About Hypercube

Hypercube is an innovative internal application developed within Barclays that supports horizontal integration across the business. The system provides users with access to complex business data and calculations, by integrating multiple data sources using virtual adapters. Currently the Hypercube platform has over 500 unique weekly users, 2000 registered users and delivers over 4000 reports every day.
This role would suit individuals looking for a new challenge and seeking an opportunity to play an integral role developing data virtualisation solutions within FiRM and for use across the wider organisation.

It is a multifaceted role involving analysis, SQL, technical and innovative .net engineering, testing, release and quality management. Successful candidates will work as part of a small team for technically literate business stake holders and interface with other technology teams across the firm. While the core goal is virtualisation, opportunities exist to make fundamental changes to platforms that will benefit a wide user base. Hypercube in particular is highly service based, scalable, flexible and extensible infrastructure that can be easily modified to suit business requirements.

• Proactively problem solve and suggest future enhancements by working with both business and technology teams to understand their requirements and the business problems being resolved
• End to End delivery of virtualisation components including design, build, unit testing, regression testing & documentation of changes
• Transform business level requirements into generic features, which all business areas can benefit from – taking ownership of components
• Actively supporting our user base and establish rapport and trust with them
• Answer client queries on a Q&A site, chat channel and email
• Understand technical and regulatory matters and ensure compliance and adherence to any relevant policy
