Job Description

Group Operations Solutions Delivery provides project delivery capability into Group Operations, through identification and definition of our target state and delivery towards that target by changing platforms and processes.


The FIS Derivatives Utility (FDU) migration program is an ongoing strategic change program for our Prime business to move post-trade futures and cleared over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives operations and technology to a utility provider. This CS strategy is intended to take advantage of economies of scale within middle-office and back-office processing and technology.


As part of this transformation, Credit Suisse is reengineering a number of processes to make optimal use of the utility service provisions. The processes need to maintain a high level of oversight and control as expected by our regulators, internal risk and compliance groups.


We are seeking a candidate to join our team and contribute towards delivering this transformation by being able to undertake the following activities:

  • Act as workstream project manager for solution delivery to ensure successful delivery of application migration, replacement or decommissioning projects.
  • Provide hands-on management and delivery oversight for vendor solution delivery activities.
  • Ensure business requirements are clearly identified, prioritized and satisfied by appropriate technical and/or business process solutions.
  • Lead test execution and status reporting activities to ensure functional quality assurance through User Acceptance Testing (UAT).
  • Clearly articulate the progress being made towards delivery objectives. Where we have gaps or open issues, be able to provide the transparency to our stakeholders on the obstacles preventing progress.
  • Work with a global team. Partner with our revenue generating, operations and technology departments to produce creative solutions to challenging problems.
  • Provide support to key stakeholders with a dedication to deliver technology services that are functional, resilient and stable.


The role provides an opportunity to shape our thinking and solutions as we transform our clearing operational process. The ambition is to bring groundbreaking ideas and solutions to our stakeholders for discussion and selection.

 


Credit Suisse maintains a Working Flexibility Policy, subject to the terms as set forth in the Credit Suisse United States Employment Handbook.
