Ubix bespoke development Conversion Lead
FIS Cleared Derivatives is a brand new, single technology, multi-asset, Post Trade Processing platform. In a first planned step, this new platform will be used to replace PTD existing solutions (GMI, Clearvision, Ubix and other related products).
To ensure a successful adoption of this new solution, a significant effort has been made to work on modeling the conversion of the PTD Customer base (100+ customers) from their legacy PTD solutions to FCD using a structured, controlled, tool and methodology based, scalable approach.
One of the results of this conversion preparation is the requirement to have a dedicated workstream linked to the bespoke development around the legacy solutions.
The flexibility of the Ubix solution allowed indeed for multiple customizations: inbound, outbound interfaces, additional functional behavior…
A senior and experienced Ubix Bespoke Development Lead is now required to define and contribute to the Conversion Program in the following aspects:
- Create a functional and technical map of the bespoke development among the FIS Ubix customer base
- Identify opportunities to rationalize and optimize the bespoke development (new product features, standardize interfaces…) in collaboration with the Product management team.

- Define solution and processes to migrate the functionality : to create a roadmap for the tools and methodology definition (incl. workload and budget) to facilitate the migration of the bespoke development to FCD.
