Business Analysts/Developers – Banking Systems

Yours are the solutions that could evolve a unique international institution.

Your contribution to our mission
In our role as a bank for central banks, we manage reserves for a relatively small number of customer central banks and international financial institutions. The tools and systems we develop must meet their highly specific requirements and are often vitally important to their needs. Our technological solutions support our customers’ ability to manage their reserves.

We are currently undertaking a fundamental, long-term review of our trading, messaging and risk management systems, informed and inspired by the vast portfolio of new technologies available nowadays. You’ll be key to that rejuvenation.

A hybrid role at the heart of our transformation
This is a role that straddles both business analysis and development. You will help analyse our banking processes and systems to unearth the tools and technologies that will offer the highest standards of security, stability and usability to our customers. You will then, in your role as developer or business analyst, help to create these solutions through an agile workflow in a highly collaborative team-oriented environment.

This is an area with a lot of potential that requires energy and drive. Not just to explore the wide range of possibilities, but to collaborate with different areas of the Bank and strengthen our networks with central banks yourself.

Your qualifications and experience

  • A university-level degree in information management or computer science.
  • Programming skills in Java and C/C++ or C#/.NET.
  • Knowledge of different financial instruments.
  • An open mind: someone who will enjoy the exposure to different experts and areas both within and outside the organisation, and continually improve, learn and adapt with the team context.
  • A hands-on, practical approach.
  • Solid English writing skills, including the ability to write clear system and user documentation.

What you can expect in return
Simply put, we want your time at BIS to be a career-enriching experience. We offer a genuinely unique international working environment, which will give you exposure to a number of business areas and expert networks. You will also receive a competitive compensation package, including health insurance, and full financial support to help you relocate.

All new staff members are recruited on a fixed-term basis without expectation either of any contract renewal or conversion. The contract may however be extended or converted to an open-ended one at the end of the term, subject to organisational needs and individual performance. The BIS is fully committed to equal opportunity employment and strives for diversity among its staff. 

This is your opportunity to work in an international environment alongside colleagues from more than 60 countries. We offer competitive conditions of employment and can recruit globally regardless of nationality.
