Honestly if you're going to work for one of the five big banking cores the #1 way to work there is to live in the town where they have an HQ. Do an internship out of college and get a junior role.

A lot of them also hire outsourced teams. Not a lot of competing with Big Tech for engineers.

Do folks who get into this space typically stay there and make a specialty of it, or do they move to and from other disciplines?

As far as I've seen they make a specialty of it. You can make good money bouncing between the five cores and to banks themselves. Each bank has more than one core if you can believe it.

One of the major banks has.. 1000 cores from all the acquisitions and different product iterations.
