    Description of Work

    Software engineering support for EDC Treasury’s Cincom VisualWorks development platform and Universal Finance Server (UFS) application. The Treasury Group and Corporate Banking, along with other financial departments at EDC rely heavily on UFS, a legacy system which has been in use for over two decades. It has been customized extensively and is used to record, manage, control, and facilitate execution of specific financial transactions. This allows the enterprise to monitor and maintain critical liquidity ratios and manage interest and foreign exchange risk and requires access to relevant market data. UFS requires constant IT maintenance.

    • Design, develop, deploy, and maintain applications written in Cincom SmallTalk.
    • Resolve technical issues with the Cincom VisualWorks software development platform and UFS related applications.
    • Identify and/or implement improvements and extensions to core UFS frameworks and the core VisualWorks code base.
    • Work closely with different business teams (including banking, treasury, risk management) to assess current work processes and propose, review, develop and deliver UFS application solutions to support various business team requests.
    • Understand corporate cyber security issues and respond with application or software platform changes where required.
