering Innovation team. This new team will be dynamic, versatile and adaptive, with a core purpose on research, experimentation and building prototypes, that could be deployed at scale across the organisation.
So, what would you be doing for us?
The exciting bit! As a software engineer in the team, you'll be primarily responsible for the design, build and test of engineering innovation experiments. You'll be directly responsible for writing and maintaining code base, and as such you'll have deep expertise in modern 'full-stack' programming languages and technologies.
You'll also demonstrate continuous personal development in new & emerging programming languages and technologies.
You'll be conversant in Quality Engineering (QE) and DevOps processes and technologies. As well as DBT and code execution, you'll also be responsible for crafting and maintaining appropriate user documentation.
You'll collaborate closely with internal partners across the Group's engineering and architecture communities, ensuring all our experiments maintain standards of engineering excellence and alignment to strategic technology direction.
This is a leadership level role and will blend both deep domain and technical expertise within a feature team and great passion for coaching and developing people in a "player-coach" model.
Why Lloyds Banking Group
From building a truly sustainable business to creating a place where people love to work, we need colleagues who are up for the challenge of our bold ambitions. Who are excited to push boundaries and make change happen. Together, we can grow with purpose.
What you'll need
A deep working experience across a range of 'full-stack' programming languages. It is not expected that you'll have all the technical skills listed below. However, you should be able to demonstrate you possess a range of these, at a proficient level:
Mid-tier, e.g., API, ReST, Web Server, SSO, IAM
Server-side & database, e.g., Java, C#, GoLang, Node.JS, Python, SQL Server, Cockroach, MongoDB
Mobile, e.g., Swift, Android
Core cloud platforms, e.g., Google, Azure, AWS
DevOps & CICD, e.g., Jenkins, Urban Code, Atlassian, GitHub, MS Team Foundation Server, SonarQube, Kubernetes
And any experience of these would be really useful
Practical knowledge on software development processes
Engineering experience working within an Agile framework
Systems design thinking and solution architecture
Practical experience crafting technical documentation
Collaboration; working effectively alongside engineering teams, technical specialists, product owners, vendors and partners. You can hold productive communications to ensure experiments are clearly scoped and implemented
Our focus is to ensure we're inclusive every day, building an organisation that reflects modern society and celebrates diversity in all its forms.
We want our people to feel that they belong and can be their best, regardless of background, identity or culture.
We were one of the first major organisations to set goals on diversity in senior roles, create a menopause health package, and a dedicated Working with Cancer initiative.
And it's why we especially welcome applications from underrepresented groups.
We're disability confident. So if you'd like reasonable adjustments to be made to our recruitment processes, just let us know
