Production Support (DevOps), FX and Commodities

About the CCEM PM team
The CCEM (Commodities, Currencies & Emerging Markets) Production Management team is a DevOps modelled front office application support team responsible for the stability and resiliency of the global CCEM applications. We are a truly global team of 30+ members with the presence in AMER, EMEA and Asia and we use Follow-the-Sun model for the production support.

In Singapore, we interact directly with the Front Office traders, Middle office users as well as with our Application Development and Global Infrastructure partners. The CCEM business is highly electronic and relies heavily on the high availability (stability) and agility of our application software. Our team's top focus is automation and tooling using DevOps principals that will continuously eliminate repeat work and enhances our productivity on YOY basis.

This job requires a decent mix of business and technology expertise. Our team is fairly technical as everyone is empowered to access and fix the application software (code and configuration) and make recommendations to the developers. We deal with front office trading applications, risk management systems, pricing engines, client STP flow, middle office booking flow and end-of-day feeds to various downstream.
