Nikolai Larbalestier

Cloud Strategy | Platform | Enterprise Architecture | Nasdaq

Greater Chicago Area

20 years experience in designing, developing and supporting software systems for the Financial Sector. Broad range of responsibilities, including high performance, low latency system architecture, requirement gathering, software development, testing, client support, due diligence reviews on prospective acquisition targets, team management, and process review.

My experience has taken me from trading floors to the boardroom, from pre-sales to implementation, and from requirements gathering to training 3rd-party developers. This exposure gives me a unique ability to bridge the gap between technology and the business.

I excel in responding to the challenges in developing practical solutions to both technical and business requirements. I enjoy using my technical knowledge to suggest or improve business requirements, as well as applying new business knowledge to system design and development.

I am a self-driven learner, and believe that the best way to solve a problem involves an in-depth understanding, from both a business and technical perspective, and then exploring alternative solutions.

I offer a strategic approach that takes the long term view while meeting short term milestones.

- Specialization in low latency, high performance software for trading

- Practical application of new trends

- Experience in developing solutions from pre-trade through settlement

- Experience with a wide range of proprietary and standards based interfaces

- Pro-active in considering and applying new concepts

- High level view, low level understanding
