Our sizeable investment in technology results in leading-edge tools, software, and systems. Our insights, applications, and infrastructure give a competitive edge to clients’ businesses-and to our own.

What We Do:

The Listed Sales and Trading team is a diverse and inclusive technology team. We are responsible to build and manage some of the most critical trading platforms of Morgan Stanley. We are working directly with our institutional clients (sales and trading desks, external clients) to help manage and transfer their risk.

Our massively scalable software and systems cover a wide-range of asset classes, from traditional equities cash, derivatives, ETF, FX, to large part of Fixed Income, commodities, bonds, swaps and cross-asset instruments. We support fully automated low-latency order handling up to highly complex manual and customized workflow required by some of our advanced users. We develop cutting-edge systems that are transforming our key business and enable transactions to occur in microseconds.

While our infrastructure is mostly written in C++ and C#, we are building services in Java, .NET Core, C, KDB, Python and Typescript. We are open-minded about our technology choices, leverage and contribute to open-source and cloud technologies.

We are not only invested in our clients but also our people. We strive to provide opportunities for our employees to learn, grow and have a healthy work-life balance. We have a casual work environment and a number of social activities.
