Your role

You will be working in an interdisciplinary team that develops the software the Investment Bank relies on to process millions of trades being done daily.

Is clean code something you strive for every day? Do you have fun spotting things that can be improved (and then tackling them)? Do you take pride on being a Software Craftsperson?

We're looking for someone like that to:
– be part of a Scrum team working on delivering business value through Software
– analyze business requirements and design solutions
– collaborate to refine user requirements though Specification by Example (SBE) and Behavior Driven Development (BDD)
– implement changes in the system by following good programming principles
– collaborate with other global IT teams (and sometimes travel there)
– assist production operations team in roll-out and support-related matters

Your team

You’ll be working in a Krakow based team of 5-6 people that develops a suite of applications that comprise Securities Clearing & Settlement and Corporate Actions systems in Group Technology. The systems are the backbone of the bank, supporting the trade lifecycle in our Investment Bank. Members of this team work closely with their Operations team partners to provide global solutions for varied challenging business requirements.
Our team cares deeply about continuous improvement of the development process through automation. We use Continuous Integration for quick feedback cycles and are currently working on achieving Continuous Delivery. Collaboration is highly valued and pair programming is common practice.

We use Scrum and apply Agile practices. You'll have Software Craftsmanship at the heart of what you do, striving for quality and efficiency through automation.

We value continuous learning and encourage attendance at Conferences (GeeCon, Devoxx, etc) and internal Hackathons and Developer Meetups. There is also considerable formal and informal opportunity to learn financially how a bank works.

Your expertise

You have:
– strong experience with Java programming
– clean coding and refactoring skills with great problem solving ability

– hands-on experience with Agile practices, like Continuous Integration and Test Driven Development (you do TDD as if you meant it!)
– the willingness to strive for continuous improvement
– a profound appreciation for testing and experience in writing all levels of tests
– the craving for learning and the disposition to share knowledge and collaborate
– great communication and interpersonal skills

Nice to have:
– experience of event driven architectures
– experience of Oracle database development
– interest in distributed systems and writing resilient software

You are:
– imaginative and creative, ready to try new things
