Generative AI Full Stack Engineering Lead – Codified Controls

Are you looking for career move that will allow to take a strategic project zero to one?  Become a part of Citi’s greenfield programme and transform the working environment of the 18,000+ software engineers here at Citi.

We are seeking an innovative Full Stack Engineering Lead to join the Codified Controls group. This dedicated team is focused on driving the everything-as-code agenda and delivering tangible reductions in process friction, errors, and manual effort. In this role you will be responsible for driving and contributing to the technical direction of our products and services, instilling engineering best

practices into the team, and promoting cultural change across the organisation. You will also work with Generative AI technologies, such as GPT-4, embedding their capabilities through prompt engineering in our systems.

What you’ll do:

  • Work with a wide variety of Citi teams (not limited to Technology) and help them drive towards everything-as-code and a codified controls environment
  • Provide foundational engineering capabilities to enable controls codification, such as Evidence Lakes and a policies/standards lifecycle management ecosystem
  • Collaborate with product and engineering teams to design, build and maintain scalable and reliable web applications and services
  • Be hands-on with coding and software design to ensure adherence to high quality standards and best practices
  • Mentor and nurture other engineers to help them grow their skills and expertise
  • Support and drive cultural change, including instigating critical thinking about controls and processes and encouraging a culture of continuous improvement

What we’ll need from you:

  • Proven experience as a Full Stack Engineering Lead, hands on Software Engineering Manager, or similar role
  • Strong expertise in multiple programming languages, frameworks, and tools (we use JavaScript/TypeScript, Golang and Python)
  • Demonstrated expertise of developing on a range of architectures, ideally up to and including container-based micro-services with focus on scalability, reliability, maintainability, and high performance
  • Good understanding of SQL and NoSQL databases (we use Couchbase, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL)
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills
  • A growth mindset and willingness to learn and adapt in a fast-paced environment
  • Passion about site reliability engineering and its impact on product development
  • Being connected to latest technologies, like Generative AI, and keen to put them in practice

What we’ll provide you

This is a unique role that will put you in the position to be part of a new venture and actively drive change. Every day there will be new challenges that will help you develop new skills that can drive your career.

By joining Citi in our brand-new Manchester hub, you will not only be part of a business casual workplace with a hybrid working model (up to 2 days working at home per week), but also receive a competitive base salary (which is annually reviewed), and enjoy a whole host of additional benefits such as:

  • 27 days annual leave (plus bank holidays)
  • A discretional annual performance related bonus
  • Private Medical Care & Life Insurance
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • Pension Plan
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • Special discounts for employees, family, and friends
  • Access to an array of learning and development resources

Alongside these benefits Citi is committed to ensuring our workplace is where everyone feels comfortable coming to work as their whole self, every day. We want the best talent around the world to be energized to join us, motivated to stay and empowered to thrive.
