Join us as a Technology Governance Analyst

  • You’ll be supporting the platforms’ operational stability and technology performance, including maintaining any system’s utilities and tools provided by the platform
  • This is an opportunity to learn a variety of new skills in a constantly evolving environment, working closely with feature teams to continuously enhance your development

What you'll do

As a Technology Governance Analyst, you’ll be providing input to and supporting the team’s activities to make sure that the platform integrity is maintained in line with technical roadmaps, while supporting change demands from domains or centres of excellence. You’ll be supporting the delivery of a robust production management service for relevant infrastructure platforms.

In addition, you’ll be contributing to the delivery of customer outcomes, innovation and early learning by contributing to test products and services to identify early on if they are viable and deliver the desired outcomes. You'll also be working with stakeholders to assure the IT infrastructure elements of solution designs, making sure that any divergence from the bank’s strategy and standards is assessed for impact, and risk is managed.

Your role will involve:

  • Overseeing the adoption and lifecycle management of IT infrastructure products, making sure the products delivered are fit for purpose and catalogued for re-use
  • Driving the production and maintenance of product documentation that demonstrates compliance with our policy, and facilitates easy consumption of the products by customers
  • Managing and supporting decision-making forums, making sure the decisions taken are formally recorded, communicated and can be retrieved
  • Contributing to the platform risk culture, making sure that risks are discussed and understood at every step, and effectively collaborating to mitigate risk
  • Contributing to the planning and execution of work within the platform and the timely servicing of feature development requests from cross platform initiatives, and supporting the delivery of regulatory reporting
  • Participating and seeking out opportunities to simplify the platform infrastructure, architecture, services and customer solutions, guarding against introducing new complexity
  • Building relationships with platform, domain and relevant cross-domain stakeholders
  • Making sure that controls are applied and constantly reviewed, primarily against SOX, to ensure full compliance to all our policies and regulatory obligations

The skills you'll need

To succeed in this role, you’ll need to be a very capable communicator with the ability to communicate complex technical concepts clearly to colleagues, including management level. You’ll need a solid background working in an Agile or DevOps environment with continuous delivery and continuous integration.

We’ll also look to you to demonstrate:

  • Technical knowledge, including platform, technology, products and domains
  • Knowledge of relevant industry standard toolsets and processes to drive up customer service within an IT environment
  • An understanding of operational principles
  • Good collaboration and stakeholder management skills
