Farnborough: Discover hiring for 100 new cutting-edge tech roles

Discover, a leading digital bank and payments company, is looking to hire 100 skilled technology professionals to join its growing UK office.

Skilled technology professionals who join the Farnborough office will play an integral part in delivering cloud platforms and application solutions to support the Discover card, one of the largest card issuers in the US, and the Discover Global Network, a leading payments company with operations around the world.

“Discover is the fastest growing global payments network and we hope experienced UK tech talent consider us for the opportunities we offer,” said Steve Croke, vice president of Core Payment Systems. “We are carrying out cutting-edge work in the areas of cloud, DevOps, agile and automation. Our digital-first mindset and belief in empowering talented people will give them a chance to make a difference.”

Opportunities are available for experienced software engineers, DevOps engineers, quality and test engineers and engineering leaders. Specific skills sought by Discover include Java, AWS, cloud, Chef and Bitbucket.

The UK team supports business initiatives with collaboration tools, cloud computing, end user experience and server operations. Discover is as an industry leader in fraud strategies that enable the business to gain and maintain a competitive advantage.

The new roles will be based at Discover’s UK office, also called the Tech Hub, in the architect-designed Ascent contemporary office community housed within the Farnborough Aerospace Centre in Hampshire. All of Discover’s 18,000 employees, including approximately 300 employees based in the UK, were moved to work remotely when the Covid-19 pandemic struck in March. It is expected that they will continue to work remotely until June next year.

Discover was ranked No 18 in the 2020 IDG’s Computerworld Best Places to Work in IT list.  That was achieved through a commitment to benefits, career development, training and retention. Discover provides a benefits package to all of its employees including a flexible work environment, competitive pension scheme, competitive leave plans, private medical and dental insurance and commuter benefits. The company provides various career development coaching, training and support programs to help foster career growth. The company also has 11 Employee Resource Groups, which provides tools and resources to help employees connect, build communities at work and foster an inclusive environment.
