Witamy w Krakowie! Bienvenue a Cracovie! Welcome to Krakow! Maxime, seriously? All right. We are the nearshore strategic centre for Global Banking and Markets IT, supporting the Investment Bank of HSBC. Our businesses participate in global financial markets and it means that everything we do from electronic trading in the markets, to giving our customers online features and products has technology at the heart. Investment Banking Industry thrives on flow, analysis, and interpretation of information. We use Big Data and Cloud technologies and we put great emphasis on quality and any kind of automation especially in the area of testing and CI/CD pipeline. One of our newest team is using a special functional programming language and a vector programming language to allow terabytes of daily data to be analysed. We use advanced technology stack underpinned by modern ways of working, DevOps and Agile to ensure that we keep the teams focused on users’ needs. Our teams are adopting the latest development techniques, working hand in hand with our business. One of our team did 10,000 live releases last year. GBM IT thinks more out of the box in terms of tooling and processes and have set up their own way of working. This creates a flexible and more comfortable environment for technical people. We are not attached to any language or technology. As the business changes our solutions change. This part of Europe is home to a very talented and diverse, both technical and business orientated individuals. I really liked the recruitment process. It was nice and short. I also like the possibility to work from home. I’ve met managers of HSBC on job fairs. They told us there is no dress-code, so I’m here. I started my journey in HSBC Turkey, continued in GSC Poland, I worked onsite in Johannesburg and Paris, then moved across the teams and right now I’m working in GBM IT. I know that the opportunities HSBC provides will continue. Business is at the heart of everything we do. We create cross-functional, small and nimble teams where business and IT physically sit together. I guess what I like the most is collaborative environment. Everyday, we work together with IT team to make sure that at the end of the week we will deliver a working piece of functionality to production, bringing value to our Clients and revenue to the Company. As members of global teams we have an opportunity to learn a lot about investment banking. We take full responsibility in the delivery process and have become integrated With a co-located team of business users that sit in the same office. The fact that I know people who I’m working with helps me to deliver the best performance I can. We share the successes and learn from failures. Our business moves very fast, and we are here to provide the best ways to get results needed, in the most effective, safe and fun way. What I like the most about working in HSBC? I think definitely its people. We have pretty good connection, we actually meet often outside of HSBC. The nature of my work ensures that no day is like any other. That’s why the projects here are so interesting. We always do something new and whether it’s functional programming, real-time data processing or cloud solutions, there is always a reason and purpose behind which gives this good feeling of learning, building and achieving. I’ve learnt couple of new programming languages and it is really nice that HSBC allows us to learn new things and not stop at the point we came here. Technology is transforming the way Organization think, react and operate. Get in touch with us.
