FIS Front Arena is a leading global provider of financial software. We build systems for financial trading, risk management and position control. Our systems enable banks, hedge funds and other financial institutions to make critical decisions with confidence, execute their orders and follow up their positions. Independent of what asset class being traded: whether it is stocks, commodities, rates or currencies; or whether it’s done through an exchange or over the counter, we’ve got it covered. But that’s just parts of it. We support the whole process from sell-side to buy-side, front-to-back.
What you will be doing
As a Functional Analyst in our functional development team you will work closely together with a Stockholm based team of five highly motivated developers and functional analysts. The development is done per the agile methodology scrum, where development is broken down in four-week iterations. The team takes full responsibility for its solution which includes both working on continuous improvements as well as innovations. In your role, you will together with the team be responsible for the quality assurance of the functional area. The PnL team works on functionality which is interfacing with pricing and modelling of financial instruments and derivatives in all asset classes. The team takes ownership of real-time portfolio- and risk calculations, as well as enterprise risk calculations and reporting. The solutions are typically developed in C/C++ and our proprietary Arena Data Flow Language (ADFL).
As a Functional Analyst you will:
- Develop domain knowledge to enhance our product solution
- Build and maintain automated tests and test data
- Plan and perform test activities
- Interact with developers, product owners, other functional analysts and other teams to ensure delivery of a sound solution
We will offer you challenges, where understanding customer requirements and solving problems is a key part. We believe that the best solutions are built if you can be proud of what you produce! By working closely together with your team you will get a deep understanding of market needs, primarily within valuation parameters used in valuation models and market risk.
