Interesting job this one

You’d be replacing a core Technologist moving onto another project within the business. The gig is perfect for leaders of developers who want to code – this is hands-on work.

The role is within the R&D and development arm of a major end-user. You would (amongst other things) be consulting back to the business on technology, identifying gaps or opportunities, conceptualising technical products/platforms that evolve the business, leading those initiatives and then jumping into more vanilla execution teams to teach them how to do what you do.

This is a role that blends the respect for compliance that the large financial institutions legally must obey with the fearlessness in tech needed for a Fintech shop. You will find yourself in a high influence gig; in a business that wants your opinion; working with a team of very strong specialists. You will find yourself playing a mixed hand of futurist with infrastructure optimisation.

You’ll need some heavyweight experience behind you to be able to deliver in this one:
  • You’ll need those years you’ve spent as a technical architect in other environments.
  • You’ll also find yourself needing the technical leadership skills you’ve gained; to be fair this role will demand project leadership skills as well.
  • You’ll find that your colleagues/peers are stereotypically people who got bored in operational leadership roles because they’re tech geeks themselves.
  • Without a doubt, you will find yourself needing to manage business people who don’t grasp your world.
  • I’d expect you to need some sales skills as you drive your own concepts back into the environment.
You will need absolute confidence in your own tech skills:

Imposter syndrome exists; it’s fine to not know things but you’re core technical pain short term will be:
  • .NET Core – C#
  • ASP.NET Core with Razor
  • Azure – a variety of elements within the platform
  • You’re going to need either enterprise experience in that tech OR serious depth in your own personal work
It would help you immensely if you already understood:
  • Banking generally – at least, you will need some understanding of the challenges legal compliance brings
  • Continuous delivery
  • Agile – Safe or Scrum
  • API Architecture or full-on Micro Services – Docker/Kubernetes
  • OOP/DDD/Service Fabric
  • Broader Cloud experience outside of just Azure (not really NB but it would help you)
I’m comfortable having a confidential chat with you about this, I’m easy to find at .
