Citigroup is staffing up for the robotic revolution.
The New York-based financial services giant has plastered online jobs boards advertising roles at a new automation center that will deploy new robotic technology throughout the bank.
Mark Costiglio, a Citi spokesperson, declined to comment on the matter.
The so-called Smart Automation Centre is looking for staff in at least five cities including Tampa, London, Singapore, New York and Budapest.
“The Smart Automation Centre will be responsible for partnering with our businesses and functions across Citi to ensure all the elements are in place for the rapid deployment of Robotics and other related technologies,” according to one ad on the firm’s talent search engine.
The bank is seeking talent spanning the seniority spectrum from junior engineers to senior vice presidents. The positions require varying levels of tech expertise, but the bank wants the center’s employees to fit a very specific cultural mold.
“Must be entrepreneurial, and thrive in environments with a blank canvas that will allow you to flex your intellectual muscle to contribute to building a strategy from the ground up,” one job ad said.
The firm is looking for at least two senior program managers to serve as a robotic “catalyst” who will partner with divisions across the bank to identify new technologies and lead their development from the use-case stage to full scale production. The SVP would also work with various groups within the back to familiarize them with robotics and automation.
