– experience in an agile environment with user stories as the primary method of requirements capture
– pertinent buy- or sell-side experience with knowledge of financial products and processes

You are:

– a self-driven and proactive professional who thrives on cross-group collaboration
– comfortable proposing and objectively defending solutions in a demanding, collaborative environment
– passionate about the development of elegant IT solutions and the role of modern software in the realization of optimal business outcomes
