Each day, you'll be helping us understand, define, design, engineer, integrate, test, deploy and improvethe best parts of our home-grown digital ecosystem to delight our human or robot consumers.
You're going to help us automate fundamental components with the broader bank, using open-source technology as a bias, and integrate them with the first -class development tool chain being delivered by your colleagues as part of the bank's transformation to a fully digital-native enterprise. Most importantly you're going to work with our technology and business clients to make sure we don't disappear into an ivory tower and deliver unusable product.

You understand Java annotation and know how to use it to do dynamic process and abstract common logic to decrease duplicate code.

You're the kind of person that enjoys puzzles, logic problems and gains satisfaction from solving problems, likes communicating what you've discovered to your colleagues and clients in plain English, rather than encrypted acronyms, and working with your colleagues in co-located high-performance teams.
You'll be excited at being at the inception of a high-performance environment, and you'll enjoy being pushed technically and organizationally to do things the right way as part of a world class brand.
Ultimately, if you're the kind of person that
