My client is a top Hedge Fund looking for an experienced Java developer to join a small trading technology team sitting within the business unit. This project is 75% new build work, the candidate coming into the seat will have a high level of autonomy and the opportunity to be innovative with new and existing technologies. Your work will be highly visible and directly impact the business. This is one of the only Java developer seats in London offering this level of genuine greenfield development work.

My client is a top Hedge Fund who are looking to build out a new portion of their business. The successful candidate will come into a small established team of exceptional technologists who are tasked with developing this system from scratch over the next couple of years. 

The system is being developed in Java and Scala in the main, however there is scope for flexibility in terms of bringing in different new and existing technologies, where they can positively affect the business. 

This team will be the revenue generators for this part of the business, so along with the interesting technical work on offer, there is also a large portion of business exposure and engagement.  

The ideal candidate will be someone sitting in a role within a technology company looking to move into a role within the financial technology space (experience within finance is not necessary, though an interest and willingness to learn about the domain is ideal).

Alternatively, they might be someone sitting in the technology unit of a large bank or financial establishment, who is keen to come into a more business related role on the buy-side, work as part of a smaller team, where their work will be highly visible and technically challenging. 


Key Requirements:

- Strong core Java (including concurrency, multithreading, garbage collection)

- Experience using Scala 

- Track record of designing and developing large scale systems 

- Ideally a knowledge/exposure to Python

- Keen interest in the financial markets 

- Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or related field from a top institution (Master's and higher is a bonus)
