We celebrate individuality and recognize that diversity and inclusion, in all forms, is critical to success. It is important to us that we recruit and develop as diverse a range of talent as we can. We believe that everyone brings something different to the table – so we would love to know what makes you different.
Capco is a global technology and business consultancy, focused on the financial services sector. We are passionate about helping our clients succeed in an ever-changing industry.
- Experts in capital markets, banking and payments, wealth and asset management, and insurance.
- Deep in our knowledge of financial services offerings, including finance, risk and compliance, financial crime, capital markets, and core banking.
- Practitioners who focus on delivering great results with our clients by using contemporary technologies and approaches to help solve important challenges across financial services.
- Committed to growing our business and hiring the best talent to help us get there.
- Focused on maintaining our nimble, agile and entrepreneurial culture
What’s this all about?
We’re looking for tech-savvy analysts with experience in financial services to join our Technology Practice. We want people who can work closely with our engineering and consulting teams to deliver the next generation of cutting-edge solutions with our clients.
We’re open to different types of backgrounds; we care most about the skills and attitude you can bring to the table. Maybe you are an experienced business or software analyst, or seeking a career change from product owner, software engineer, tester or some other kind of technology or target operating model specialist.
What kind of work will I do?
Capco consultants work on a wide variety of client challenges; consequently, we value intellectual flexibility and curiosity as highly as we do quality and rigour.
Our technical analysts play pivotal roles in helping our clients with problems such as designing and executing dev-ops strategies, launching new API market offerings and mobile applications to improve market share, creating cloud native machine learning and data analytics services, and even building entirely new challenger banks root and branch.
Can you give me some example roles?
You could work as a member of a technical advisory team conducting research into products for a core banking solution, weighing that up against sizing of other build or integration options, working with architects and BAs to document requirements, draw high level solutions, and build out plans and investment cases.
Another possibility entirely is working closely with engineers, testers and product owners delivering new products for our clients, helping with system analysis or definition of APIs, data and NFRs in an agile pod.
No two projects are the same, and we encourage our people to put their own stamp on their roles and take advantage of opportunities to learn and impress.
So why me?
We’ve built a strong and diverse team through a mixture of direct hiring, but also through dedicated training of a wide range of talented individuals from technology, research and technically detailed analyst backgrounds.
We’re good at spotting people who have what it takes, and we offer a wide range of internal training, as well as access to industry-recognised external training and accreditations.
Analysts that join us are given the platform to develop deeper and more technical analyst skills, opportunities to work alongside other disciplines, and are supported to develop in adjacent career paths such as product management and solution architecture if that’s where they decide they want their career to go.
