We’re a financial services company with a tech mindset that runs throughout the business, setting us apart from others in the industry.

Are you the right fit?

  • You see opportunities to innovate and disrupt where others see obstacles and hurdles. You tell others how they can do something rather than telling them why they can’t.

  • You can convince, explain and reassure people at all levels, from business managers to developers.

  • You have an appetite to learn and enjoy the challenge of doing things that haven’t been done before (data streaming, machine learning). You apply rigorous engineering sense to deliver robust business servicing applications.

  • You’re not afraid to challenge the status quo.

Success profile

  • A passion for learning and innovating 

    A lot of what we do is new, so you’ll learn by immersing yourself in the wider community, developing yourself and your team along the way.

  • High quality work 

    We work in a rapidly changing business, so you’ll need a focus on delivering high quality work at a fast pace. Doing the right thing quickly is good; quick and dirty just won’t cut it.

  • Team player 

    We have a ‘wade in and help’ mindset in Cyber. You’ll thrive on getting stuck in. You’ll give your own opinions, share your experiences and perspectives, and listen to those of colleagues. In doing so, you’ll learn and help others in the team learn from you.
