Banks know they cannot compete dollar for dollar for top tech talent and are starting to adjust their offerings to better position themselves; “As an industry we’re doing a better job at telling our technology story — the fact that we have smart engineers solving complex problems,” Amy Brady, CIO at KeyCorp., said to American Banker; banks are using their various resources and changing how teams work to provide a better environment for talent; agile development is being implemented by KeyCorp, this allows tech teams to work in short bursts as opposed to long cycles; banks are also bringing tech talent closer to the business side, the days of tech teams being in separate buildings away from the business are gone.
