Many developers at this investment bank – in fact, 1000s, but this team of circa 100 are primarily responsible for building the bank’s core state of the art application.
The team is embedded into the business which allows it to be very innovative from a technical standpoint, and are all very hands-on in all aspects of system design, business requirements, analytics, implementation, deployment, and end-user interaction.
Key clients will be all the heads of trading for the various business areas and other technical architects for of front-line teams and external customers. Core technologies used here are Python for the business logic, C++ for performance and modern JS along with AWS and containers. Hard CompSci problems include state of the are UIs, super-fast calculation engines, workflow, real-time market data (big) analysis.
The core system components are heavily multi-threaded asynchronous servers, a globally distributed IDE with one-click deployment, dependency graph framework to model financial objects, and a Distributed object database scaled to thousands of simultaneous clients allowing a user in NY, within a sub-sec of replication, see what a user in London can see.
