Quants Infrastructure Developer 

As a Barclays Quants Infrastructure Developer, you will join the existing team and will 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 support. You will interact not only with the immediate team but also other teams within QA and IT and will also need to assist with and solve end user problems.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, established in 1690, with a legacy of success, quality, and innovation. 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.

At Barclays, we offer a hybrid working experience that blends the positives of working alongside colleagues at our onsite locations, together with working from home. We have a structured approach where colleagues work at an onsite location on fixed, ‘anchor’, days of the week, for a minimum of two days a week or more, as set by the business area (or nearest equivalent if working part-time hours). Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager. Please note that as we continue to embed our hybrid working environment, we remain in a test and learn phase, which means that working arrangements may be subject to change on reasonable notice to ensure we meet the needs of our business.

•    Interacting with Quants – supporting, working closely and delivering QA products
•    Leading the interaction with IT teams (QA clients), providing our products
•    Interacting with ProdOps teams – ensuring our infrastructure works

What we’re looking for:
•    Good C# or Python knowledge and proven work experience
•    Windows and Linux system administration knowledge
•    Good knowledge of continuous integration, testing, dependency management
•    Experience with Ruby/ Bash/ Python/ Powershell scripting, DevOps development approach and systems management and monitoring tooling (e.g., Nagios)

Skills that will help you in the role:

•    Degree in computer science
•    Multi-platform development (Windows, Linux) 
•    Experience designing/migrating/supporting technology solutions using cloud infrastructure (e.g., AWS)
•    Experience with Terraform, Cloudformation, Chef and web development (client/server side)

Where will you be working?
Our Prague office is based in the financial centre of Prague. We are 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.
