In addition to appointing approximately two new engineers every day, the bank has also created a new ‘Distinguished Engineers’ role.
The bank’s Distinguished Engineers represent the pinnacle of the engineering profession and will be responsible for helping Commonwealth Bank deliver against its strategy of becoming a global leader in technology.
Speaking about the bank’s bold recruitment plans, Commonwealth Bank’s Chief Information Officer for Technology and newly appointed Distinguished Engineer, Brendan Hopper, said if the bank was to continue to deliver best-in-class digital customer experiences, it was imperative to have a robust network of engineers.
“Technology is at the forefront of every organisation around the world. No longer is technology part of a business, it is the business,” he said.
“The pace of change is accelerating and we want to be in front of the curve. Our customers will benchmark us not against the other banks, but against best digital experiences full stop.
“Of course, to deliver global-best experiences, we need to have the support of a world-class engineering network, which is why we are looking to appoint in excess of two new engineers every day from a variety of disciplines.”
Mr Hopper said the new engineers would help solve complex customer problems and, in turn, ensure the bank delivers a best-in-class, global-leading customer service experience.
