As a Barclays Senior Python Developer, you will be part of development team within the Project Eagle grading agile team, participating in all aspects of the development process, including regular interaction with Product owner, user story analysis, technical design, implementation, code-reviews, testing, production deployment, and support. This is an exciting opportunity to take ownership of end to end business delivery, and to shape a next generation Wholesale credit model platform.

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.

Liaising with a test team to provide support during SIT, QA and UAT test phases

Diagnosing and resolving of defects found during SIT, QA and UAT test phases

What we’re looking for:

Expert knowledge of Python with focus on Data science, PySpark and Pandas

Expertise in either Angular or React

Knowledge and competence of CI:CD (GiT)

Solid grasp of Agile development process

Skills that will help you in the role:

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.
