SmartStream Technologies – Why Work With Us?


SmartStream is a global software and managed services provider that in challenging markets conditions has outpaced its rivals in the financial markets sector, creating an impressive base of more than 1,500 customers. This includes more than 70 of the world’s top 100 banks alongside the world’s leading asset managers, custodians and broker dealers.

At the heart of this success is the ability to react to client, market and regulatory changes through innovative solutions. That is why, even in challenging market conditions, the company continues to invest more than 20% of revenue back into research and development.

The combination of SmartStream’s post-trade processing solutions, together with its unique Data Management Services, creates a real-time and pre-emptive approach to reducing trade failures while also accelerating and automating trade processes.


Company Vision

The recent financial crisis has highlighted financial institutions’ underinvestment in the middle and back-office. This has resulted in ineffective operational controls, inflexible systems and the inability to respond to the economic downturn.

These inefficiencies have been magnified by increasing transaction complexity and fluctuating volumes; costing market participants around US$18 billion per annum. SmartStream addresses the challenges faced by financial institutions through solutions that cover the entire post-trade lifecycle enabling more efficient, streamlined and cost-effective middle and back office operations.

The adoption of SmartStream’s solutions enables firms to realise market leading match rates in excess of 95%, compared to the industry average of approximately 84%. Furthermore, SmartStream is the only vendor with the ability to link reference data management to reconciliations to deliver enhanced cross-instrument processing across the enterprise.

As a result, our solutions are critical to the retooling of post-trade environments demanded by new regulations – whether it is liquidity transparency, visibility into OTC derivatives positions, removing operational risk or moving operations to true intra-day transaction processing.

SmartStream’s approach to creating, delivering and supporting a range of industry leading solutions delivers significant value to firms, ensuring a rapid ROI and lowering their TCO. This enabled us to outperform our competition during the financial crisis, sustaining our market leadership whilst securing flagship customers for new products and services.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SmartStream Technologies (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interview process took ages around 3 months. I was first contacted by a recruiter from an external company who was very cooperative and tried to get answers from the hiring manager for months who take easily 2-3 weeks to delay meetings continuously. After being said that all my interviews went well I received a rejection letter from their HR. Overall painfull and annoying experience and I am glad that I wasn't selected after all.
