Our client's tech stack is built using Python, C++ and JavaScript, which allows them to easily add more esoteric asset-backed security sectors like airplane leases, student loans, and credit card deals. Currently, they are working on migrating to a new service-oriented architecture, serving billions of requests per day. A cluster of hundreds of very powerful Linux machines help them to serve data, run simulations and provide a plethora of analytics to both internal and external clients. They are overhauling their user interface and client APIs to be service based. This team at our client is responsible for all data, cash flows and analytics of the two million plus bonds that make up the structured products universe. Because of how large and complex these securities are, our client own's some of the largest databases, run the highest hit services that return billions of points of data, and maintain the best libraries of cash flow models.
