Job Description

We're doing things differently at Lloyds Banking Group with the help of new digital technology and we want you to be part of it. We know our work impacts the lives of millions every day. That's why LBG has been helping Britain prosper for over 320 years. Now we're on a mission to reshape the future of banking, and we're on the lookout for like-minded people to help make this a reality. Come join the UK's largest digital bank as we transform the way Britain banks and explore new, innovative technology.

Our digital platforms (public website, mobile & tablet app and internet banking website) are where the majority of customer and colleague interactions with the bank take place. While everyone in the group has had some interaction with them as a user or helped build new features on top of them, they are becoming increasingly complex with the introduction of public API's, increasing numbers of devices to access them from and constantly evolving operating systems.

Our Digital Platform Evolution team helps the organisation to really understanding how we leverage these digital touch points and the increasingly varied device capabilities that they run on, to stay relevant and fully embrace the rapidly evolving mobile first digital landscape.

We're looking for iOS Software Engineers who are excited about writing modular, well-tested applications with a long lifespan.

Do you value easy-to-maintain code, solid engineering practices, and sensible use of frameworks and patterns? Do you value extensive use of automated testing?

Then join our mobile team to help us transforming this complex business in a seamless experience for our customers. We work in a complex business with a high volume of customers and transactions, so a desire to dive into the details and come up with creative solutions is key. We strive to improve the bank's engineering community, by organising knowledge-sharing sessions, events and regular hackathons. We're always keen to hear from people who actively engage with technical groups. Within mobile, there's a strong focus on business value and giving customers the features they need.

We hope that you'll apply if:

You are comfortable with Swift fundamentals and have experience in building iOS applications

You have some experience building interfaces using auto layout

You have desire to write modularised and highly testable code

You are excited by the changing iOS landscape, and care deeply about learning new technologies and patterns

You enjoy contributing to the success of your team through close collaboration and communication

You take ownership of your work and strive to meet and exceed business requirements

You want to work on applications that have millions of active users, and regularly deliver new features into their hands

You want to keep learning and share what you know to help fellow engineers to grow with you

What skills and experience would be beneficial to have, but would not be essential for them to possess. Such as:

You know how the software development lifecycle works, and have good knowledge of source control, automated testing, and being part of an agile team

Exposure to version control and CI systems

An interest and/or experience in Infosec

An interest and/or experience in building advanced UI

An interest and/or experience in Accessibility

Ultimately, we care much more about the person you are, how you think and approach things, than a list of qualifications on a CV. Even if you can't say ‘yes' to all of the above, but are smart, self-motivated and passionate about delivering great solutions then get in touch.

At Lloyds Banking Group, we're driven by a clear purpose; to help Britain prosper. Across the Group, our colleagues are focused on making a difference to customers, businesses and communities. With us you'll have a key role to play in shaping the financial services of the future, whilst the scale and reach of our Group means you'll have many opportunities to learn, grow and develop.

We're focused on creating a values-led culture and are committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the customers and communities we serve. Together we're building a truly inclusive workplace where all of our colleagues have the opportunity to make a real difference.
