My client is a top tier Investment Bank looking for an exceptional Java Quantitative Developer to sit within a unified cross-asset, front office team within the business unit. Reports into the trading desk, the total compensation available is extremely competitive, with a strong performance-related bonus culture.

My client is a Top Tier Investment Bank with an established eTrading platform recognised to be one of the best in the market. 


I am looking for a highly skilled Java QD to sit within a front office cross-asset team within the business unit of the bank. This team is comprised of some of the top technologists and quantitative researchers in London, focussing on the pricing and analytics for the leading electronic trading platform. 


Whist this team sit within a bank – they operate as a small self-contained team that is more akin to a small systematic trading firm. They own their own code base and have a high bar when it comes to the design and coding of high frequency trading systems and the associated analytics.


This area of the business is a consistent focus of the bank as a whole, and will continue to be as they look to maintain their position as one of the top platforms in the market. The management team are all from quantitative trading backgrounds making it refreshingly easy to get things done and effect change where necessary to improve the performance of the business and positively affect the PnL.


Reporting into the business unit, this team are tackling some very interesting business-related technical challenges along with a good mix of exposure to the markets, algorithms, and quantitative work. Not only this, the bonusses for this team come from the trading pool, meaning the total compensation on offer is exceptional. There is a strong performance-related culture in this team - your work will be highly visible, and have a direct effect on the business - this is in turn reflected in your remuneration. 


The ideal candidate is likely to be an exceptional performer from a technology team in a bank, a very strong java developer with an interest in the markets and etrading from a tech/non-finance company, or someone sitting in a business unit looking to gain access to one of the top performing platforms in the industry. 


Essential Requirements:

- High class degree (Bachelor's or Master's) from a top University in Computer Science or related discipline 

- Very strong Java development (ideally with experience in multithreading and designing highly concurrent, distributed trading systems)

- A good mathematical/quantitative apptitude

- Experience building high performance etrading systems  


If this opportunity is one that sounds of interest, or you would like more information, please drop me an email at . Alternatively, give me a call on +44 203 432 8464  - I look forward to hearing from you!
