Programmes and business groups
Macquarie’s Technology team comprises nearly 2,500 people based all around the globe working on delivering innovative technological solutions to provide fast and reliable systems to place trades, deliver value and position us to be competitive within the market. Our teams are responsible for driving simplification and consolidation of our technology architecture and efficiency of our key infrastructure platforms and own strategic initiatives such as cyber security, and public and private cloud programs.
Working in one of our teams in Technology, you could be:
1 year, allocated to a team from August
Allocated to a team from June to August
We currently have the following opportunities within our business:
Software Developers/ Front Office Support Engineers/ Business Analysts
Technology is an integrated division with strong infrastructure and operations that support all of Macquarie, layered with strong business and enterprise-wide solutions. Our portfolio of work spans across significant strategic initiatives, business initiatives, and external and regulatory initiatives. The work we do demonstrates the extent to which Technology is integral to Macquarie’s businesses.
You’ll work closely with senior IT and finance professionals, learning how technology is used to manage risk in a global financial institution. Key responsibilities of the role include implementing software design, testing and deployment best practices; identifying opportunities to improve technology infrastructure and executing the process of planning and communicating change. You will develop and code our applications and platforms, which will involve high technical analysis, problem solving skills and mathematical abilities.
As an Intern you will work in an agile environment, focusing on the automation of products across a hybrid cloud platform. Your role will involve hands-on development including maintaining code bases, application deployments, and automating testing capabilities. You will be part of a team which is responsible for public and private cloud infrastructure, troubleshooting and overseeing operational projects which will involve high technical analysis and problem-solving skills.
UX/ Design Thinking
You will join the Commodities and Global Markets user experience team within Digital Services, a diverse, global group that works collaboratively with developers, product owners and business users to design a range of financial applications for Macquarie clients, colleagues and external customers. Projects are varied and can range from specialised risk management applications, to regulatory dashboards, to specialised data visualisation applications on desktop and mobile devices.
Each UX project can vary in its approach but essentially follows similar stages, namely Discovery, Analysis, Design and Implementation. To cover this process, the principal roles in the team are UX Designers (user research, personas analysis and task analysis, sketches and wireframes), Visual Designers (prototypes and high-resolution visual designs) and a front-end (technology) development team for implementation. Designers work on Apple Mac computers using a range of tools.
The team is highly skilled and experienced, and you will gain valuable exposure to understanding what’s it like to work in a modern, digital design team and will benefit from their mentoring.
Diane Nguyen, Technology
“I started out on the Graduate Programme in a technology role. I now support our Commodities and Global Markets division, specifically the FX and Futures business. My role involves investigating issues through to technical solution and delivery.
What surprised me most about working at Macquarie is that over the course of my career I have had exposure to different areas of the organisation and been given the opportunity and support to really drive my own career.”
