Team Profile:
Morgan Stanley’s Equity Swaps business is going through a major investment programme to enhance and extend its technology platform such that the business can scale. This programme includes front, middle and back office functions to provide an integrated, end-to-end platform for Swaps trade capture and deal management.

The Equity Swaps team owns several applications that form the strategic platform for the global Swaps business. There are some mature applications that are being renovated to support new business, regulatory requirements (e.g. Mifid2) and changes in our working environment (e.g. Brexit). These systems manage the trade workflow and integrate with other booking systems as well as downstream confirms, risk and regulatory reporting applications.

Reflecting the global nature of our business and systems, the team is distributed between London, New York and Pune. Our strongest location in terms of developer numbers is London, the ideal time zone for running a global team and where many of our business sponsors are also located.

The Quality Assurance (QA) is run from London but the testing team is located offshore in Pune almost entirely. QA activities include but are not limited to manual functional testing, GUI test automation and test environment management. Some areas to grow into are: performance benchmarking & monitoring and back-end test automation. We’re looking for a Senior QA who would be assisting the QA Lead in London to run this team.
