Who we are:
This role is working within the Market Securities & Services (MSS) division, where technology is central to all aspects of our business – for example electronic trading in the financial markets.
River is the first ever HSBC-built Cash FX primary trading system (PTS). We are a 170 strong global team located across New York, Toronto, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, London and Krakow. The team covers a wide area of functions including:
Risk delivers client facing applications including risk managment
Trade Workflow is responsible for trade booking and lifecycle
Compute focuses on valuations
RODS manages trade storage
What we do:
We are building an in-house platform to support all primary functions for FX Trading (pricing, booking, routing, risk management and valuations) which is replacing a vendor platform. Our pods adhere to the DevOps ethos and work closely with the FX traders. Everyone in the team develops and releases components of the system into production. So far, we have performed 15,000 releases to build out our PTS and have demised the vendor platform in all trading sites.
The way we work
All our teams work in pods of 4-8 developers and work closely with the business
We are not ‘order takers’ but responsible for the service we are developing
For us that means:
o All our teams strive to do continuous delivery – we do small, incremental releases and follow agile practices
o We are empowered to use technology and tools to automate as much as possible
o We build small services and strive to break up monolithic systems where we have them
o Each small team is responsible for everything from the requirements to the development to running it in Production. If we build it we own it
