The Ramp development team is part of the Global Markets Referential & Data Group.

Ramp is our clients in-house developed system for global storage and distribution of internally contributed interest rate, credit derivatives, FX and Commodities market data. Ramp is the underlying system for most of the Banks PnL and Risk Systems. It is used regularly by >5000 front office and middle office users via their desktop applications. It is also used by the compute farms for calculating Risk & PnL. The system processes >10 Billion requests per day. The architecture is an n-tier distributed architecture using TIBCO-Rendezvous as a middleware and multiple Microsoft SQL Server installations for persistent data storage.

Ramp has two closely related systems:

Config Manager is similar to RAMP and has a common code base. It is used globally to store static data and has versioning capability. It's like a global version control system.

Lightweight Event Notification System - allowing various IT systems and users to orchestrate work via event messages.

The team follows Agile Scrum working with a 2-week sprint, where continuous improvement is encouraged by holding retrospectives and adding the actions to the subsequent sprint.

The use of modern C++ (C++14/17/20) is encouraged and we are using Visual Studio 2019 although we do need to maintain a legacy code base on Visual Studio 2015 (C++11)


The role is to develop and support these applications, as well as working on several smaller ancillary systems and admin / monitoring tools.

Due to the criticality of the RAMP system, it is vital that applicants are highly motivated, enthusiastic and can work methodically when under pressure. Candidates must also possess good analytical and problem solving skills.

Knowledge of OO programming and development in C++ is essential, along with some database experience (preferably SQL Server). Familiarity with client/server design is recommended, as is an understanding of distributed computing (and to a lesser extent, TIBCO Rendezvous). Knowledge of financial markets is desirable but not essential, and some training will be provided.

The primary requirement for the job is solid C++ in a client server environment using Microsoft and TIBCO technology.
