In this role, you will work collaboratively in a global team and partner directly with stakeholders and end users to understand requirements, design solutions that you will then build, run and support. You will have the opportunity to work on a variety of project streams and will collaborate with a wide number of teams across COG Technology.  

If continuous learning and development is important to you, this opportunity will be your chance to learn and apply the latest technologies to deliver and maintain highly scalable, robust, secure and cloud native services on AWS.

Ideally you will also bring to the role:

  • development experience in Python, focussed on APIs (applicants with Java engineering experience are also highly considered)
  • problem-solving skills and the ability to independently propose new solutions
  • experience with development best practices - TDD/BDD, CI/CD (Git, Stash, Bamboo) and other DevOps concepts
  • understanding of data and data integration concepts (SQL, data governance, enterprise patterns).
  • hands on experience with cloud platforms ( AWS, GCP, Azure )

Other valued experience:

  • Containers: Docker, Kubernetes, Helm
  • Monitoring and observability /alerting: Splunk, Prometheus
  • Workflow management tools: Airflow, Workfront


Experience in financial services would be beneficial but not necessary, especially if you are a great engineer who is passionate about working directly with users to understand real business problems and use technology to solve them.
