Some careers grow faster than others.

If you're looking for a career that will give you plenty of opportunities to develop, join HSBC and your future will be rich with potential. Whether you want a career that could take you to the top, or simply take you in an exciting new direction, HSBC offers opportunities, support and rewards that will take you further.

The Compliance Global Function within HSBC is responsible for implementing effective global standards to combat financial crime, including: Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Sanctions and Anti-Bribery & Corruption (AB&C) compliance.

The Financial Crime Threat Mitigation (FCTM) department within Compliance includes investigators, intelligence analysts, data scientists, subject matter experts, liaison specialists and innovation specialists. FCTM is responsible for identifying, analysing & investigating financial crime risk, and ensuring that these risks are properly mitigated within HSBC. The current FCTM systems architecture is based on a large on-premise Hadoop platform (aka Compliance Data Lake), which supports a large number of data processing and analytics workloads.

HSBC IT has an ambitious strategy to move all on-premise analytics workloads onto Google Cloud (GCP). At the same time, Compliance has started a large business programme (ILFCRM or Intelligence Lead Financial Crime Risk Management) to radically improve HSBC's financial crime risk systems & processes.

One of the objectives of ILFCRM is to build a new GCP application (called DRA or Dynamic Risk Assessment) that uses advanced machine learning techniques. DRA will provide (a) data scientists a secure environment for developing & training new ML models, and (b) an execution environment for running approved ML models in a controlled operational environment.

This role is for a Cloud Engineer in the DRA IT team. The successful candidate will help us develop and build-out our new DRA application in GCP.

Key duties include:
·
Help to deliver GCP development projects (including: design, development/coding, testing & deployment into Production) e.g.

·
example 1: Build event driven pipeline: a message is published by an HSBC system > Pub/Sub > Dataflow > model prediction > save results in BigQuery.

·
example 2: Build batch process: large file is generated in an HSBC Hadoop cluster > batch job transfers file to Google Cloud Storage > data is copied to BigQuery.

·
example 3: Write a complex Dataflow/Beam job in Java or Python to merge customer & reference data > update the customer profile in Bigtable > re-calculate customer risk score.

·
example 4: Build a secure analytics environment in GCP for Data Scientists (they want to use tools like... Python, R, Jupyter notebook, ML libraries, BigQuery).

·
Collaborate with central teams (architecture, security, engineering, networks) who are responsible for delivering HSBC's baseline cloud architecture.

·
Collaborate with other development teams that are also working to deliver use cases on GCP (share best practice).
