About Steve Lamb

📖 Summary

I've been working in IT for over 20 years. I started as a trainee programmer at Abbey Life Assurance in Bournemouth in the summer of 1988. I moved to Bournemouth where I attended their in-house training course learning Cobol II running on an MVS/XA mainframe. After approximately 9 months, I left the course and moved back to Essex where I found myself a job as a "computer programmer" writing Cobol programs at Alcatel Business Systems in Romford. At Alcatel, I progressed through the ranks of Analyst Programmer and finally Project Leader, where I managed a team of 4 people. I remained at Alcatel until November 1993 when I then joined Neopost Limited. At Neopost I continued my role as a Project Leader which was to become my final "permanent" position as I left in October 1996 to turn my attention to my new venture, Slamsoft Computing Limited. After 2 relatively short contracts at Honda UK and Royal London Mutual Insurance, I have been involved in the Investment Banking sector ever since, having worked for:- * ABN Amro (key skills used:- AS400, Cobol) * West LB (key skills used:- AS400, Cobol, Sybase, Visual Basic, Perl, Unix) * Credit Suisse (key skills used:- Visual Basic, Sybase, Perl, Unix) * Lehman Brothers (key skills used:- Java, JSP, Javascript, Visual Basic, Sybase, Unix, Linux, Perl) * Lehman Brothers in Administration (key skills used:- Java, JSP, Javascript, Hibernate, Spring, Sybase ASE, Sybase IQ, Microsoft ASP.Net, Microsoft C#, Microsoft SQL Server). * JP Morgan Chase (key skills used:- Java, Oracle, JSP, Javascript, Unix scripting, SQL, .Net) * Barclays Capital (key skills used:- Java, Oracle, Spring, Linux scripting) Specialties: Although I have worked for several years working as a project leader managing a team of developers, I am happiest meeting users, gathering information and turning their requirements into software that is used to meet the purpose it was intended for.Senior Developer @ Currently working in the Credit Risk Operations IT (CRO-IT) department working on a number on a Java based projects. More to follow... From February 2014 to Present (1 year 10 months) London, United KingdomManaging Director @ Following eight years in the IT industry, I founded Slamsoft Computing Limited in October 1996. The decision to 'go contracting' was based on several reasons:- An opportunity to broaden my IT experience, working with different people, using different technology. Take control - a chance to work independantly, and look after my own business affairs. The potential for better earning, and more control over where and how the company's income is managed. Slamsoft Computing has now been operational for around 12 years. Although the company was formed during the 'boom' time experienced by the IT sector in the mid-nineties, it has since had to endure more leaner times since the turn of the century. Despite this, the company is still progressing well, with regular investment being put towards training and technology. From October 1996 to Present (19 years 2 months) Senior Developer @ My current position is as a Senior IT Consult working for Barclays Bank. Here, I am working on a green-field development project which will be responsible for calculating the collateral, cash and risk exposure for the bank. The existing system at Barclays is made up of many fragmented systems which do not link together very well. The new system will receive cashflow feeds from around the bank and perform calculations pertaining to current and projected collateral, cash and risk values. The server side of the process will be written in Java handling Solace and MQ Series message queues. A number of Spring-based technologies are used within the system such as Spring Integration, Spring Batch and Spring Data (JPA). The team responsible for the new project is made up of approximately 10 developers/technical leads plus a further 6 business analysts. The initial phase of the project is due for implementation later in 2013. From July 2012 to January 2014 (1 year 7 months) London, United KingdomSenior IT Consultant @ Involved in the full development life cycle i.e. analysis, design, development, implementation, testing, deployment and support of all Fixed Income lines of eTrading business. Utilising JSP, UNIX scripting, Java, SQL, UNIX, Eclipse RCP and .NET. From May 2011 to June 2012 (1 year 2 months) Senior IT Consultant @ This was a development and analysis role in the IT area producing key software solutions to aid the wind-down of Lehman Brothers bank. During my two-and-a-half year contract, I worked on several projects which are summarised below:- ART (Asset Realisation Tool) provides a single counterparty view of a Client’s position so that a complete and accurate Counterparty Statement can be generated. ART supports the capture of inventory, legal agreements and shows the relationships between trades, agreements and clients. Prior to the ART project, I completed the analysis and development on a project involving the migration of a legacy mainframe system onto a .Net Windows forms-based application. This was a high-priority Greenfield project called SHARK (Securities Holding Analysis and Record Keeping). SHARK maintains Stock Records and a Trial Balance which reflects the relationship between depots/nostros and the underlying client/affiliate positions/balances. The application supports Trade booking, Trade journals, settlement recording with journals, Journal entry and posting, reconciliation processing and static data updates. The project had an aggressive deadline of September 2010 and was completed on schedule and on budget. Before the SHARK project, I was enlisted by the PriceWaterhouseCoopers Forensics team to help with the development of their Trust Property Tool (TPT) and specifically the Daily Asset Reporting Tool (DART) web-based applications. DART provides a front end reporting layer for information that is stored in the ITS/SHARK systems to provide an easier user interface to view a stock’s position from books and records and from the external world depots. DART essentially sits on top of SHARK and provides the business logic to run various administration tasks. From December 2008 to May 2011 (2 years 6 months) Senior Analyst & Developer (IT Consultant) @ This was primarily a development role in the London P&L team within Finance Technology. The team was responsible for the firms P&L reporting and control systems. The systems provided the business with the ability to report P&L across FID, Equities and Investment Banking from individual trades up to a consolidated divisional level. During my time at Lehman Brothers, I was involved in 4 key CAD2 development projects. CAD2 was initiated to reduce the amount of regulatory capital that is being held by the firm. This involves moving away from the existing method of calculating regulatory capital using "standard rules" and replacing it with a VaR (Value at Risk) based methodology. From November 2005 to September 2008 (2 years 11 months) Senior Analyst & Developer (IT Consultant) @ I was originally appointed as a developer to work on a new regulatory Profit & Loss reporting system required by the Bank of England. As a member of an 8 man team in the Controllers IT department, the deadlines were extremely tight, and the significance to create good, reliable and easy to maintain code was high. The project was completed on time and on budget. I developed and maintained a Trade Reconciliation P & L application which required strong Visual Basic skills and a close working relationship with the users. The key development skills that I used were Sybase, Transact SQL (TSQL), Unix (Kornshell & C-Shell), Visual Basic 6, Perl, Business Objects, Microsoft SQL Server, Remedy and Rational Clearcase (Source Control). From September 2003 to November 2005 (2 years 3 months) Senior Analyst & Developer (IT Consultant) @ I was a member of a 20 strong Global Back Office Development and Support department which provides 24 hour cover to the Back Office activities within the bank. The department is responsible for ensuring the continuity of a number of business critical systems, which therefore meant that it was necessary to locate bugs and solve problems in code as quickly and as efficiently as possible. In addition to the support role provided, I also worked on a number of key development projects. From February 1999 to July 2003 (4 years 6 months) Senior Analyst & Developer (IT Consultant) @ I was a member of the IT Development and Support team consisting of approximately 15 other IT staff. Originally I was hired to help with the migration of ABN Amro’s back office system from a mainframe based environment to an in-house written application running on an AS400 platform. From October 1997 to February 1999 (1 year 5 months) Senior Analyst & Developer (IT Consultant) @ I was a member of the IT Development and Support team consisting of approximately 40 other IT developers responsible for both the support and development of a number of key IT projects. The main project I was involved in was the Pensions Reparation System. This involved writing a number of CICS online programs allowing entry of customers who were considered inside the scope of further Pension investigations. Batch programs written in COBOL were also required to provide management reporting. I also helped maintain a Visual Basic application to provide the users with the ability to automatically generate customer letters. From January 1997 to October 1997 (10 months) Senior Analyst & Developer (IT Consultant) @ I was a member of a 20 strong IT Development team responsible for providing IT support to Honda’s nation-wide dealership. I was involved in two key projects:- Chartered Trust Overnight Batch This was my main project which involved investigating and fixing a number of known bugs, and making various enhancements. General Ledger Migration Following the migration of Honda’s General Ledger system to a SAP based platform, historical data had to be stored on an alternative medium. This required the uploading of data into an Access database with a Visual Basic front-end. From October 1996 to January 1997 (4 months) Developer / Analyst Programmer / Project Leader @ I worked at Neopost Limited (originally part of Alcatel Business Systems) for about 7 years. During this time, I evolved from trainee programmer to eventually taking on the role of Project Leader. Although a small IT department, never consisting of more than about 14 personnel, this provided ample opportunities to become involved in projects from conception through to completion. From November 1993 to October 1996 (3 years) Developer / Analyst Programmer / Project Leader @ I worked at Alcatel Business Systems (and the spin-off company, Neopost Limited) for about 7 years. During this time, I evolved from trainee programmer to eventually taking on the role of Project Leader. Although a small IT department, never consisting of more than about 14 personnel, this provided ample opportunities to become involved in projects from conception through to completion. From March 1989 to November 1993 (4 years 9 months) Computer Science @ Thurrock Technical College From 1989 to 1990 Coopers Company and Coborn School From 1978 to 1983 Steve Lamb is skilled in: Investment Banking, Fixed Income, Trading Systems, Sybase, Unix, Market Data, Derivatives, Microsoft SQL Server, Unix Shell Scripting, Autosys, Linux, Visual Basic, Perl, Java, Spring
