Driving the digital transformation of Santander UK, the banking industry is on the cusp of disruption. New technologies, new players and new banks are creating an environment for innovation and change. Santander UK is on a journey to become a data driven organisation by leveraging Big Data technology. In Santander UK Technology we have created Data Innovation: an area where new technologies to extract value from data can be used to create new products, services or even business models that generate new value for our customers.
Our Big Data platform is now used by the bank to power all new digital applications. Data is at the heart of our transformation through the application of new technologies such as Hadoop, Spark, Kafka and other open source technology and the adoption of new methods of work. We follow agile principles and take new approaches to software delivery, using test driven development and a continuous integration platform.
We’re responsible for the end-to-end and side-to-side aspects of the data business, from data integration and exploitation, data modelling and architecture to data governance. We design, test and deploy applications and are responsible for the strategy through to implementation, change management and communication.
As a team they are driven, agile and lean and work in a fast-paced, challenging and collaborative environment and always seeking individuals with an entrepreneurial attitude who want their work to have real impact.
