    What We Do

    • The Market Data Infra team is a global team that works closely with trading, desk strats and various engineering teams to provide efficient firmwide solutions for Market Data.
    • Some of the projects we works on are:
      • APIs for Market Data retrieval, modification, storage
      • Expression of market data in various coordinate systems and mappings between them
      • Tools that allow trading to maintain intra-day live curves. These tools are customizable to different desk needs and built in collaboration with desk strats.
      • APIs for creating intraday snapshots, transporting them and applying them.
      • APIs that publish large scale Market Data internally to allow downstream applications (e.g. live pricing tools, live risk tools) to seamlessly consume that data

We often say our people are our greatest asset and we take pride in supporting each colleague both professionally and personally.  From collaborative work spaces and mindfulness classes to working from home and flexible work options, we offer our people the support they need to reach their goals in and outside the office.
