Rick Parker

Rick developed and sold his first commercial software with friends whilst still at school in the 1980s before going on to complete a degree in Computer Science at the University of Cambridge. After completing his degree he joined Morgan Stanley as a graduate trainee where his talents were recognised and this eventually lead to an acqui-hire whilst at NatWest Markets by Deutsche Bank.

Rick remained at Deutsche Bank for 11 years, working on and leading various Front Office trading, risk management and reconciliation software platforms, eventually becoming the Chief Architect for Global Markets Equity and Equity Derivatives.

In 2009, Rick left to pursue hands-on software development again, developing software for the recently released iPhone, but eventually returned to the complex world of financial institutions and server-based software development in 2011 as in independent contractor.

In late 2015, Rick was introduced to R3 and joined in early 2016 as the first permanent hire into the newly formed Engineering team, and has worked on Corda ever since. Today he co-heads the Core Engineering team along with Kat Baker.
