Overall purpose of role

The hiring team is responsible for helping to build the strategic RFT Credit Risk Generation system (XRisk / Eagle), which is undergoing a large transformation as part of the Multi-factor Interest Rate (MFIR) project. This project brings a considerable increase in the complexity of the market data simulation and trade pricing methodologies, and subsequently poses new performance challenges.

The team is moving to a scalable microservices-based architecture, utilising the RFT Wolf platform (C#) for workflow orchestration and the RFT Core Risk Engine Framework (CRE) with QAPrimary pricing library (C++).
