Are you an accomplished Java developer with server-side and web development experience, familiar with Linux, looking to expand your horizons with C++, KDB, Kafka and more, with a group that owns software that processes every single order and trade in listed securities conducted by the Equities business in the world?

Speak to us about an opportunity to work in this dynamic and diverse team. Committed to Devops, each team member is responsible for taking each user story from requirements all the way to production. As a department, we are in the middle of a major re-engineering project, transforming one of the firm's largest applications into a cloud-ready, elastic application running on the private cloud.


Morgan Stanley's Equities business is #1 in the world, and our department is involved in every single transaction conducted in Institutional Securities involving stocks, ETFs, Futures and Options listed on exchanges anywhere in the world. We ensure that every trade and every order is recorded correctly and delivered safely and efficiently to every system and database that needs them. On the busiest days we process nearly a billion records globally. Not a single record can be lost or corrupted.

Among these trades, some are conducted off-venue to improve execution performance and reduce brokerage and exchange fees. We look after software that report these off-venue trades to regulators in a timely fashion, as required by regulations across the world, in order to maintain transparent and orderly markets.


Your first assignment will be to look after a time-critical system written in C++, with automated tests written in Python. So you will be able to gain practical experience in this famous language - one that Morgan Stanley has continued to invest in heavily.

Many of the applications owned by the team are written in Java, and front-ends in Angular. So the rest of the team will call on your expertise in these technologies as you build business knowledge to contribute to those applications in the future.


We are a small yet diverse department operating from 6 locations worldwide. You will be able to work on a variety of technologies and with people around the world.

You will gain hands-on experience of how the equities market operates, and how our systems and expertise are depended on by over 60 groups upstream and 20 downstream.
