About the team

At Lloyds Banking Group our purpose is to help Britain prosper, backed up with a £3bn investment in our technology and data capabilities to become the best bank for customers.

This role sits within Machine Learning Platforms where we design, build, and operate the bank's Machine Learning, Data Science and Analytics platforms.

We're a friendly group of about 40 people with a huge passion for all things Data and Artificial Intelligence. We come from a variety of backgrounds, but we all share in the vision of the untapped potential of human and machine intelligence.

We want to make the bank of the future safer, faster, and more effective. We're realising a future where machine intelligence takes away repetitive manual effort and instead provides insight and direction to our colleagues – empowering them to do more, with less effort.

Within Data & Machine Learning ( DML), we work flexibly and operate a hybrid working pattern with teams & individuals mixing their time between home and office locations with a principle of 2-3 days a week on average in the office agreed at a team level to balance both individual needs and business outcomes.

  • You'll create an ML cloud platform from scratch.
  • You'll craft hugely scalable compute using tools like GKE.
  • You’ll build an industrial DevSecOps pipeline to enable the continuous d elivery of hundreds of ML models.

It's ok if one or two of these are things you're not used to. We want people who want to learn, grow and teach us something in the process.
