Software Engineer (Java) – Financial Markets Pricing Architecture – CCR / SIMM
ING is a global bank with a strong European base. Our 57,000 employees serve around 39.3 million customers, corporate clients and financial institutions in over 40 countries. Our purpose is to empower people to stay a step ahead in life and in business. We are proud to be a bank winning multiple awards in categories ranging from Customer Service excellence to innovation in a few consecutive years, including recent Global Finance magazine's Most Innovative Bank in Western Europe 2020.
The ING Pricing Architecture (IPA) platform consists of multiple components that enable real-time and batch calculations of financial risk metrics and simulations (e.g. XVA, PFE, Value at Risk, Expected Shortfall, Bilateral Margining, pre-deal derivatives Pricing) which are driven by new banking regulations as well as advanced Risk analysis on the derivative product portfolio of Financial Markets (interest rates, credits, foreign exchange). This platform is in the heart of the IT landscape for our global dealing rooms and risk managers in Asia, Europe and Americas, with 7-9 scrum teams spread across 4 locations (Amsterdam, Brussels, Bucharest and Singapore), cooperating to evolve it towards target ING Financial Markets IT vision.
What we are looking for
We are in search of strong Developer who is technically passionate, solution-focused and able to contribute to design, development, test automation and hardening (security, stability, deployment) of our in-house-developed pricing & risk components. We live by our Orange Code that is built upon our values (We are honest, We are prudent and We are responsible) and is reflected in our behaviors (We take it on and make it happen, We help others to be successful and We are always a step ahead). We expect to get a buy-in on them from successful candidates.
As a Software Engineer you will:
In the CCR (Counterparty Credit Risk) and SIMM (Standardized Initial Margin Model) squads and component specifically JEE is used. Overall the platform and most components use Java 8+ and (very locally in some places) other JVM languages. Overall the platform is moving gradually to SpringBoot and microservices.. Knowledge on multi-threading, collections, spring(boot) and java core in general are selection criteria. This system takes care of end-of-day regulatory calculations which ING wants to expand towards advanced internal models that are more capital efficient and lead to more competitive prices. SIMM is focused on assuring that ING has sufficient capital (margin) against the counterparties we have trades with to cover any future potential losses.
