Technology at Nomura involves working with, and designing, state-of-the-art information technology and risk management systems. These are the systems that can often give us that crucial, split-second edge over our competitors. Work ranges from infrastructure support and deployment to in-house development of complex modelling software and applications.
Our Technology program includes a 12 month industrial placements. As part of the program, you will be trained, placed in a business and encouraged to develop your skills. You will contribute as a full and valued member of the team, assuming responsibilities similar to those of a first-year Analyst.
These programs will give you the opportunity to develop new applications that keep us at the forefront of technology. You’ll develop an impressive level of technical knowledge, using a range of packages (VB, SQL, Perl, C++, Java, XML, XSLT, JSP). As well as this, you’ll gain an understanding of different financial products, and build a valuable knowledge of risk management techniques and live trade analysis.
During your internship, you can expect to gain an understanding of the different products (equities, bonds, futures, options, swaps, exotic derivatives, quant and the like). You will also build your knowledge of risk management methods and techniques (variance-covariance, historical simulation, stress testing, maximum potential exposure) and live trade analysis. From day one, you will work as a full member of the team on projects that have a real effect on our business. You will focus on maintaining exceptional corporate support to our global business and take on extra responsibilities as you progress through the program.
We will also supplement on-the-job experience with a comprehensive training curriculum designed to provide you with professional skills, industry knowledge and development opportunities. This training includes management-led overviews and presentations by internal and external experts on relevant financial products and market topics.
