This Investment Bank is looking for a contract Developer to work on the build of a risk application. This is a new solution so requires an individual who has a strong systems / full application build background, rather than someone who has just focused on individual components. You will be involved in architectural discussions and designing how the new system will fit in to the current environment. It will require you to work with front office users, risk, senior IT management and tech teams (both internal and vendor based). You should be able to run discussions based around the full technology stack.
It is also vital that you possess strong development skills as you will be primarily responsible for building and delivering the solution. Technically you will have very strong Python skills and ideally some Java knowledge as well. Python is a must, and will include in depth knowledge of microservices framework, containers and building UI’s. You will regard yourself as a Python specialist. Java is the secondary skill and is used for integration work to other systems. This isn’t a prerequisite, but it is likely that you will have used some Java during your career in a system build capacity.
Capital Markets front office experience is required around Fixed Income, Rates, Credit or FX products. Any knowledge of building risk engines or working on curve building projects where there has been quantitative content, would be beneficial. Whilst this role does have a significant element of quantitative development (circa 50%), it is broader than that so you must be happy working on full application / systems development. As a result, this might not suit someone who is solely focused on being a quant dev.
