Morgan Stanley is a leading global financial services firm providing a wide range of investment banking, securities, investment management and wealth management services. The Firm's employees serve clients worldwide including corporations, governments and individuals from more than 747 offices in 42 countries.
In Morgan Stanley, Technology works as a strategic partner with Morgan Stanley business units and the world's leading technology companies to redefine how we do business in ever more global, complex, and dynamic financial markets. Morgan Stanley's sizeable investment in technology results in quantitative trading systems, cutting-edge modelling and simulation software, comprehensive risk and security systems, and robust client-relationship capabilities, plus the worldwide infrastructure that forms the backbone of these systems and tools. Our insights, our applications and infrastructure give a competitive edge to clients' businesses—and to our own.
At Morgan Stanley we have created a platform to allow us to rapidly write financial applications using just Scala code. A key part of this is generating frontends based upon Scala constructs. Our team is responsible for developing this aspect of the platform. There are 10s of applications, and 100s of developers across the Fixed Income area of the bank using our code. Web technology has improved very quickly in recent years, and we have been able to migrate the frontend layer without changing application business logic.
We are looking for a developer who understands the challenges involved to join our team.
You will be part of a global team, so good communication skills are essential.
We use common tools such as Git, Stash and Jira to work efficiently.
We utilize Angular and React, as well as Electron, but we value language knowledge over specific library knowledge.
We follow an Agile methodology, with daily scrums. Qualifications:
-Strong Java coding skills
-Good at understanding what other developers are trying to achieve, and help solve their problems, both by explaining and enhancing features.
-Stakeholder management is important in balancing requests for customization against platform-wide consistency.
