Murex: Release & Configuration Management Lead



Your role
Your role
Are you a technical visionary with leadership ability? Do you have a track record as a senior technical leader on Murex implementations? Do you understand the challenges around managing Murex configuration across a large multi-stream program, and understand how to solve them? Are you solid as a rock when you're juggling a lot of parallel deliveries? We're looking for someone like this to:

– Own configuration management across the Murex program, and manage this across all stages of the SDLC
– Define a consistent and sustainable approach, and drive the development teams to adhere to this
– Take control of the existing team, assume supervisory accountability, and drive the transformation to greater efficiency and effectiveness

You will:

– Own the maintenance and control of the content of all key non-production environments within the program
– Ensure that deployment processes are automated as far as is possible
– Manage the transition from existing processes and tooling to CMS
– Have deep experience working with and managing murex configuration (you'll probably be familiar with tools such as CTT and Reformx)
– Understand how to use Git, Jenkins and other SCM/CI tools; you'll understand continuous integration practices and principles, and know how and when these can be applied to Murex (and when they can't)
– Have a track record of successfully defining significant process change, and driving its adoption through a large organization
– Understand the difference between config-as-code, static data and transient data, and define an approach that supports all of them
– Understand how to minimize manual configuration deployment in a Murex program; the tools and techniques required to do so
– Work closely with the production team ('BAS') to ensure deployments and controls around non-prod environments are aligned with production releases and controls

Your team
Your role will be in the Murex program team in London (the team is a global team). The Murex program is a large strategic initiative to replatform UBS's rates, credit and FX businesses onto Murex from the various legacy systems on which they currently run. The objectives for the program are:

• Massively simplify the Fixed Income technology environment
• Increase operational control and efficiency
• Enable our regulatory agenda
• Establish the building blocks for a more cost effective operating model
• Support revenue in all products

The program is run across the business and technology, involving both permanent and vendor staff. It is recognised within the industry as a transformative program that ensures UBS's platform is uniquely well placed to face the new challenges of the industry.
