I joined Ullink in Paris in 2008 as a Direct Market Access integration developer (Java). Newbie to the finance industry, I seized this opportunity to build strong financial markets knowledge while working on technically exciting areas such as Low Latency and Java JNI integration. Working in a motivated and skilled team, I learned a lot from its senior members and enjoyed the dynamic and intense, yet friendly environment. I recently worked on an extension framework for one of our core servers that uses state-of-the-art Java technology. This was another great opportunity to grow. Working in a development environment using the SCRUM methodology and focusing on continuous integration was a great experience. After 3 years in Paris, I moved to our US office. Here I work more closely with the client facing team. I finally became a “commando” for new client implementations, making full use of the knowledge I gathered during my Parisian years.
I have been working for Ullink for almost 12 years now. From the moment I started in the company I knew it was going to be exciting and full of new challenges. I first joined the product Team as a QA manager. This experience allowed me to learn a lot about the technical and the business side of the company. After this I became the “Scrum Master” of the team which helped me gain organization and management skills. Then I was given the opportunity to join the Business Analysis Team. All these opportunities gave me the chance to work with great team-mates; very knowledgeable, relaxed and professional at the same time. All these factors give us the drive to motivate and inspire each other. That’s what I call the “Ullink spirit” – fun and professional at the same time!
I started working for Ullink over eight years ago as a Global Monitoring Analyst and within three years, was given the opportunity to become a shift superviser. As an Analyst, I learned a lot about how to monitor the application environment, including our network and system infrastructure. In 2012, I was promoted to Production Engineer (Level 2) where I was working with the Marketplace Environment and other applications that the company is supporting. As of 2016, I train people from Manila, Hong Kong, Paris, Cluj and New York how to support Ullink’s NYFIX FIX Marketplace. My experience here at Ullink continues to be a challenging, wonderful and priceless journey. I am continuously inspired by the many role models and great leaders at Ullink.
Some may say that working with people is not an easy job; not in Ullink, where every day I am surrounded by great, friendly people! I’m the Scrum Master within the UL Trader team and have been for more than two years. I deal on a daily basis with many people from different teams, offices, and countries. The financial trading software industry is very demanding and to survive in this market you need to focus on improving product performance, and delivering new cutting-edge features and solutions. However, all these combined with a great working atmosphere, somehow gets you addicted!
I joined Ullink in 2011 as a QA Engineer (in the Cluj office in Romania) as part of the Integration team. There I was able to learn and gain an in-depth understanding about Ullink’s global products. Then I moved on to the Implementation team, which allowed me to get to know our products even better. Thanks to Ullink’s global mobility program, I was offered the opportunity to move to New York as a Technical Account Manager. I took the challenge and here I am, after almost two years in the city that never sleeps, in an industry that continuous to grow at a fast pace. I really enjoy working at Ullink and being part of a dynamic and skilful team. I like new challenges and am not afraid to embrace change.
I joined Ullink in 2009 as a quality engineer in the UL TRADER team. I enjoyed working for that team because it was young and with a good spirit. One year later I heard that a team was moving to Hong Kong and, thanks to our internal mobility process, I entered a request to see if there was position open for me over there. After few days the request was validated and I moved to the UL DASHBOARD team. I went to Hong Kong as an expat for 2 years and now I am still working there in a local contract. The change was good for me as it made me use more technology and increased my benchmarking and automated testing skills. I like the fact that Ullink is using Agile methodologies as the product and internal processes can be driven by everyone if your idea is good. It also makes the development more flexible to changes and the team more reactive to client needs.
