Electronic Trading Business Analyst PM - Ion Marketview - Investment Bank 

 Business Analyst is responsible for managing the delivery of key functionalities of our electronic trading applications.

Essentially we are looking for:

  • At least one substantial prior experience (3y+) as a business analyst / project manager in a large organisation
  • Strong knowledge of fixed income instruments, and associated trading workflows: Government Bonds, Interest Swaps, Repos, Futures and options
  • Extensive understanding of electronic trading venues, APIs and associated dataflows : market, static and trade data.
  • Significant experience of working with the ION Trading platform.
  • Significant prior professional experience in support, business analysis, project and/or product management, either at a financial institution or a software house
  • Excellent communication skills in English, spoken and written (other languages advantageous)
  • Innovative mentality
  • Active interest in design of system architecture
  • Excellent problem solving skills
  • Any prior experience with scripting, debugging or software development is a welcome plus.


In-scope instruments are all electronically-traded government, inflation and more structured bonds, swaps, futures and repos in all currencies worldwide, with a specific focus on EUR and USD.

Electronic venues include exchanges (eg Eurex, CME), dealer-to-dealer markets (eg MTS, BrokerTec, MOT, iSwap, TradX, GLMX) and dealer-to-customer markets (eg Bloomberg, Tradeweb, BondVision). Additionally, the platform handles all trading workflows associated with customer "voice" enquiries, interpreted and priced via in-house analytical libraries developed in partner teams.

  • The platform itself is an ecosystem of distinct, loosely coupled applications covering a wide range of functionality from pricing, quotation, auto-negotiation and execution to market aggregation, smart order routing and auto-hedging. Various trading workflows are supported, including vendor UIs and "chat bots".

    In Production, the application suite is deployed onto x3 distinct global datacentres (Tokyo, London, New-York) and operates under both high availability and real-time, low latency constraints, reacting to potentially "spiky" market conditions. On dealer-to-dealer markets, the Bank is "under obligation", meaning officially ranked as a factor of the permanence, tightness and tradability of its bid/offer contribution.

    For market connectivity and abstraction, the platform relies on both ION Trading software and internally-developed adaptors.
