The Company Is a Top-Tier International Investment Bank head-quartered in Sydney. The bank has recently embarked on a large scale, bank-wide (5 year) Digital Transformation Initiative. As part of this programme of work the Bank are completely overhauling their cross-product real-time, Java-based Risk Calculation & Management platforms.
The build will include moving away from legacy C++ solutions to completely in-house built Java/Python/Scala systems which will be used to calculate Credit, Market and Counterparty Risk for the capital markets business.
The Transformation includes re-writing the back-ends in the latest version of Java, building out new web-based front-end, implementing Cloud (AWS/GCP) technologies all whilst following Agile and DevOps methodologies/processes.
As well as the use of new and emerging technologies and embarking on large-scale greenfield projects, the bank pride themselves on their work environment - which includes a healthy work/life balance, an 'engineering first' culture which favours technologists and their ways of working as well as on site cafes with complementary food and drinks.
