Quant Infrastructure Developer 

As a Barclays Quant Infrastructure Developer, you will have an exciting chance to help with existing and new projects. This includes all aspects of software development life cycle for more than twenty infrastructure components - technical analysis, design, implementation, testing, deployment, maintenance, and assistance. Moreover, you will ensure that all activities and duties are carried out in full compliance with regulatory requirements, Enterprise-Wide Risk Management Framework and internal Barclays Policies and Policy Standards.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, with 329 years of success, quality, and innovation behind us. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity – helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

We are currently in the early stages of implementing a hybrid working environment, which means that many colleagues spend part of their working hours at home and part in the office, depending on the nature of the role they are in. We’re flexible on how this works and it may continue to change and evolve. Depending on your team, typically this means that colleagues spend a minimum of between 20% to 60% of their time in the office, which could be over a week, a month, or a quarter. However, some colleagues may choose to spend more time in the office over a typical period than their role type requires. We also have a flexible working process where, subject to business needs, all colleagues globally can request work patterns to reflect their personal circumstances. Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.

•    Ensuring the quality of our infrastructure our infrastructure works

What we’re looking for:
•    Bachelor’s degree in computer science 
•    Good C# or Python knowledge and proven previous work experience
•    Windows system administration, and general networking knowledge and competence
•    Linux system administration and relational DB concepts knowledge

Skills that will help you in the role:

•    Experience in other programming languages

Where will you be working?
Our Prague office is part of the Operations and Technology Division, and as such, we try our best to stay at the top of our technological game. However, the technology itself is not the most important thing. What matters the most to us is the way our ingenuity can help provide better service to our customers and make life easier for our employees.
