Together, they form a virtual, agile organisation with the common goal of creating products and services that simplify and improve the everyday lives of our customers and employees.
The Technology organisation has been commissioned to be a driving force when it comes to creating the bank of tomorrow, by contributing with technical expertise and innovation. In addition to ensuring that the bank's systems are always accessible, reliable and future-proof, the organisation is also the bank's research and development department with the task of exploring how more value can be created for customers using new technology such as AI, machine learning and data analysis.
SEB's Tech and IT-related services are currently located in 14 countries, however the majority have their home base in Sweden and Lithuania.
Our Tech programme is designed to give you a broad introduction to what it is like to work in a large and complex, international organisation while you kick-start your career as a IT specialist. The programme has room for about 20 participants who are all offered a specific work role, either in Sweden or internationally.
The programme starts in September every year and runs for 6 months.
The programme is structured in two parts where the time is shared between your home department and learning- and networking activities.
From the beginning you are hired into a specific role where you will develop skills to become a future IT-specialist.
Training and collaboration
You participate in learning activities such as courses in self-leadership, communication and collaboration. In addition, you will participate in workshops, listen to inspirational speakers as well as participate in hackathons, business challenges, Google Cloud day and a lot more.
Cooperation, responsibility and positive influence are key competencies to develop during the programme. During the Tech programme, you will have many opportunities to collaborate with other people from the Tech and Trainee programmes as well as other colleagues within SEB. You will take personal responsibility and run collaborative activities as well as take part in real business challenges and find solutions together with your colleagues. You will also take part in - and influence - our culture, our values and our way of working.
SEB's Tech programme is a unique development opportunity and a way for you to build networks and work with exciting and tech projects. We hope you want to be one of us!
