VP Development Lead - Pricing & Trading
Ref No.: 18-00382
Location: Whippany, New Jersey
Position Type:Direct Placement
Start Date: 08/16/2018
VP Development Lead - Pricing & Trading
Wholesale Lending Technology supports the transformation of the Wholesale Lending Business, for which the current state infrastructure has an over reliance on legacy platforms, high levels of remediation costs and lacks automation and straight through processing.

We aim to consolidate and upgrade existing infrastructure to eliminate remediation efforts, support risk weighted assets (RWA) reduction strategies by improving data quality and MIS for decision making, decommission 70% of applications, and provide a consistent end to end processing platform for the business. This will improve client experience through a simplified customer journey, self service capabilities and will reduce cycle times and cost to serve.


Purpose of role
  • Software development and design
  • Analysis of problems and solution delivery
Your Role
  • Strong problem-solving and analytical skills are required. The role is not "coding to a spec”, but rather understanding high-level business requirements and working as a team (with guidance) to craft solutions to meet those business needs. Each member of the team is expected to contribute to the solution, not merely follow direction.
  • Though the role does not involve creating new frameworks or protocols, it may involve implementing new frameworks and messaging protocols provided by internal architecture teams or market standards bodies. These standards may not have been implemented before and there may be gaps / inconsistencies to reconcile. Collaboration and attention to detail are critical. The loan product is complex and so are the frameworks and messages to support it. Team members must be comfortable working within that complexity and weighing options for an optimal, yet pragmatic solution.
  • Demonstrated project experience from inception and design to delivery. Support and maintenance experience is expected, but a significant design and implementation experience is required.
  • Demonstrated architecture and system design experience. Must be able to distil high-level business requests into concrete and actionable implementation details that meet business and industry standards.
  • Demonstrated experience leading a development team and / or principal development of a significant software project / product.
