Equities Risk Pod Lead in MSS IT- Equities


If you’re looking for a career where you can make a real impression, join Global Service Center (GSC) HSBC and discover how valued you’ll be. HSBC is one of the largest banking and financial services organisations in the world, with operations in 64 countries and territories. We aim to be where the growth is, enabling businesses to thrive and economies to prosper, and, ultimately, helping people to fulfil their hopes and realise their ambitions.

We are currently seeking an experienced professional to join our team in the role of  Equities Risk Pod Lead



This position is the development lead role of a new Equities Risk development pod in within the wider Toronto Equity Derivatives IT team in HSBC’s Global Banking and Markets Division. The Equity Derivatives technology group spans the globe and services all client areas within the bank for Equities-related services. Curiosity and a growth mind-set driven by continuous learning are key values within our team.


What we do:


Operating across Paris, London, New York, Hong Kong, Poland, Guangzhou, and Toronto,  the Risk and PnL stream in Equity and Securities Financing Technology is responsible for:

-          Compute grids. Large-scale computation across 1000s of cores for intraday, EOD, and regulatory risk and pnl production

-          Risk Reporting databases and view servers

-          Distributed data services for position, product, market data and reference data information to provide the correct inputs for the risk systems. Bi-temporal database storage and query.

-          Large-scale adoption of cloud computing for our systems


We provide solutions to customers in all areas of the bank, including Front Office trading and sales, Market Risk, Finance, Product Control, Collateral and Margin groups.


About the Role

We’re looking for talented developers with a passion for designing, building, deploying and supporting large-scale systems in a rapidly-moving environment.


Equity Derivatives Technology is undergoing a large transformation project to entirely refresh our platforms for large-scale compute, global data services, pricing and risk and pnl production. We need experienced developers to help build out these services as we grow the new platform to fulfil our regulatory commitments, and to power business growth, especially in the structured products space.


The candidate will work on primarily new services, using modern Java on the server side, across our internal cloud and external clouds. Although the role is development-focussed, teams are expected to fully support their own applications, including deployment, release management, and user support, all the way to production. As such this role includes providing a follow the sun support model globally of the new Risk services stack in conjunction with the other regional teams in Equities technology.


This role is focussed on building out an event-based infrastructure to rework many of our core flows, moving us towards a real-time-by-default environment. You will build, on top of popular open-source data processing frameworks (including but not limited to Apache Kafka), use-cases such as

-          Stage and aggregate billions of regulatory risk result objects each day to send to our Front-to-Back data stores.

-          Implement processing, storage, and service functions for different classes of risk data, pricing inputs, reference data, to provide a universal real-time intraday capability for application clients.

-          Promote, where appropriate, the benefits of event-sourcing architectures and an event-first approach to design.



Your skills and experience:

You’re an experienced server-side developer with a technical background. You should be able to demonstrate problem-solving ability and be comfortable working in an agile environment with rapid release cycles. The focus will be on development of green-field services to level-up our platform. Roles are full-service, developers are expected to build, test, deploy and support their products within a global team.


You will ideally have experience of application architectures that take advantage of cloud deployment and the additional flexibility they offer to reduce downtime and maintenance overhead, respond to changing demand, and optimise cost.


Essential skills

·         Must be able to lead a team of developers and manage a book of work in conjunction with IT management and business customers.

·         Extensive experience of server-side development on top of the Java Virtual Machine.

·         Extensive knowledge of Java versions 11 and up (in projects, we work on versions 17 and are upgrading to 21).

·         Experience working in agile (SCRUM-related) cycles and coordination with multiple teams of developers and users

·         Solid knowledge of Git version control, and workflows around

·         Knowledge of distributed systems

·  Experience with performance tuning/optimisation (JVM)
·  Continuous Integration products such as TeamCity and Jenkins
·  Solid knowledge of Git version control, and workflows around
·  Development of distributed systems (data-intensive applications, concurrency)
·  Spring Boot/JPA

Highly advantageous

·         Experience working with Equity Derivatives products and systems

·         Knowledge of public cloud infrastructure such as GCP (preferred), AWS, Azure

·         Experience working in financial institutions and regulated IT environments

·         Python development/scripting
