My client who are a Global Management Consultancy specialising in Business-aligned Technology Banking initiatives/programs/projects/POCs, predominantly in all things Emerging Technologies, are looking for a Technology Practice Leader/Head of Technology for their Singapore office to predomninatly cover Singapore, though demand in HK is growing consistently.
An individual who is a Technology Leader within Technology with a background in Architecture (perhaps as a Lead/Chief Architect at some stage in their career) would be very attractive. You 'll also need to have a very strong commercial acumen for a Technology Consulting role into Banks and the wider Banking 'umbrella'.
A minimum of 10 years’ experience in leadership roles in some guise is essential for this role, managing both on and off-shore versatile technology teams – c20-25, Architects, Developers, QA.
The role requires an individual who can engage effectively with banking clients, be very commercial and capable of finding niches within current and prospect clients (in order to displace/compete with competitors) in line with my client’s current and potential offerings in the Digital and wider Emerging Technologies Banking land-scape.
You must be familiar with at least one of the following traditional banking systems such as Murex, Summit, Calypso, Kondor, Wall Street, Sungard etc for example.
This individual will also need to have at the very least a decent level of understanding of emerging technologies such as Big Data, AI, Chatbox (and other Intelligent Automation Technologies), Blockchain (Etherium vs Bitcoin), Cloud (AWS vs Azure) APIs.
Ideally you will have Technology consulting experience within FSI, ideally with both local and international banks in Singapore and across Asia, with a very strong Banking C-Suite network. Must also be able to manage & build a team, and be able to point to current or previous successes in this area.
Typical Projects that this person will be involved in driving include, but not limited to: Client wants to implement a new trading platform, Consulting team define the future operating model & then this individual’s Technology Team will design the enterprise architecture, configure the system & functionality, test the functionality etc. Staff Augmentation.
