MORE ABOUT THIS JOB
TECHNOLOGY

Our team of engineers builds solutions to the most complex problems. We develop cutting-edge systems and processes that form the core of our key business and enable transactions to move in milliseconds. We provide real-time access to critical deal information and crunch billions of data points each day to inform firm-wide market insights and strategies. Team members have the opportunity to work at the forefront of technology innovation alongside industry leaders and make significant contributions to the field.

The Securities Trade Processing Technology team maintains and develops the post-execution trade processing platform that interface directly with the front office to process firm and customer transactions.

Key responsibilities include allocation capture, trade figuration, trade explosion, trade aggregation, reporting of trades to exchanges or other venues, customer confirmation generation & transmission, and booking the completed transactions downstream to the firm's books & records, and for settlement. A diverse and increasing set of product types are handled by MO systems across cash equities, futures, options, warrants & convertible bonds. In addition, expanding the team's focus to cover fixed income products is a major focus for the coming year and beyond. The position of Middle Office systems at the heart of the trade flow provides the opportunity to see and understand the entire securities trade flow. There are interactions with technology teams from those looking after trading and sales functions to teams responsible for supporting settlement and maintaining the firm's books and records. On the technical side, there is a close partnership with the Technology Infrastructure organisation to ensure that the best use is made of hardware and database resources. The strategic Middle Office processing platform is Hydra, a high-throughput, distributed, scalable architecture capable of handling many millions of transactions per day and plays a critical role in expanding the firm's business to new markets / clients / regulations / product lines. The team is global, with a tightly integrated structure across teams in Bangalore, Singapore, Hong Kong, New Jersey and London. Developers in different offices frequently collaborate closely on projects or day-to-day issues.
