I am about to complete a decade working at Fiserv and have grown from a Customer Service Associate to a Project Management Team Lead traversing through diverse roles. This was only possible because Fiserv cares for its associates, recognizes employee potential and offers mobility and growth options. I truly feel proud to be associated with an organization that invests in its employees relentlessly and provides a fertile ground to bloom one’s career.

Mrinal, Project Management Analyst

When you think of all of the real-life applications of the financial services, you pay your bills online, through your mobile phone, and you send money through your phone. When I’m online and doing my bill pay, it is so pleasant to recognize a real Fiserv product in a customer’s hands. It’s so fun knowing that you’re involved in helping to bring that service to life.

Schnell, Lead Pricing Strategist

As a product marketer, a lot of my responsibility is around the go-to-market activities of a new or existing product. Our goal is to increase awareness of the product; make sure that we’re educating our clients about the value, why they should get it, how is it going to help their end-users. We attend tradeshows, produce collateral, brochures, PowerPoints and anything we need to enable our sales team to talk to clients about our products. Developing these solutions really helps us think outside of the box and expand ourselves beyond what we thought we could do or even come up with. Seeing it all come to life is very awesome and impactful.

What does a great Database Engineer do?

As a Database Engineer, you will establish yourself as a trusted technologist by helping ensure overall satisfaction with Fiserv solutions, which serve thousands of banks while processing trillions of dollars and billions of transactions a year.  Product Development and Product Management will rely on you to provide database optimization strategies for the solutions that Fiserv provides.  It is crucial that you become an advocate for our internal clients, our operating model and technology strategies, as you will be responsible for engineering automated methods of database management that drive inherent cost-effective efficiencies.

You will represent the Bank Solutions business unit as a designated database engineer for assigned projects.  You should be comfortable creating and reviewing complex code and documentation across many disparate technologies, with a strong knowledge of cloud-enabled development and an aspiration to quickly understand complex proprietary infrastructure architecture.  Your responsibility is to engineer and maintain methods of optimization in managing performance-oriented data structures for supported applications.  This role will work closely with project teams to ensure performance testing requirements are completed and the results meet client expectations.

This role must manage diverse system platforms and product lines within Fiserv and be able to adapt quickly to unfamiliar technologies.  It is critical that you continually learn and maintain current knowledge of Fiserv Solutions and industry-standard development practices and technologies to provide optimal database engineering strategies for various Fiserv solutions.  At times, you will be called upon to prioritize and drive resolution on escalated incidents or problems that occur in production.

You will be a key resource to drive efficiencies through process improvements while developing repeatable automated database optimization methodologies.  Bank Solutions, and most importantly, our clients, expect high quality applications.  Success in your efforts accordingly will foster customer loyalty, and lead to improved client retention and overall client satisfaction with Fiserv.

A key characteristic in the success of this role will be technical aptitude.  The creation of new, and the maintenance of the existing Fiserv automated database engineering toolsets, requires programming experience.  It is critical that you know how to leverage CI/CD pipeline technologies such as Ansible and Jenkins in developing database optimization playbooks that drive optimal application performance.  You must also exercise strong problem-solving skills with limited assistance.

This demanding yet exciting role allows you to establish and build relationships across Fiserv to facilitate timely, cost-effective and efficient testing practices of Fiserv solutions. You will become a Subject Matter Expert for the products assigned to you and a “Go To” technical resource for standard quality assurance best practices.  This will bring a great sense of accomplishment for you personally in achieving the goals of Fiserv and most importantly our clients.
