Not your typical banker: Coming to work every day in sneakers and jeans, conceptualising future office work spaces and mocking out wireframes for new digital product offerings – that’s all in a day’s work for a UX designer at DBS. We hear from one himself. http://go.dbs.com/dbsuxdesigner

“Why would a bank have anything to do with hackathons? That was my initial question when DBS hosted one such event on blockchain technology last year.

But I joined out of curiosity anyway and it turned out to be a fulfilling experience for me. I had not expected people from the other teams to be so forthcoming in sharing and some even gave advice on how to improve our ideas.

This spirit of supportiveness and open sharing is also strong in DBS. From my colleagues to other internal stakeholders, everyone lives by the employee code of being RED – Respectful, Easy to work with, and Dependable.

This includes my department head who stayed on with me past office hours one Friday evening to walk me through the entire process of human-centered design, which was still a new concept to me then.

Through this episode, I witnessed my boss’ dedication to groom juniors, so they can also deliver high quality work. It is truly motivating to know that I have a nurturing environment to grow in.”

"Functional programming may one day be the new paradigm to replace object-oriented programming. Developers need to keep an open mind and always stay relevant with new skills.

Being a relevant and pragmatic programmer means being willing to get your hands dirty and dive deep into codes. This was something I realised in one of my earlier projects here.

While I was developing the front end of an app for DBS Treasures, the bank was amid modernising its legacy systems. This made the process harder, as I had to pick up frameworks that were totally new to me.

Not only did I have to learn the new frameworks in 1-2 days, I also had to perform debugging on the spot before it could disrupt any business operation. The ability to pick up new technologies and quickly familiarise myself with them became a skill that I am working to hone even to this day.

DBS has been a good starting point for young developers like me, who want to get their hands on industry-wide practices like Scrum and Agile. I believe the DBS SEED programme would offer the opportunity if you are looking to enter the tech space like me.”

[DBS Bank] Did you know that women in Singapore live an average of 4.
Posted 1 month ago

Did you know that women in Singapore live an average of 4.5 years longer than men? What that in fact means, is that women will need to save more for their long-term future.

Our DBS Head of Financial Planning, Mr Brandon Lam says, “A smaller retirement fund coupled with a longer life expectancy for women further emphasises the need for them to focus on financial planning”. Mr Lam also believes that sufficient hospitalisation and critical illness coverage should stand as the core foundation of a woman’s portfolio.

“I am a tech executive at DBS as well as a co-founder of two start-ups. The culture here promotes intrapreneurship and with support from my boss and initiatives like DBS' HotSpot Accelerator, I co-founded Flide, an automated software that helps create beautiful presentations in minutes. Such initiatives make my work life more meaningful because I am someone who has many interests and ideas.

Working here is almost like working in a start-up. There is strong emphasis on transformation and concepts like agile and human-centered design. The values and skills I have learnt so far have also benefitted my start-ups, providing the well-rounded exposure I need.

To the young graduates, I would say it's good to keep an open mind, to constantly discover what other people are doing, and learn from everyone. This is also the basis for DBS' digital transformation and you can see how we are the best digital bank in the world now," - Sam Ho, Tech Executive at DBS and co-founder of Flide.
