Although not a household name, State Street is one of the worlds largest and most important financial services institutions, providing round-the-clock services to the global investment community. We touch $33 trillion in assets every day, and are the worlds third largest investment manager with over $2.8 trillion in assets under management. To do this we manage as much data as one of the internet giants on nearly as large a technical footprint.

In January 2018, we launched one of the industrys largest technical transformation projects, in effect building a new bank from the ground up. This project isnt greenfield in the way most banks claim projects are; weve started with a blank sheet of paper both operationally and technically. Were using the same technologies that Silicon Valley giants are using: aggressive use of multiple public clouds, building our own private cloud to achieve even better performance, pushing out microservices into what will be one of the largest Kubernetes installations in the world, leveraging immutable storage to process and store hundreds of terabytes of data a day,reinventing databases to be elastic and scale to petabytes,transforming our industry through application of distributed ledger technology and cognitive computing,aggressively participating in open source communities driving our systems.

This isnt a traditional banking role. This is a chance to push your technical skills with people more comfortable in a technology firm than an investment bank by solvingproblems that affect anyone with any form of savings worldwide (not just trying to get people to click on ads). We dont expect you to wear a suit, we dont expect you to not be able to tell your friends what youre working on, we dont expect you to sit in meetings 5 hours a day.
