  • MORE ABOUT THIS JOB

    Fixed Income, Currency, and Commodities (FICC) Technology plays a key role in the firm’s ability to help institutional clients buy and sell financial instruments on liquidity venues around the world, an important revenue driver for the firm. In FICC Technology 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.


    FICC Macro technology organization supports the business interests of the Interest Rates and Foreign exchange businesses in Asia.

Our team utilizes a rich software stack comprised of both open source and proprietary technologies (Slang/SecDb). We use Java to build distributed services and are in the process of redefining how we perform inter-process communication in our services oriented architecture.

We are investing heavily in HTML5, JavaScript, and Angular to build modern desktops for market making, market data aggregation, trade booking, risk, and data analytics.
