The role sits within our Payments & Economic Crime Prevention value stream, part of our Group Transformation division. Your role will focus on supporting the development and maintenance of anti-fraud software, mainly using Java. This is a great role if you want to:

  • Help and support the prevention of crime against many vulnerable people in the UK. The work we do in this area really matters and improves the lives of our customers.

  • Join an engineering function with a great support network.

  • Be involved in our move to Cloud.


As a Java Engineer, you’ll support the development and delivery of our Java based Springboot Microservices.

You will work within a Software Engineering team embedded into the PECP Lab of multidisciplinary staff, to create the best outcomes for our 30 million customers.

You will be empowered to support the design and development of solutions that face into the constantly evolving needs of our customers and collaborate with others to make them a reality.

To be considered for the role, you must be able to show demonstrable experience and provide examples of the following in your CV:

  • Software Engineering background, either a degree or course followed by some commercial experience, or we usually find these roles suit people with up to 5 years pure commercial experience with no prior degree.

  • Skill coding in Java.

  • Any exposure to Springboot Microservices or API’s would be helpful but not required as we can teach this in role as long as your Java skills are to a suitable level.

  • Good communication & teamwork skills.
