Institutional Corporate Technology (ICT)
Institutional Corporate Technology (ICT) is part of Technology. This group is responsible for developing enterprise applications for a diverse set of businesses including Fixed Income, Equities, Commodities, Investment Banking, Research, and Global Capital Markets. In addition, ICT provides technology solutions for client-aligned groups and company-wide divisions, such as Finance and Operations, post-trade functions within the Institutional Securities Group and standardized data and enterprise-wide services to provide leverage to the Firm's businesses.
The Fixed Income Division (FID) Credit team is focused on delivering the technology that allows Client to continue to grow its highly successful corporate credit trading business, a key growth area for the Firm. Latest initiatives in this space include continued virtualization and automation of the flow businesses, as well as enhancing and renovating our suite of internally built trading systems. This will allow the firm to take advantage of market opportunities and drive revenue.
We require a strong technologist with proven leadership skills to work within a global team on our new and on-going projects. You will be working on highly distributed, low latency trading platforms based on C# front ends and Java/Scala back ends. The systems book trades, continuously calculate prices and associated metrics, allow historical time-series analysis and connect directly with several electronic markets. The C# client controls all aspects of the system from algorithmic trading configuration to electronic feeds and requires clear, intuitive design. Likewise, the systems have high update rates and require very powerful and optimized UIs and servers to cope with these demands.
The client is built using a combination of WinForms and WPF with all new components being built in WPF. The servers are built using Java and Scala and rely on modern technologies and approaches such as reactive programming, cloud computing, micro services and distributed caching. In addition to new features and enhancements, we are looking to continue to renovate, improve and selectively rewrite parts of the existing system.
