Business Analyst

Job Description

The Global Tax Reporting team is building a new middleware application (GTM) which will become the sole interface between our Core Banking and Tax Calculation & Reporting Applications. This will be an ESB application, so solid Java, XML and messaging skills are essential. Business rules processing will be handled by a rules engine component. The target state for GTM is to exploit and expose web services but in the interim term at least, we will need to interface to legacy systems using more traditional technologies such as Sybase, Perl, SFTP and flat files. We are building this application from the ground up, so we need to create our Continuous Integration Environment and establish our engineering practices such as automated build and test execution. The prevalent skillset in the existing team is database/sql development so an important element of the role will be to support these colleagues as they transition to a Java skillset. We have also embarked on an Agile transformation, so working knowledge of Agile practices (especially Scrum) would be a distinct advantage.


GTM is being built to deliver regulatory requirements for 2016 and beyond so this is a priority development, but all legacy interfaces will need to be migrated to it in time, and eventually all future interface development will be done exclusively within GTM. This is a genuine and very rare opportunity to get involved at the start of an exciting development which promises to transform the Private Bank’s capability to stay ahead of Tax regulations and ensure our on-going compliance.


The Environment

The candidate will be working in a team responsible for a single self contained project or within a work stream of a larger programme of work. Working closely with other team members and colleagues across the organisation, the candidate will be involved in all stages of the development life cycle from requirements gathering to post-release support. 


Candidates MUST have a track record commensurate with this opportunity, and a passion for creating large software systems. Our ideal candidate has the drive to make new software products and the sophistication and experience to make this a reality. Agile software development methodologies (Extreme Programming, Scrum, etc.) are used in the software development teams and the systems being developed are migrating to component and service based architectures.    The ideal candidate will be excited about working in a progressive development environment. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a team of highly talented engineers in a fun and challenging environment where learning and growth is supported and actively encouraged.
