The aim of our IT department is simple, to deliver quality, secure and innovative technology that provides a world class service to our clients and colleagues.

Why work in technology?

Build your career

Whether you see your future as becoming a leader through managing people, or being an expert in your field and helping set our technical strategy, there is a way for you to be everything you can be at HL. We will support you every step through access to mentors, coaching, online technical training (Pluralsight), internal leadership development and sponsorship of industry standard certifications.

Agile working

We have implemented great agile ways of working, but the cultural and behavioural aspects here at HL are the things we value most. We’re keen to bring people in who have the energy, enthusiasm and knowledge to help us move forward.

Dynamic culture

We know that a great client experience is driven by giving them access to the best technology. To support this we hold regular HL micro conferences with our HL Tech team in Warsaw, and attend technology conferences across the globe. A stand out client experience also depends on the people across our technology teams, with our company values guiding the way we do things.

Our tech stack

We use a broad range of technology and are looking for experience in everything from Kotlin, Kafka and Kubernetes to Spring, React, Docker, GO, Java, Scala, Akka, Puppet, ActiveMQ and Splunk. We run a high traffic/availability website and have started creating event driven architecture. To ensure the smooth running of our own infrastructure we need people who can use tools such as LAMP stacks, Solaris Cluster, Sybase, Oracle Database and Big Data, Redis, Oracle AQ and more.
