Job summary

The Department and Position

MASAI is an ambitious project critical to the Bank’s strategic pivot towards data-centric operations.

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.
