One of the most exciting & hottest new quant trading shops has an opportunity for a Java Engineer to join their Investment Team as a Fixed Income Quant Trading Developer. Their growth story has been exponential going from 300 million AUM to 4.9 billion AUM in under 3 years. They now have 200+ employees across 5 countries and 3 continents and can therefore offer a “start-up” mentality with none of the risk.

Due to the recent build out of their Fixed Income desk they are looking for a strong Java Technologist who enjoys developing projects from the ground up. They have a number of completely greenfield initiatives such as developing new systems to implement complex, data-driven strategies across different electronic trading venues with opportunities to get involved in Research as well.

This is a highly visible role with daily interaction with Quant Research, Traders and other Technologists.

What you need:

The successful Java Developer will need to possess the following:

  • At least a Degree from a leading University in Engineering, Computer Science or Maths
  • 3-5 years commercial experience
  • Solid track record of hardcore Java Development
  • Some experience within Statistics & Analytics
  • Preference for someone who has dealt with large amounts of Data
  • Excellent communication skills

Finance Experience is NOT required for this role, but an appreciation of the markets is always beneficial.

This is a small team so this role spans a whole spectrum from strategy to implementation. This candidate really needs to be an all-rounder, a self-motivator, resourceful and versatile with the ability to handle multiple tasks.
