Team Profile:
The Fixed Income Division (FID) Credit team is focused on delivering the technology that allows Morgan Stanley to continue to grow its highly successful corporate credit trading business - a key growth area for the Firm. The key objectives for the Flow Credit technology team are to continue delivering on electronification and automation of the Credit Flow businesses, and also to enhance and renovate our suite of internally built trading systems. Delivering on these initiatives will allow the firm to take advantage of market opportunities and drive revenue.

We require strong C# developers to work within a global team on our new and on-going projects. You will be working on the clients of highly distributed, low latency trading platforms based on C# front ends and Java/Scala back ends. The systems book trades, continuously calculate prices and associated metrics, allow historical time-series analysis and connect directly with several electronic markets. The C# clients control all aspects of the system from algorithmic trading configuration to electronic feeds and require clear, intuitive design. Likewise, the systems have high update rates and require very powerful and optimized UIs and servers to cope with these demands.

The client is built using a combination of WinForms and WPF with all new components being built in WPF. The server is built in Java/Scala and relies on modern technologies and approaches such as reactive programming, cloud computing, micro services and distributed caching. In addition to new features and enhancements, we are looking to continue to renovate, improve and selectively rewrite parts of the existing system.

Role:
- Your role will involve all aspects of the software development life cycle including gathering requirements, analysis of existing systems/functionality, design and implementation, all the way through to production roll out and subsequent support. The role will be focussed on UI features and architecture but does not preclude you from contributing to the Java server plant
