From faster platforms that make our trading teams more competitive, to new innovative ways for clients to interact with their money, our technology team changes the way we work – and often the way that our industry thinks. It’s why we invest so much in the technology that’s right for our business. It’s also why we’ll invest heavily in your development too.
What to expect
Great FinTech ideas wouldn’t become reality if it wasn’t for Developers: they’re the brains behind the designing, building, testing and maintenance of all our new systems. If you have coding skills, this could be the ideal route for you – but this isn’t just about being fluent in programming languages.
As a Developer, you’ll be at the heart of driving forward innovative solutions to complex banking problems, working as part of a highly talented team. If you want to create a new and better banking experience for clients, customers and colleagues, this is the place to start.
How you'll develop
Our clients and customers should expect nothing less than excellence. That’s why you can expect the very best training, development, leadership, mentoring and support to help you become the very best in banking.
The Initial Training Programme (ITP) will provide you with a strong foundation of technical and business knowledge to start building your career. Next, the Barclays Academies are your gateway to learning and development. They offer an extensive range of learning resources covering business specific skills, personal development programmes and leadership development. And our Digital Immersion programme gives all colleagues the skills to make the most of our expanding digital world.
What’s more, we want to understand and support your individual career goals. We offer various opportunities to gain professional qualifications – dependent on the programme that you join.
Who thrives here
For the developer pathway you simply need to be able to code in at least one language. A STEM degree would be ideal, but it isn't essential. You’ll also need a strong interest in technology, combined with the ambition to design and deliver the next technological breakthrough.
