Assistant Vice President - Team Lead and Line Manager Deputy/Senior Application
Credit Suisse, Zurich
8/2011 – 10/2014 (3 Jahre, 3 Monate)

8/2011 – 10/2014


Assistant Vice President - Team Lead and Line Manager Deputy/Senior Application Architect at Credit Suisse Zürich, Switzerland for a team of 12 people in the Cross Asset Structured Products Enterprise Reengineering (CASPER) project, which represents the Murex MX.3 platform implementation for the Credit Suisse OTC business.

Team lead and Line Manager Deputy tasks:
◦ Defined deliverables and planned team activity according to the release timeline. Ensured that the process and defined steps are followed and that the deadlines can be reached. Contingency plan definition when the situation required it.
◦ Weekly reporting for the management committee, including deliverables tracking, general status. Leaded regular defect planning meetings, first and second level support meetings. Organized conference calls with external providers in order to discuss open issues.
◦ Regular meetings with the project architect in order to define the target architecture and the implementation guidelines for the entire Build team in accordance to the architectural best practices
◦ Organized daily standup meetings according to the lean project setup
◦ Coached team members on the technologies used: Murex application architecture, module and service usage, general application design and implementation best practices, Enterprise Integration Patterns, build tools, etc.
◦ Organized bi-weekly Build Sessions that offered the possibility of the team members to present various aspects of the application or of their work to their colleagues, in order to facilitate understanding, to offer a broader view over the application landscape and to facilitate knowledge transfer
◦ Organized recruitment interviews and recruited 5 new members for the on site build team and 4 members for the offshore team, designed and validated written tests for the candidates
◦ Participated to the offshoring effort by defining the areas that can be handled outside Switzerland, according to the compliance policies that have to be respected regarding client sensitive data
◦ Managed and contributed to the team wiki, encouraged content publication in order to facilitate handover and knowledge sharing
◦ Acted as Product Owner for the RECON inter-system Reconcilliation Engine

Project contributions:
◦ Leaded a group of 4 developers in implementing a new Java/SQL/FreeMarker/Oracle based application called MxTib (Murex – Trade Information Bus), application that interfaced the Murex platform with downstream Credit Suisse systems via IBM Websphere MQ. This task involved planning, assigning work items and tracking the development process in all its phases: design, implementation, test, support. The application extracted the entire trade population from Datamart to a proprietary XML format and then published it to various risk management and reporting systems. Products implemented:
▪ Equity derivatives:
• Asset Swaps
• Variance Swaps
▪ Interest rate derivatives:
• Cap/Floor
• Forward rate agreements
• Swaps
◦ Basis swaps
◦ Compounded interest
◦ Extendable swaps
◦ Range swaps
◦ With Break Clause
◦ Vanilla swaps
• Overnight indexed swaps
• Interest rate swaptions
▪ FX and Precious Metals options
• Barriers
• Knock In/Knock Out
• European/American/Asian
Rigorous constraints were imposed due to high data volume as regarding the execution time that has to be guaranteed during Intra Day, End of Day and End of Month processing.
◦ At the head of a 2-developer sub team, I have led the redesign of the Accounting interface. The task required careful attention to be given to design issues due to the long history the module had, the huge codebase and fragmentation. After the target design was defined, I have coached the team members on the new technology we adopted – Apache Camel – an industry standard for Enterprise Integration Patterns solutions. The development was once again made following the plan, with daily tracking in an Agile manner.
◦ Enhanced dependency management and the application delivery process in the project by introducing industry standard solutions for building, deploying and testing applications based on Apache Maven.
◦ Designed and supervised the implementation of the Trade Valuation Import interface from TACS (Credit Suisse internal application), based on Apache Camel.
◦ Developed, redesigned and optimized for speed and for easier maintainability the Financial Reports, implemented using SQL based Datamart extractions.
