Talk to us about being an Australian company. How does that showcase itself in daily work life?
Being Australian, there’s a culture of directness. We believe in giving open and honest feedback. It all connects to our value of accountability. We voice our opinions in the room, not behind backs.
We’re also a little bit more casual, with friendly banter. You’ll most likely have someone give you a shortened version of your name.
From a business perspective, you’ll interact with colleagues in Australia, Asia and Europe, which is the cool thing about being part of a global company.
What kind of technology do you build?
Our teams create and maintain the technology which supports our business and capabilities across a range of activities. Our systems are built to manage end-to-end processes in an agile, secure and scalable manner. The tech teams often work in partnership with clients to constantly provide tech solutions that fit their needs.
What do you look for from tech candidates?
We really look for a problem-solving mindset vs. experience or skills in a specific language or framework. We want to see how you look at a problem and approach solving innovative and challenging technology projects.
Candidates don’t have to have experience in financial services, but you should be able to follow a client as they talk about the markets. As you will work closely with our investment managers, you’ll need to understand the business context in which we operate.
We’re also looking for people who are curious and not afraid to ask questions. We’re a culture that loves new ideas. We want people who will challenge us, our business and the way we’ve always done things.
What types of roles are you looking to fill?
Right now, we are looking for:
● Full-stack DevOps engineers
● Tech leads who are hands-on managers
At the moment, we continue to focus on automation, cloud for expansion, resilience and time to market. If these are passions or strengths of yours, we’d love to hear from you. It’s important for us to keep a pulse on emerging technologies and ideate how we can leverage those at Macquarie.
How do you approach growth and learning?
It’s very organic and aligns with our culture of opportunity. We work in smaller teams, so everyone has a chance to get their hands in a little bit of everything, including different parts of the business that you might not be trained in but are interested in learning more about.
We have a library of courses (online, in-house, on mobile), active employee network groups, Workplace by Facebook that keeps employees engaged, lunch and learns and we often bring in guest speakers.
Each year we also look forward to the annual Macquarie Technology Conference. It’s a week-long conference where discussions range from artificial intelligence and virtual reality to big data and robotics. The entire company is invited to experience emerging technologies firsthand and hear from internal experts and external thought leaders from across the technology landscape.
Learning here is flexible to your style and interests. Most growth happens when someone takes initiative to say, “I don’t have a background in this, but I have an interest in it. Can I work on this project?”
