Technology & IT

Our Client

  • British-based stock exchange and financial information company, a dynamic organization of 25,000 people across 70 countries


  • The Software Engineering and Automation team, part of the Design and Engineering function is tasked with the development of software solutions for the automatic instantiation of network connectivity and network services such as DNS, IPAM, load balancers, and firewalls. The software produced by the team is used to translate user requirements for network services into actions which are taken on network infrastructure to fulfil the user request. This can take various forms, from the allocation of a new DNS record to a complex configuration for a network connectivity service applied to one or more network devices. Development is primarily in the form of software applications using the ‘micro-service’ architecture style, and various other software artefacts such as infrastructure-as-code and CI/CD pipeline code
  • The primary development activities supported by the team are:
  • The development of front-end business-facing applications providing a front-door in the form of APIs and Web UIs for our user community to request network services
  • Development of ‘mid-tier’ integration-layer applications which integrate north-bound with the business front-end app(s), and south-bound with the network service layer. The mid-tier automates all logic, workflow, and life-cycle maintenance of attributes required to manage a global network of devices and services
  • Development of abstract models and code describing network connectivity services and their various components such as routing instances, interfaces, and vlans
