Job summary

About CMI
Capital Markets IT (CMI) is the IT department within the bank focused on solutions related to Capital Markets. This includes Front Office (FO) booking platforms, Risk Management (RM) control and regulatory reporting systems, financial product and contract valuation systems, and much more. It is the department most directly exposed to the bank’s financial operations.

MASAI is an ambitious project critical to the Bank’s strategic pivot towards data-centric operations. In the past, separate systems maintained their data separately, modeling the same data in incompatible ways and depending on ad-hoc and sometimes brittle data sharing mechanisms, creating a complex web of interdependent systems and no centralized repository of data. MASAI was initially created to satisfy regulatory requirements set out by the Basel Committee as part of their FRTB capital rules, but quickly became the central focus in the Bank’s push towards a more data-centric approach. It is based on Big Data technology, which allows horizontally-scalable management of data at and beyond the petabyte scale.

About the Position
As a member of the MASAI project’s development team, you will develop robust processes to ingest huge amounts of data from disparate systems, and build processes that transform and use that data. The core technology used is Apache Spark on top of HDFS, and development is primarily in Java. The position is ideal for someone with a strong interest in data processing and data science: either a confirmed expert in Big Data technologies or a strong developer keen on gaining expertise in that domain.

Besides having greater development experience than an intermediate or junior developer, a senior developer will be expected to make sometimes complex architectural decisions that balance difficult trade-offs, and defend those decisions to management and clients within the bank; he or she will be expected to take a leadership role in the team, mentoring less experienced colleagues and helping them progress.

All candidates, but particularly seniors, will be held to high a standard when it comes to communication, both oral and written. You should have good expository style, be able to explain yourself clearly and concisely, especially when the subject is technical and complex. It goes without saying that your English must be extremely fluent. Any knowledge of French would also be an asset.
