Technology Team

Technology sits at the centre of our business

The Technology team plays a fundamental role in all aspects of the company’s lifecycle, from ensuring a trade order hits the market to making sure an email is sent and received. We work closely with the key stakeholders, to make sure technology support and service is tailored to their needs.

We’re proud of our track record of innovation, as well as support.  We have several bespoke developments in production at any given time, at the same time as handling the daily demands of a large and growing infrastructure like ours.

Being a global, 24-7 business like ours, we have to make sure that the network and systems are always available, stable and secure.  So we have a multinational team, with key teams in Poland and the UK, as well as people in our offices around the world.  In all, we have a number of divisions: service desk, systems and servers, networks, software development, and production support.  Each plays a vital role in supporting the business.

I started working at OSTC days after my final University exam, back then the office was a quarter of the size and the development team made up of just two people. It has been great to see the company grow and succeed over the years.

My first main project with OSTC was to create a trading simulation platform for Universities, which is used to give students an insight into Trading. In recent years, my main focus has been on the company’s internal system, where we provide tools for Traders, Operations, Risk Managers, Finance and HR. These tools have become essential to the day to day running of the company, it’s always great to see the system you created being used.

For me, this is an excellent place to work. I’ve got to work on some great projects and it’s great to be working in a business where technology has to keep moving.
