Barclays have another job post available in Glasgow:
Senior Development Manager
Purpose of role
The role of Senior Development Manager is to manage development and delivery across multiple teams, providing a deep understanding of industry best practices born from significant experience of investment banking projects and managing medium to large sized development teams.
- Software Development Leadership
- Produce, review and track development plans.
- Manage task delivery to demanding time and budget constraints.
- Manage development issues, escalating when appropriate.
- Attend programme and project meetings representing Stockbrokers development.
- Undertake Peer reviews.
- Act as reference point for technical queries within Development area.
- Promote technical best practice.
- Coaching, mentoring and quality assurance of development team.
The successful candidate will have the product responsibility for all middle- and back-office (MOBO) applications supporting the Stockbrokers business: a mixture of vendor package solutions, vendor bespoke solutions and in-house bespoke applications. The technology underlying the applications ranges from Visual Basic, Access and “green screen” character terminals on the desktop underpinned by SQL Server, Ingres and a mainframe batch.
In additional to managing the on-going change and maintenance demand for the applications, a key aspect of the role is to drive the re-architecting of the MOBO infrastructure as part of a strategic architecture rationalization programme that is being initiated in the second half of 2012. Working in conjunction with Barclays enterprise architects, solution architects and other Wealth & Investment Management technology teams, the successful candidate will be expected to make a significant contribution to the architectural redesign and be responsible for its ultimate delivery.
Candidates will have a strong understanding of the trade lifecycle within an investment financial services environment, with particular depth in middle- and back-office operations. Ideally, the role holder will have experience delivering solutions on the Microsoft technology stack (VB 6, Access, SQL Server 2008), Ingres (Actian) and ABF on Linux and large scale mainframe batch processing platforms. Complete familiarity with the full software development lifecycle is expected.
Development Managers at VP level should have experience of managing multiple geographically distributed teams of 5-10 members in size. The successful candidate will be comfortable providing coaching and mentoring, setting meaningful objectives and providing constructive, timely and specific feedback.
