Barclays International technology

There’s that feeling. The feeling that it’s not quite finished. That you could make it better. You spot an improvement that could be made; something that could be more efficient, a touch faster, just easier to use. We know that feeling. Because we get it too. And because we understand it, we give our people all the support and development to make the most of it – whether that’s through training on the languages that can help do jobs better, investment in technology to make things easier, or simply the opportunities to grow.

We’re always developing. You should be too.

So why not join us?

What can Barclays offer developers?

Traditionally working in a large organization, in theory, you're a small cog in a big wheel. We don't work like that. 


A good time to join Barclays 

A lot has changed in the Finance industry since I joined Barclays in 2009 - We’ve come a long way. But, the interesting thing is, we’re nowhere near the end of the story.


The growing influence of technologists

Every company will say that it’s an exciting time to join them. Finance and banking industry clients especially.


A developer’s view of Barclays

As someone who’s come from a developer background, worked at a Start Up and now manages developer teams for what you might call a big corporate, I guess I’ve seen both sides of the tech career world.


Experience loves the new

When I tell people I’ve been in this industry for 25 years, some people seem to think it would be difficult to retain your enthusiasm for what you do.
