Req #: 170090932
Location: London, ENG, UK
Job Category: Technology
Job Description:


We have a strong belief that the future of our infrastructure is on the cloud. As part of this vision we have already begun building the ‘bridge’ to access public cloud in addition to a private cloud for specific workflows. Significant engineering challenges remain in 1) driving the architecture of our public cloud and enabling the best possible developer experience allowing teams to focus on building world class financial applications 2) assisting our developers migrate existing to the cloud and build new applications in a cloud native way.

To assist in both these challenges we have established a Cloud Engineering function with responsibility for leading these architecture activities in close partnership with the developer community. Within this small organization we require a number of experienced people to be our CIB Cloud Engineers. This is a critical role and will lead to significant transformation across the CIB.

As a Cloud Engineer, you will work with the Software Engineering community to enable applications to migrate to the cloud.  This includes interactions throughout the migration, starting with cloud suitability and business case, design, and all the way through to implementation. 

Success for this role is defined by a simple criteria: what business value did we enable via cloud adoption, and did we advance the quality/stability/control of our environment and the developer efficiency.
