In a world of constant change, technology is indispensable to achieve transformation and progress. Digitalisation offers opportunities for growth and it means that there is greater demand for technological professionals with a STEM background (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).  We want to attract this talent through the ‘Be Tech! with Santander’ initiative and we are looking for people who want to have a real impact. Find out below what this programme is all about and discover our available positions.

Digitalisation has changed the way that we work together, learn and carry out our jobs. At Santander, we are making progress in the bank's digital and commercial transformation as part of our efforts to become the best open financial services platform. To further enhance our customers’ experience and satisfaction. We need professionals like you, your knowledge and disruptive vision, to help us with these goals. 

As such, in 2020 we launched ’Be Tech! with Santander’, an ambitious digital personnel recruitment programme led by the Group's Technology and Operations (T&O) and Human Resources departments. Since then, we have not stopped growing and it has sparked expansion across other regions. We have recruited the best people and the most innovative talent in their respective fields and continued focused on attracting the best human talent. This has resulted in us our recognition as one of the 25 best places to work in the world by Great Place to Work.

"Technology is a strategic business driver, especially in banking, where digitalized products and services are a major part of our regular business — and this trend is growing"

Dirk Marzluf, global head of Technology & Operations (T&O) at Santander

As part of our ambitious plans to recruit technological personnel, the Group's T&O team alongside Human Resources have launched a new website that serves as a hub for employment vacancies in this field. The webpage is practical and streamlines talent acquisition globally. There are currently more than 750 technology vacancies within the Group. On the site, you can filter results by the market sector you are looking for directly on WorkDay (with an API created exclusively for the function) and you can apply for or save vacancies to come back to them later.

The global webpage is available in four languages (English, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish). This webpage reflects the Group's diversity. It also includes real testimonials from professionals that already work with us. Some of them also form part of our so-call "San Experts" team of employees who, through their expertise, publish content relating to the latest trends and topics for tech personnel. We have currently logged more than 100 hours on our corporate channels where most notable are the Santander Global T&O_social_media.
