Your role
Can you solve those problems that require the tightest of feedback cycles between developer and trader? Can you balance finely tailored development with a sustainable, long term strategy? We're looking for someone like this to:
- build out our front office tools
- gather requirements from front office users of all seniorities
- leverage strategic applications as much as possible while meeting rapidly evolving business needs
- subsequently either fail fast or partner with the application teams as they incorporate the new business

About us
Expert advice. Wealth management. Investment banking. Asset management. Retail banking in Switzerland. And all the support functions. That's what we do. And we do it for private and institutional clients as well as corporations around the world.

We are about 60,000 employees in all major financial centers, in more than 50 countries. Do you want to be one of us?

Your team
You'll be working in the Equity Derivatives Desk Development team. Traditionally we deliver two things: a C#-based analytics platform and a suite of ready-to-use tools based on that platform. There're also new initiatives including Python and scripting languages, etc. The team works within the front office on every aspect of the equity derivatives business from back-testing to pricing to booking to risk management.

Your experience and skills
You have:
-minimum of 5 years or less development experience; sufficiently advanced (Excel or C# or Python) to be indistinguishable from magic
-at least an interest to learn (C# or Excel) and Python
-demonstrated the ability to work on several different tasks simultaneously
-the drive to pick up business knowledge along the way from every opportunity
-the ability to adapt quickly to new business requirements on a daily basis. Experience in a front office environment would be a plus

You are:

–an excellent communicator with strong internal client relationship skills
–a self-starter, able to create new solutions independently, as well as in a team-oriented, collaborative environment

What we offer
Together. That's how we do things. We offer people around the world a supportive, challenging and diverse working environment. We value your passion and commitment, and reward your performance.

Keen to achieve the work-life agility that you desire? We're open to discussing how this could work for you (and us).

Take the next step
Are you truly collaborative? Succeeding at UBS means respecting, understanding and trusting colleagues and clients. Challenging others and being challenged in return. Being passionate about what you do. Driving yourself forward, always wanting to do things the right way. Does that sound like you? Then you have the right stuff to join us. Apply now.
