SunGard Adaptiv provides enterprise-wide credit and market risk management solutions for financial services institutions. Adaptiv assists institutions of varying size and complexity to deploy technology to meet both internal and regulatory requirements for risk management and operational control. Adaptiv helps financial services institutions from the banking, hedge fund, asset management, insurance and corporate sectors with our deep understanding of risk management and operational processes.

The Summer Internship Programme is an 11 week programme for undergraduate, masters and PhD students.

We are seeking candidates ideally completing a degree in a numerate discipline such as Computer Science, Physics or Mathematics and targeting a 2:1 grade. Candidates should have a strong interest in both technology and finance.

The 2013 Summer Internship will consist of projects to support the Development team’s work developing Adaptiv products and components. You will be a full team member given responsibility for projects and decisions and will constantly learn from the expertise of those around you.

The skills that we expect successful candidates to develop during the internship can be categorized into the following three areas:

Technical Skills:
Successful candidates will develop technical skills in software engineering though exposure to development tools such as Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsoft SQL Server. Their skills in object oriented programming will be developed through use of these tools. They will also learn how applications are deployed in a multi-server environment.

The project will give successful candidates the experience of working within a development team in an international commercial environment. They will also learn how the software development life cycle operates from specification through development to testing and deployment.

Financial Knowledge:
The project will also give the successful candidates the opportunity to enhance their financial knowledge. They can expect to learn more about how banks manage their risk using the Adaptiv suite of risk software, how Adaptiv calculates the risk on the banks’ trades and how derivative trades are valued.
