The team's responsibilities span providing a rich reference data system of financial products (bonds, futures, options, FX spots/forwards, deposits, swaps, commodities, swaptions, cdx, cds, equities, etc), building infrastructure for keeping the reference data current and accurate, and providing multiple means of dissemination to downstream systems (such as analytics, risk, and trader systems). Team members interact directly with portfolio teams and other technology teams, so solid communication skills are essential. The team owns the entire software lifecycle, from requirements and design, through implementation, to production releases and support. Release cycles are tight, so in addition to strong development skills, you must have demonstrated the ability to adapt to changing conditions and learn quickly. There are no business analysts on the team, so we expect developers to have sufficient business and product knowledge to understand the requirements on their own. That being said, this is not a particularly Quantitative role - there is a separate Analytics team that undertakes valuation and related work. We focus more on building up and supporting the technical infrastructure.
