Placement and duration
Analysts will be pre-placed in a department within Technology and, upon completion of the training programme, they will join a technology team that best matches their skills and interests.
Analysts join in August. Depending on their technical skills, graduates attend either the Application Development or the Infrastructure Engineering track of the training programme. This 15-week global programme includes an orientation to the Firm, intensive technology training and an introduction to proprietary technologies, and culminates with a four-week group project. The Programme allows graduates to build a strong network among their peers and build the comprehensive skills required to prepare them for a full-time role and a long-term career.
Based on their skills, Analysts will be matched to available projects within a Development or Infrastructure team:
Development Teams: Our development teams design, develop and maintain applications used by our business units. Daily activities include meeting with clients to gather and analyse requirements. They make system design decisions, evaluate, integrate and develop necessary software, and then test and deploy applications to production. Developing high-performing, low-latency electronic trading systems and evolving complex workflows and life-cycle management capabilities are just some of the projects available for developers.
Infrastructure Teams: Our infrastructure-facing teams develop cutting-edge systems to run our business. Our engineers provide tools, applications and platforms such as the Firm's networks, computing hardware, operating systems and databases for the Firm's trading applications, mobile applications and other end-user applications.
