Your role

Are you interested in working with Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT)? Does experimenting with emerging technologies alongside business stakeholders distributed across the globe excite you? Do you want to explore the possibilities of DLT by leading a team to produce working concepts? We’re looking for someone to:

• Lead a team that translates business concepts into technical delivery by planning and preparing Proof-of-Concept projects, providing thought leadership, and advice on a broad scope of DLT use cases
• Collaborate with all UBS business divisions in developing DLT driven hypotheses / business cases and criteria for evaluating success
• Help business stakeholders with varying degrees of technology expertise leverage and understand the value of DLT solutions
• Support the execution and analysis of concept projects through high quality execution of validation stages, with technical evaluations that temper the excitement of technological advancement with a respect for risk mitigation
• Exhibit strong leadership by fostering an enthusiastic innovation team culture
• Be a leader that can balance team management alongside technical delivery responsibilities

Your team

You’ll be joining the Distributed Ledger Technology Center of Excellence, part of a growing Chief Digital Office (CDO) organization, where we take ideas from inception to prototype, exploring both knowns and unknowns to hone the business model as well as identify potential risks and issues. As a team, we deliver technology solutions to a diverse set of problems impacting divisions and domains across the firm. You’ll be leading a small team of engineers based in London, while also providing guidance to other development teams across the organization. You will interface with stakeholders across the globe and play an important role in shaping our digital future by maturing successful concept projects to a state where they can become fully funded initiatives for production.
