About the project" 11-strong Luxoft Kyiv based team operates as an extension of the client's Risk IT program and is involved in the development of different components of client's risk platform. The Market Risk IT team is a part of Risk IT and is responsible for designing, integrating and supporting Middle Office Market Risk system in the organization using the third party Markit Financial Risk Analytics (FRA) simulation and pricing engine that provides cross-asset coverage to calculate market risk measures.

The successful candidate will join the Market Risk IT team enhancing this system to meet the requirements of the FRTB IMA project. This is a significant regulatory project with many technical challenges. The existing application is being decoupled into a new 'MRA Service Framework' which will encompass a number of Micro Services. This approach has been chosen to enable the Market Risk system to move to the Cloud and to facilitate segregation of functionality so that services can be developed, tested and released independently. New FRTB IMA functionality will be implemented as Micro Services in the new framework.
