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 Global Technology Application Delivery team in APAC. We are a small focused team building software components using Q, KDB, Java and C++ to create state-of-the-art global application to optimize the way UBS trades and risk-manages its client-facing business.
The general principals are as follows:
- Aggregate as much of UBS' principal flow as possible, regulations permitting, and do 'the right thing for the bank'
- Use this enhanced liquidity pool to offer a superior facilitation service to our clients
- Market our inventory to our clients intelligently - make UBS the go-to source of liquidity, and get paid a commission by clients that want the risk, rather than paying to offload into the market;
- Leverage these abilities into products that are liquidity constrained, for example derivatives and delta-one businesses

Your experience and skills
You have:
• Minimum 5+ years' hands-on experience working on core Java applications.
• Minimum 3+ years' hands-on experience working on KDB/Q.
• Experience with application design tools/frameworks. E.g. Eclipse, Ant, etc.
• Experience with multithreaded and network programming.
• Experience developing in a real-time, high performance environment
• Strong understanding of Design Patterns data structures and algorithms.
• Proficient in development on Linux platform.
• Experience with FIX
• Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or related technical fields.
• Experience of agile programming technologies will be an advantage.

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.
