MORE ABOUT THIS JOB

How do you test a hundred million lines of code, every time a change is made? Help us build highly scalable, low-touch systems to allow our engineering efforts to scale while decreasing risk and cost. Use your engineering and problem solving skills to build new SDLC platform systems using cutting-edge technologies and design principles to solve challenging problems. Take ownership - both of what you build, and across our broader functional area. Our software engineers work with stakeholders across the globe within almost every area of the firm. Work on our multi-year greenfield initiative to build our strategic public-cloud regression test infrastructure, replacing decades’ worth of legacy systems and streamlining processes for our client engineers across the firm.

THE ENGINEERING DIVISION

Our team of engineers builds solutions to the most complex problems. We develop cutting-edge systems and processes that form the core of our key business and enable transactions to move in milliseconds. We provide real-time access to critical deal information and crunch billions of data points each day to inform firm-wide market insights and strategies. Team members have the opportunity to work at the forefront of technology innovation alongside industry leaders and make significant contributions to the field.

WAVEFRONT ENGINEERING

The SecDb SDLC Engineering team (Wavefront Engineering) provides development and deployment services to a large and diverse engineering community (circa. 3,500 engineers) that uses SecDb for running their products. We also provide services for the firm’s control functions to ensure change management adheres to our quality standards and regulatory obligations. The SecDb platform is principally used for risk management but is also employed widely for other functions. The platform supports both compiled (C++, Java, Scala) and scripted languages (Slang, the firm’s proprietary scripting language, JavaScript and Python) and facilitates over 2,000 production releases a day across a shared codebase and runtime. We want to modernize SecDb SDLC services to converge on vendor and open source solutions used more broadly in the firm and are seeking talented engineers to help shape the future of SecDb SDLC and deliver it to our users. Key to our success is to maintain a shared and rapid development environment while ensuring the effectiveness of the controls required for safeguarding the change activities.

Responsibilities

• Develop and enhance the testing frameworks that underpin SecDb’s software change management processes for all the languages stacks SecDb supports.

• Help to uplift our regression analysis suite that helps to remove human investigation from the analysis of test failures.
