The Strategic Centre

Established in 2009, Barclays Technology Centre (BTC) Lithuania is one of our four strategic engineering centres, supporting the Barclays Retail Banking businesses across the globe.

Having grown at a rapid pace both in terms of resources and capabilities, we support the areas of Global Network Services, Windows Platform Group, Global Storage, Unix Infrastructure, Global Z/os, Project Management Centre, End User Services and Technology.

On top of our core capabilities, we’re adding new services all the time, such as Global Information Security. No wonder, then, we experienced growth in 2011.

The work we do

In fact, ours is one of the biggest IT project management teams in Lithuania. We have pioneering Centres of Excellence for both Java and Linux, and the Linux team is the first of its kind in Barclays Technology. We’ve already developed a solution that provides incredible efficiency improvement, and the team is standardising all Linux-related procedures across RBB as a whole.

The Java team delivers integrated software solutions to more than 40,000 employees around the globe, and keeps the bank open for business every working day.

One of the biggest projects the Lithuania team have managed is the migration of a remote Service Desk with 100 resources providing a 24/7 service.  The team delivered a seamless transition without interrupting the services to our customers.

What it’s like to work here

Based in an award-winning, eco-friendly building, we’ve been named the second most desirable employer in Lithuania according to the country’s leading business newspaper, Verslo Zinios.

We welcome the brightest minds from all over the world.  We’re a truly global business with a huge range of cultures, and great training and development.  We’ve also set up one of the first graduate programmes in Lithuania, so we’re breaking new ground in every sense.
