  • 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.
  • This programme 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 technologies (Java, C#, C++, SQL, Python, Perl, JavaScript, HTML/CSS and others) and frameworks (Spring, Maven, Camel, WPF, Node, React, and many others). Depending on your role, you’ll gain an understanding of different financial products, and build a valuable knowledge of risk management techniques and live trade analysis.

There is a wide breadth of roles available in technology. Your role will fit into one of the below:

  • Business Analysis – To help bridge the gap between the worlds of Technology and the business, Business Analysts are the intermediary through which each side can communicate effectively. Each modification we make to our in-house software requires complete understanding and agreement from both sides as to how things are to be changed, and as a Business Analyst you will facilitate this. You’ll be meeting regularly with business representatives to understand the problems that are currently occurring, and will be translating these problems into concrete requirements for the Development and Support teams. Analytical skills are a must for this role, as well as the ability to express an idea in more than one domain language.
  • Software Development – Bespoke software is at the heart of everything we do, and as a software developer you will help build out our ecosystem to help our clients and traders create and maintain a competitive advantage over other banks and organisations on the street. We write a large proportion of our software in-house and you could be involved with anything from generating real-time risk measures for our traders, to ensuring that payments to other companies are correctly collated, calculated and executed. As a software developer at Nomura, you will be designing, implementing and deploying solutions to meet rapidly changing business and regulatory needs. Strong coding skills and a logical outlook are a must.
  • Technical Support – To support the many systems that are written in house, our technical support teams are the first line of communication between our business users and Technology. As a member of one of our dedicated teams you’ll be doing anything from diagnosing and remediating issues in complex system flows to investigating previously unknown issues, all while in contact with traders or other business staff in a fast-paced environment. Excellent communication and technology knowledge are required to get the ‘big picture’ and disseminate information to find a solution to issues.
  • Bear in mind, that not all jobs fit into one of these categories, and can sometimes span two or all three!

Your role will be in the context of one of our IT divisions:

  • CTS – Corporate Technology Services (CTS) is responsible for delivering and supporting business applications to Finance; Compliance; Legal; Human Resources; Real Estate and various other Corporate divisions across the Nomura Group. CTS plays an essential role in servicing the Firm’s business needs and future direction by provisioning innovative, cost-efficient technology solutions to help underpin our competitiveness; revenue-generation and regulatory compliance. 
  • This is achieved by defining and overseeing strategic direction and technical architecture of Corporate Technology Services across Wholesale and wider Group companies; ensuring quality, delivery timeliness and progress transparency against milestones and objectives. Team collaboration is also involved, sharing successes and failures, ensuring we consistently and continually learn. 
  • CTS creates an environment and culture to attract the smartest and most determined people, helping them succeed in their roles and careers. Acting as true partners with the Business and wider Corporate world, they provide technical expertise, ideas, opinions and problem-solving abilities. CTS also sponsors and supports Firm-wide IT Transformation, transitioning to cloud, automated toolchain and testing processes. 
  • GIS – Global Infrastructure Services team is responsible for designing, developing and maintaining Nomura's core group-wide infrastructure platforms which are divided into three main functional areas: Digital Workspace; Cloud; and Traditional Services. These functions are underpinned by Engineering, Programme Management, Governance and Business Management functions.
  • The GIS team continually drive forward the organisation through the delivery of leading edge technology platforms and business solutions. The current GIS project portfolio spans cloud and workspace initiatives alongside infrastructure optimisation programmes and provides support for business initiatives.
  • Through the knowledge, expertise and teamwork of our people, we create significant technological and competitive advantage for Nomura. Our strategy is to provide a first class and cost efficient Service Delivery centering on Efficiency, Platform Standardisation, Consolidation and a Globalised Operating Model.
  • GMIT – Global Markets Technology develops and maintains software solutions for the Global Markets division. Our products are used around the globe and include trading, pricing, risk management, analytics, research and sales systems.
  • Risk IT – Risk IT supports the Risk Management division by developing and maintaining software solutions that calculate market and credit risk exposures and provide group-wide risk management capabilities in line with the firms’ risk appetite and regulatory requirements.
  • WPS – Wholesale Production Services provides business aligned 1st/2nd line IT Support and has global responsibility for the overall stability of the systems supporting the global wholesale businesses and the supporting functions (e.g. Front Office, Operations, Risk, Finance, Compliance). Wholesale Production Services is responsible and accountable for monitoring the environment to proactively identify issues, incident management, release management, disaster recovery, capacity management and application support.
