I am currently helping a Tier 1 Investment bank build out their internal development capabilities across multiple teams. The Real Time Risk & PnL team calculate risk and stream profit and loss data to traders on the floor, allowing them to execute trades at optimum times for investors. The development team is currently building out the next generation of the platform and API services. This is a mission critical system for the bank and they are now looking for a Technical Lead with expert Java Experience to join the team.

 

You’ll be joining a highly agile development practice and given a team of 3 developers to manage, whilst staying hands on yourself about 60% of the time. Your team will develop high quality software and be heavily involved in the end-to-end development lifecycle. This is a global team, so you’ll be in contact with developers across 4 continents, as well as traders on numerous desks. Similar systems are used in other industry sectors, so a background in financial services isn’t essential, but very advantageous.

 

Essential Skills:

 

  • Expert enterprise Java experience, either in Financial Services or a relevant industry
  • Excellent understanding of agile methodologies
  • Experience with stream processing and big data; Storm, Spark, MapReduce etc.

 

Desirable Skills:

 

  • Fixed Income knowledge
  • Good knowledge of a scripting language (Python, JavaScript, Bash, PowerShell etc.)
  • Understanding of HTTP, RESTful web services, API design etc.
  • Good knowledge of NoSQL, MongoDB, Couchbase or similar
