Project description

Group Technology’s Risk CTO team is looking for an experienced IT professional with experience in Enterprise Architecture and modern technology (Cloud, Big Data, AI). We are modernizing our application portfolio and migrating to Azure in one of financial service’s biggest cloud migrates to date. We are seeking the rare mix of a person who is passionate about technology, committed to exceeding the expectations of our clients, and can speak to developers and business executives in their own language.

Our Investment Bank is one of the world’s top global investment banking and securities firms, providing a full spectrum of products to institutional and corporate clients, intermediaries, government and hedge funds worldwide. By combining your talent and our strengths, we can achieve great results. We can offer you an exciting, fast-paced working environment, a culture of mutual respect and teamwork and the opportunity to play a vital role in our growth.

Your tasks

The role encompasses a broad set of accountabilities. Core responsibilities include:

  • Translate the business vision and strategy into the technology landscape.
  • Work with Group Risk Control, the front office, and technology stakeholders to elicit, agree, document and communicate target-state architecture.
  • Develop technology architecture standards and promote their adoption within Risk.
  • Maintain current and target state architecture.
  • Help assessing competing technology solutions from different vendors and make recommendations.
  • Improve tech and engineering culture of the App Dev teams e.g. by setting up working groups to ensure bottom-up buy-in into IT strategy.
  • Understand, support and enhance Agile work practices such as small cohesive teams, team empowerment, automated CI/CD, MVP concepts, hackathons.
  • Drive convergence of Group Risk's architecture from its current state to the target state, and drive adoption of UBS Group architecture standards.
  • Dive into an unfamiliar codebase to get familiar with the code and provide advice on making improvements.

o JVM: Scala, Java, or Kotlin

o Python

o R

o .Net: C#, Asp.Net, Blazor, etc.

o Web: Html, CSS, Javascript, and Typescript

While you only need to know two of the above languages, we would like for a candidate whom can familiarize themselves with any missing ones quickly. A basic ability to read them, run an existing codebase, and making reasonable changes (Google-driven development) will be necessary.

  • Advise on how we can leverage new technologies in the area of big data, ML, reporting, visualization, analytics, etc.
  • Promoting and validating the adherence to Minimum Enterprise Requirements through the lifecycle management process.
  • Maintaining our strategy involves the ongoing collation, consideration and validation of significant inputs from business stakeholders, vendors and developers alike. The CTO team is required to successfully lead all parties to a conclusion that fully considers business, technical and financial implications. This requires a highly skilled architect who can establish the merits of the differing inputs, broker agreements and maintain acceptance across a range of interested parties.
  • The core personal attributes required in the role include:

o Driven, resilient and hardworking

o Team player who is experienced working without direct line management responsibilities and proactively seeks new ways to add value to IT and our business partners

o Excellent verbal & written communication and influencing skills across all levels of the organization, especially senior levels

o Able to concentrate on major deliverables and not get lost in the detail

o Ability to effectively delegate work to team and broader Risk IT colleagues

o Able to quickly build a network and leverage the network of others

o Self-aware, self-critical, curious, and collaborative

We are looking for software developer (hands-on, problem solver, technical expert) l to be able to:

  • collaborate on proof-of-concepts, pilots, minimum viable products, business cases and quality control
  • communicate to and influence stakeholders

  • build and maintain applications in an Agile environment using Kubernetes & Azure Cloud
  • document the provided resolutions

Understand, support and enhance Agile work practices such as small cohesive teams, team empowerment, automated CI/CD, MVP concepts, and hackathons. Dive into an unfamiliar codebase to get familiar with the code and provide advice on making improvements.
