Morgan Stanley's Glasgow office is home to nearly 300 technologists, developing applications across sales and trading, wealth management, information security, risk and regulatory systems and more. Projects in Glasgow are very diverse and cover a wide range of technologies including Java, C#, HTML5, C++, Python, KDB/Q, and Scala to name just a few, and typically involve building large distributed systems with a global user base beyond the 1,200 employees in the Glasgow office. Come along and hear a number of developers talk about what they do at Morgan Stanley and give you an insight into what it is like to work at a global financial services company.
We will also give a brief overview of the Morgan Stanley graduate training programme and the application process.
The event will be informal and questions will be encouraged. If you would like to come along, please email us at email@example.com with a message title of 'Meet the Developer'.
Looking forward to seeing you there
