As trading technology becomes more of a key component to the execution and success of Investment Banking, the need for experienced engineers is more crucial than ever. Software engineers for this firm are the innovators for not only the corporation in the way that they build and maintain technology, but also play a major role in the success of some of the worlds largest corporations. By joining the Electronic Trading Group, you will work side by side with traders, product experts, and quant analysts in building strategies and executing initiatives for the investment bank.

My client is looking for a strong Java Developer who is looking to play a key role in the development of front office applications on the trading floor. The candidate should be comfortable working in a high pressure, high standard, and dynamic environment. Getting involved in the implementation and design of new strategies/algorithms are a key focus for any new team member.

Contrary to the traditional Investment Bank, this group promotes a flat structure so that the technology division shares a direct relationship with the business. This is a highly visible position within a group that has gotten industry-wide recognition.

The ideal candidate for this team will have:

  • Experience with modern Java 8 (3 years in Core Java)
  • Have worked in server-side development in the past
  • Algorithmic development and multithreading experience is preferred
  • Knowledge of development, design, and architecture of trading systems
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills as interaction will be a key component to the success of the team



While experience in the financial domain is a plus, a simple interest in the financial space from a strong technologist would excite the team.

By joining the team, your focus would be to enhance and optimize their state of the art trading platform while also having an opportunity to build the next generation trading platform. In this role, you will interact with different areas of the business implementing some of the most cutting-edge trading technologies in the market.
