As a developer in the Short Lifecycle Products team, you'll be working closely with our traders to provide solutions when they are needed - as soon as possible!
That means taking a pragmatic approach to software development - it doesn't mean cutting corners, but we favour working code in production over beautiful design documents, and we like getting things done.
Trading is an incredibly dynamic and fast-paced environment, so if the requirements change in the middle of the project, that's fine - we adjust.
We're working on tools that might not necessarily be around in a years' time but can generate a lot of business value today.
Although primarily working in Python, we are language agnostic as a team - you might be helping a trader with a gnarly SQL query one day, doing post-trade analytics and monitoring in Python the next, and writing a Kafka Streams topology in Java the day after. We're looking for financial technologists that can think creatively about solutions.
Discuss workflows and processes with trading to spot where technology can help drive efficiency
Write Python code that will help traders monitor positions, risk, market-data, opportunities and operational performance
Maximize the use of internal data systems such as Kafka, Materialize, TimescaleDB and HDFS
Work closely with other Technology teams to ensure our systems are running to their maximum potential
Some of the technologies we use in the development process:
Bitbucket for code review. We do all work in pull requests, which are reviewed by other developers
Bamboo for continuous integration
What you need to succeed
5+ years' professional experience as a Python Developer
BSc or MSc in Computing Science or equivalent
Previous experience in the financial industry is highly advantageous
