Implement software used to manage funding and collateral globally. This job provides the unique opportunity to write applications that provide a critical business function across the entire Institutional Securities Business. A constantly evolving business and regulatory environment will provide a stream of new challenges to the candidate.

The applicant should be a technically proficient and enthusiastic developer focused on C#/WPF/HTML5 User Interfaces with a desire to work on the full stack in order to help engineer new and existing components. Prior experience in finance will be useful, however, the ability and willingness to master new technical and business concepts will be considered.

The team develops and maintains IT systems that support Secured Financing. Secured Financing is performed by the Bank Resource Management (BRM) division within Institutional Securities and is responsible for funding the Firm's activities in a low cost and stable manner. The applications involved cover Repo Trading and Collateral Management and are critical real-time systems used by traders and operations staff globally, interfacing with a number of other critical firm systems (e.g. settlement and risk systems) as well as numerous external partners (e.g. e-trading platforms and tri-parties). We have a strong, agile development team of over 50 people located in London, New York, Budapest, Tokyo, and Bangalore. There is a good deal of collaborative team work both within the team and with our clients (Bank Resource Management and Operations).
