As part of the Front Office IT department the EPB team oversees development and support of tools used by Equity Prime Brokerage, and Security finance traders, sales, and operations officers.
The team is composed of 5 developers and application support analysts, all based in Hong Kong (DevOps model). The team is based in the dealing room and interact daily with the Front and Middle Officers.
HK EPB team is part of a “community” of technology teams spread across the world. Today, each team is nearly entirely focused on its “own” application. While the 5 or 6 applications in the EPB scope are all servicing the same business chain (Equity Prime Brokerage, front to middle office), they are effectively managed separately.
We want all teams of this community to move to a more “fungible” model, where developers are not attached to an application anymore, but able to intervene on any part (application) of the chain, based on business and product owner priorities. This initiative is led from Paris but requires a strong input from Hong Kong.
