Our purpose?
ANZ Core Systems is a conglomerate of applications that manage deposits, savings, loans, debit and credit cards, transactions and customers. Servicing multiple business units and tribes across ANZ, we run mission critical applications for the bank and this brings serious challenges to solve and engineer. We engineer systems that processes thousands of customer transactions per second in real time and provide services consumed in tens of millions a day.
We’re passionate about creating flexible and agile services that are not on the critical path of tribe deliverables and we will radically simplify our architecture and processes to continually improve time to value.
Here at ANZ, engineering is about delivering a seamless customer experience at scale through working with the rest of the business in an innovative, adaptive and agile way. This means you will get to:
1. Solve for problems and issues that matter. You’ll work on providing quality solutions that make an impact to customers. You’ll have a laser focus on customers, using human-centred design to provide simple and impactful solutions.
2. Develop both breadth and depth. We want great engineers, and we will foster our people’s talent by giving opportunities to work on things that develop both your deep technical expertise, as well as your broad end-to-end understanding. At times you may be coding in a specific platform, and at other times you may work on enterprise-wide solutions across the business— either way, you get to work on missions that excite you and ignites your passion.
3. Work Agile in multidisciplinary teams. Working Agile means you will be constantly testing, iterating, and making rapid decisions as you go. You will get to self-organise and work in squads consisting of developers, ops engineers, customer journey experts and product owners who come from different domains. It’s not about getting something perfect, but about constantly testing and iterating.
4. Own it. Most importantly, you’ll get to deliver end to end service, and shape how ANZ delivers on their commitment to providing great customer service through technology.
