Our roles

Technology

When people think of banks, they usually think of branches, investment banking and board rooms. But online banking, complex international transactions and security require complex technology - and that's why technology is a driving force at Barclays.

We have a history of groundbreaking innovation. We want to lead technological change in financial services, not follow others: we were the first high street bank to offer an ATM, the first bank in Africa to launch an Apple Watch app and one of the first banks to launch wearable payment devices.

Pingit was the first UK app to allow payments by mobile phone, using just a phone number. Our technology teams keep Pingit up to date. They collaborate using Agile methods to add new features and incorporate customer feedback.

Assisted Service Counters

We've simplified and automated routine banking transactions for our customers, saving them time while keeping their personal contact with branch staff.

Apple Watch app

We were the first bank in Africa to launch an Apple Watch app - and using Agile methodology meant we did it in just six weeks!

Barclays Live

Barclays Live keeps our colleagues and clients connected, offering everything from small-scale web apps and research content to analytic tools based on enterprise-level technology.

bPay

bPay is one of the world's first open-loop contactless payment devices, allowing people from the age of 12 to use wearables to pay quickly and easily from a pre-paid account.

Ways of working

The way we’re delivering change in technology is just as important as the products we're developing. Our project teams and locations are agile, helping us innovate in the most effective and responsive way. 

The CoLabs (Collaboration Laboratories) at some of our technology locations let colleagues experiment, design and make technology changes rapidly. Our technology teams work alongside fintech entrepreneurs through our global partnership with RISE in New York, London and Cape Town, bringing us new ideas and a start-up mindset.
