This is a Software Engineer role in the Corporate Investment Bank Information Architecture team. CIB IAs customers and collaborators include other members of CIB IA, other Information Architects and Developers in other parts of CIB, and other Lines of Business, such as Global Technology.

CIB IA has a wide Data Management agenda, and key elements of this include having a well-defined meta-model (defining what a valid model is), having Information Architects create valid models, and being able to forward-engineer assets from these models. Our data models are less \"diagrams for discussion\", and are more a higher-level specification of data, behavior and associated componentry.

Effective forward-engineering of models into assets implies a good understanding of the source metamodel and a good understanding of the target language(s). Therefore a successful candidate will need to be literate at reading and interpreting data models and be able to become intimately familiar with target languages and their supporting ecosystems of libraries and tools. Of particular interest are libraries and tools relating to validation, serialization/deserialization, API implementation and persistence.

The successful candidate will be expected to help with the specification of how to map models to assets, and with the implementation of tools capable of doing so.

CIB IA also develops solutions covering other aspects of Data Management. Some assist with the classification of data, and to support the ability to reason with the data classification data collected. Others can involve integration with other metadata sources.

Working in this area, in this environment, will provide exposure to Information Architecture as a discipline, and a higher-level view of data and processing than is normally found in a Development role. This role therefore represents a great growth opportunity.Experience & Knowledge Essential * An interest in data and an appreciation of the value it can bring to an organization if it's properly understood, organized and governed * Read and understand UML class models * Use of Data Modelling tool(s) such as MagicDraw, ERWin, Power Designer, IDE plugins, ... * Understand how a data model could be manifested in target programming or schema languages * Programming languages, such as Java, Python, Javascript, XSLT, XQuery, PL/SQL, ... * Serialized data formats, such as XML, JSON, Apache Avro, Google Protobuff, ... * Schema languages, such as XSD, JSONSchema, Avro Schema, Protobuff Schema, ... * Messaging APIs, such as JMS, Apache QPid, Apache Kafka, ... * Persistence APIs, such as JDBC, Hibernate, MarkLogic XCC, ... * Design and implementation of APIs, perhaps using REST, and/or Swagger, WSDL, ...

* Experience collaborating with business and technical teams in order to understand, translate, review and playback requirements and collaborate to develop Model Engineering solutions.

Desirable * Programming Language Design and Implementation. eg: defining languages, grammars, validators, lexical analyzers, parsers, compilers, interpreters, debuggers * Anything working with metadata, such as code analysis or code generation * Knowledge and experience of the Software Engineering Methodologies (e.g. Agile) * Knowledge of Financial Services and more specifically Wholesale and Investment Banking. * Exposure to other Data Standards (preferably Financial) such as SWIFT, FIX or FpML.
