Job Description Summary
Deliver business value through sound and fully rounded engineering methods and principles, ensuring platforms and software are built consistently with relevant patterns and practices. Able to continually develop themselves with industry best practice methods and tooling used across their engineering teams.
Lloyds Banking Group is committed to Help Britain Prosper and become the best bank for customers. As part of this we're transforming our digital capability, providing customers with simpler, seamless interactions across online, mobile and branches.
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.
The 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.
As our organisation transforms, the team will evolve the core design and architectural frameworks of these platforms to help them further integrate with our physical channels, ensure they look and feel great to customers however they interact with them, and to deliver new features or capabilities that act as enablers for value streams to build out from.
