Note from manager:

“This team setup is more like a start-up technology firm than a typical Investment Banking IT. We are looking for hardcore coders, the type of people that keep up with the latest technology just because it interests them. We are not looking for people that are working on legacy projects at Investment Banks, where they have generally progressed with the technology of the firm, but lack a certain level of personal initiative.”

The positions will provide a long term opportunity within a dynamic team that is setup more like a start-up rather than a typical financial company. This team is extremely collaborative and this manager also holds weekly finance and technology training to further his teams career. These developers will work closely with business users, quant analyst and developers, and other members of the team to provide quality systems for the business that will be used to improve productivity, decrease operational risk, and enable the business to expand.
