Digital Technologist. Thought Leader. Passionate Software Architect. Agile Delivery Coach/Manager. Certified Cassandra Architect. Python Financial Modeling Professional
I have a passion for building presentations. I would love to make a Hollywood movie one day. For now I build technical presentations including working demos and prototypes and proof of concept for various use cases in Finance using new and emergiing technologies.
Part of my job is to build very high performance on-shore/off-shore teams that produce excellent results. I am adept at using modern digital tools for online developer collaborationa and am able to coach and mentor team members to be extremely productive very quickly.
My breadth in technology combined with domain knowledge helps me do a comprehensive assessment of existing platforms and applications to come up with solid architecture recommendations and technology roadmap for future.
Nothing excites me more than innovative new ideas that could generate revenues of billions or trillions of dollars. So many of my future predictions regarding technology products and services have proven right that if I had money to invest in them I would have made a ton of profits.
Creating highly scalable, end to end platform/product for a business purpose in multi-function teams is my specialty. I built the pioneer stock trading platform for National Discount Brokers which was rated number one in technology for three consecutive years by several authorities online including Gomez Advisors.
However, I like making friends and connections for meaningful conversations/meetings. So do drop me a line with a brief description of yourself and the nature of your request, and I will get back to you.Contact me
My education and experience.
Post Graduate degree program following a Masters in Technology Management covering courses in Technology Strategy, Corporate Strategy, Finance, Six Sigma, Innovation Management and a comprehensive Business Simulation - Capstone.
Five year degree program in business along with a set of core courses in Computer Science - Operating Systems, Databases, Data Structures & Algorithms, Computer Networks.
My most recent project was in Prime Brokerage group building a high performance Reference Data platform using Web Services and TIBCO EMS messaging to acquire, store, and distribute key reference data for all asset classes including Options and Derivatives. Key components of the platform include:
Previously in the Broker Dealer technology group I was given the responsibility of bringing all account, entitlement, and positions data to the front end applications to enable same-day trading for CISC analysts. Additionally, I managed various Trading related projects including portfolio rebalancing, managed accounts, bulk order trading, and several significant enhancements to the proprietary Order Management System – COSMOS.
In a previous role, I led the design and development of a data container library in C++ with a Python layer that powers many quantitative finance applications across the entire Investment Bank as the glue for integrating disparate applications and run on Grid platform in JPMC.
Prior to that, I led several major projects including an application to propagate mainframe data including entitlements, accounts, positions, and instruments via JMS to front end Databases for use by over 200 applications in the Broker Dealer group. My responsibility as technical leader was to work with the Product Development to clearly define the requirements, layout the architecture and design for the systems in compliance with the firm’s architecture direction, work with development teams to build the systems, coordinate with QA and Release management teams for successful implementation of the systems into production and train the operations group in providing first level support while maintaining third level support schedules for my team.
Prior to that, I was involved in several enterprise-wide software development initiatives including a web based application for Prime Brokerage, built using TIBCO GI and J2EE, a robust messaging architecture with TIBCO EMS, TIBCO RV and IBM MQ for services and Gemfire distributed cache, a set of cross language and cross platform libraries for common data representation, and a set of common C# assemblies for use in software applications across the Enterprise. Major user groups are in Equities, Equity Derivatives, and Fixed Income. All projects involved multiple languages (C#, C++ and Java) and multiple platforms (Linux, Windows)
