As a Barclays Engineering Lead, you will be responsible to collaborate with multiple business aligned scrum teams to conduct performance-based testing, engineering, and monitoring activities. You will work with the scrum teams and members from a central Performance Engineering team to test the performance of the systems, documenting issues, and work with whomever it takes to identify root cause of any issues. The measure of success is preventing any significant performance problems from hitting Production at a large scale.

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.

What will you be doing?

Managing the delivery of change in the integrated technology environment and overall ownership of project delivery from an engineering perspective

Understanding the risk profile of change and ensuring that integrated testing is commensurate with that risk profile

Leading a team of ETL engineers and functional/non-functional testers and comply with risk management controls to ensure compliance and meet operational SLAs

Understanding the overall purpose of the projects and contributing to requirements & data analysis, and providing solutions

Providing approval and oversight to requirement documents as entry criteria to detailed design and development

Managing Product and compliance to processes and resource management across Product PODs

Participating in Roadmap planning, Backlog creation and Prioritization with Product Owners and Stakeholders

Exploring metrics across the product, collaborating with Tech Lead and Team Lead to derive team performance

What we’re looking for:

Proven project management skills, ability to deliver to time, cost, and quality parameters with pro-active management of risks, assumptions, issues and dependencies (RAID)

Sound stakeholder management skills

Excellent leadership and communication skills

Experience communicating technical projects to non-technical stakeholders

Skills that will help you in the role:

An understanding of contemporary distributed software development, including microservice /API-oriented architectures, Cloud, Python and Data Engineering

Excellent written and oral communication skills to write and present a range of written materials (presentations, briefings, reports) and to stakeholders in all global locations

Experience working in an Agile environment

Where will you be working?
