How we work within tech
Biggest is not always the best. But in our case, it means interesting challenges in a safe environment – and making an impact regardless of where you work.
You need to use a different browser. To be able to use our internet services, you can instead use one of these browsers: Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Mozilla Firefox.
Do you dream of a job where you can break new technological ground – and still feel safe and backed up by one of the largest IT employers? Welcome to SEB, the frontrunner of technology.
The desire for innovation has always been there. We launched Sweden's first real-time ledger in the early ‘70s and continued with the country's first internet bank in the ‘90s – and the progressive development continues in the same spirit today. By adopting a public cloud with serverless microservices, infrastructure-as-code, data mesh, and APIs, we are taking further steps towards the future.
One way to accelerate the digital journey is through strategic partnerships, and one of them is google cloud. This partnership allows us to use data from our applications in a more intelligent way and speed up the creation of new, innovative solutions for our customers. Do you want to know more?

Are we that unique, though? The answer is yes. Only a limited number of companies have a comparable tech stack. From COBOL to AI, and everything in between. There are many technology paths to choose from, and if you aspire to learn and develop in your role, the opportunities are limitless. Our tech stack includes Kubernetes, Terraform, Python, .NET, TypeScript, Java, MongoDB, React Native, GoLang, BigQuery, Google and Azure Cloud Platforms, Assembler and Cobol, and various AI and ML technologies.
Container technology has fundamentally changed our view on application hosting and brings speed to our application deployment pipeline. Some examples are OpenShift, Mirantis/Docker, Kubernetes, Swam and Container Security.
AIOps, Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations – utilization of AI/ML to identify and remediate IT issues before they impact our customers. With a large and complex IT environment it can be very hard for a human eye or regular tooling to identify deviations in our IT environment. For these problems we are focusing on building ML and AI solutions – as an example we have recently implemented an AI solution to identify anomalies based on historic data for one of our technical solutions.
Using machine learning and artificial intelligence, our data science teams across SEB help the organization become more data driven. Current use-cases range from financial crime prevention (anomaly detection), document analysis (NLP), to sustainable banking (factor analysis). In addition, the Tech Talent of the year is hosted by our central data science team. See the posts in our tech blog:
We use public Cloud technologies for data analytics, third party solutions and relevant development of our own services. While Google Cloud is our preferred choice for SEB developed applications and data analytics, we also use Azure and AWS when integrating with third party solutions.
Our open-source projects range from front end tools to Kubernetes operators and more. We contribute to other projects and continuously evaluate what is suitable to open source. As a developer at SEB you are encouraged to use open source, you are also encouraged to open source your own SEB code.
We use and adopt the practices and solutions for DevOps, DevSecOps and CI/CD to increase speed and quality in our software delivery together with toolchain across multiple platforms. For example, we use CI/CD capabilities in the GCP (Google Cloud Platform) based on GitLab.
We use modern software engineering technologies, processes, practices, frameworks, development environment and tools to increase agility and to ensure the quality of modern software applications while providing great user experience (UX) across multiple platforms. We use a broad range of software programming languages. To mention a few, we love Java, .Net Core & .NET framework, Cobol, Go, React, Python and other popular programming languages.
