Job Description :
FactSet Instant Messenger (FIM) is an open collaboration platform purpose-built to enhance the workflow needs of global financial professionals. Go beyond traditional messaging on a single network to access research, share ideas, and find partners among contacts on a variety of networks. The platform is fully integrated within the FactSet Workstation, letting you easily share news, charts, and other components. The platform’s unique “blast” functionality lets you simultaneously send messages to multiple recipients, allowing you to communicate time-sensitive information to a number of contacts. The FIM client connects not only to the FactSet Network, but also to consumer networks like AOL and Google Talk.
The system consists of two main components with the frontend, a native .NET WPF application, and a set of java-based backend servers that implement the XMPP and HTTP RESTful APIs used by the client application. Our HTTP services are extremely lean, built as standalone Jetty processes, without any application server or extra framework. The client and server components depend heavily on integrations with other FactSet systems to support our feature rich platform.
