About Analytics Integration Team and Torus Project

The Analytics Integration team is responsible for building and maintaining the application layer/framework that enables risk generation systems to use the quantitative analytics (QA) library which is used for pricing and risk calculations for financial derivative trades. The new version of this library called QA Omega is based on graph execution and requires the Analytics Integration team to build-out a new framework which is called Torus. Torus will provide features such as plug-ins for reading from various in-house data sources, caching logic to store frequently used data in an in-memory caching layer such as GridGain, a distribution mechanism to enable execution of the quantitative analytics calculations in parallel on an in-house computing grid of thousands of CPUs and GPUs and eventually also public cloud services. The core of Torus will be implemented in C++, but it should provide bindings in various languages, mainly C#, Java and Python. Torus is intended to run on Windows and Linux. The team is currently based in New York and London and they are planning to establish significant presence in Prague. This is a great opportunity to be at the start of something new.
