ING is looking to hire a Front Office (FO) Equity & Commodity Derivatives developer.


Quantitative modelling involves the specification, calibration and integration of (stochastic) models designed to price and hedge (exotic) derivative positions taken by trading desks in Financial Markets.

    Both require interacting with other stakeholders such as Risk Management and IT.
