What We Do:
The Listed Sales and Trading team is a diverse and inclusive technology team. We are responsible for designing, developing and maintaining high performance global electronic trading systems for Morgan Stanley. We work directly with our institutional clients (sales and trading desks, external clients) to help enable new businesses, improve products, and manage their risk.
Our massively scalable software and systems cover a wide-range of asset classes, from equities, derivatives, ETF, FX, commodities, bonds, swaps and cross-asset instruments. We support fully automated low-latency order handling up to highly complex manual and customized workflow required by some of our advanced users. We develop cutting-edge systems that are transforming our key business and enable transactions to occur in microseconds.
While today our infrastructure is mostly written in C++ and Python, and our UI in C#, we are building new services in Java, .NET Core, and KDB, along with web components. We incorporate open source server platforms into our stack, including Redis, Kafka and ElasticSearch, and we apply DevOps tools and technologies. We are open-minded about our technology choices, leverage and contribute to open-source and cloud technologies. Our work is always client focused; our developers are problem-solvers and innovators.
We are not only invested in our clients but also our people. We strive to provide opportunities for our employees to learn, grow and have a healthy work-life balance.
