Fixed Income, Currency, and Commodities (FICC) Engineering plays a key role in the firm’s ability to provide liquidity and execution services for institutional clients around the world, two important revenue drivers for the firm. In FICC Engineering we use both open source industry standard and internal proprietary technologies to build cutting edge platforms for pricing, execution, and control over each of these millions of transactions.
Who We Look For
The FICC Platform Engineering team helps drives the divisions platform strategy by partnering with both core engineering and engineers in the front office (and by platform, we mean compute, runtime, networks, databases etc.). It achieves this at scale through leveraging data, APIs and automation to give us oversight on thousands of distributed components that allow the FICC franchise to run its business and service its clients. We achieve this through harvesting various heterogeneous platform APIs in the firm into a consolidated data platform. This platform contains hundreds of unique data sets that provide transparency on many of the key parts of the our distributed runtime. This allows engineers within the division to get transparency on their strategic platform, whilst also providing transparency on the areas that are deemed legacy and incurring both friction and cost to ongoing strategic endeavours. The team consists of application developers who are very data science oriented with a passion for designing APIs and data sets that faithfully model various aspects of our distributed runtime. The team has aspirations to extend some of their data offerings to encompass machine learning to gain greater value from the investment in our data. This is quite a nascent area of innovation where we have seen significant value being yielded through such investment. Our investment in modelling platforms through data, has allowed us to oversee and manage an environment spanning the entire globe totalling hundreds of thousands of cores of compute across on premise, exchange colocations and public cloud service providers. This is a unique opportunity to work very closely with systems spanning the entire Fixed Income, Currencies and Commodities business, and leverage automation to streamline management of this large distributed eco-system.
