Job Description

Technology & Information Function Overview

We have recently merged our separate technology and business intelligence teams to form a Technology & Product (T&P) function, led by our first Chief Information Officer.  We have invested heavily in our infrastructure and technology capability, enabling us to deliver innovative solutions and deep insight market intelligence to our clients. Through harnessing the latest tools and technology, we allow the business to work faster, more intelligently and we are uncovering more and more business opportunities as a result. We are also continuing to build a world-class product team which will help take Third Bridge to the next level, and beyond. 

We aim to hire talented, creative and versatile people that help us grow and make our products better.

Engineers are the backbone of the Platform team, and the role is critical to the successful delivery of technology solutions to support the various Third Bridge customer-facing business units. Under the leadership of Principal and Senior Engineers, they will work collaboratively with product owners, business analysts and other team members and will play a key part delivering high-quality technology solutions - built and bought - to support the commercial objectives of those businesses. They work within a team on the full solution delivery lifecycle from selection to support in complex business domains, including contributing to solution design and technology selection. They are happy to work with and learn new technologies, tools and approaches. 

Engineers work within teams to design, develop, test, deploy, document and support solutions - sometimes taking responsibility for specific technical components or for elements of solution design. They generally work under the direction of senior engineering staff and collaborate closely with other engineers and non-engineering stakeholders - e.g. BAs, UI/UX designers - in order to deliver their work. They are pragmatic, understand risk and are able to make reasoned choices in the way they deliver their work.

They will network across the whole of Third Bridge and in the wider technical community. When necessary they will work with trusted third parties to design, build and deliver technical solutions.

  • Work to follow the best practices, standards, appropriate implementation choices, communications and approaches defined within the Third Bridge Platforms team

  • Ensuring the work you deliver is complete, consistent, meets all required quality standards, and delivers functional and non-functional outcomes as agreed 

  • Foster a collaborative environment - work together in an efficient manner, and share lessons learned with colleagues

  • Continually develop your own skills and knowledge

Qualifications

  • Demonstrable ability to write code, tests, documentation and other artefacts necessary to deliver solutions to time, quality and budget constraints

  • Demonstrate appropriate experience in technical solution delivery ideally in organisations of comparable domain, size and complexity to Third Bridge

  • Demonstrable ability to work as a part of small and varying teams of individuals with diverse backgrounds, skills and levels of experience
