Posted Dec 22, 2022 - Requisition No. 112708

Our Fixed Income Trading systems offer end-to-end trading workflows including price discovery and negotiation, real-time analytics/pricing and execution, and are fully integrated with the Bloomberg terminal. 

Our team:

On the FI Trading Team, our systems are the gateway between Bloomberg and the financial industry, providing workflows for trading Interest Rate Swaps (IRS) and Credit Default Swaps (CDS), forming the largest buy-side electronic trading platform for fixed income derivatives.

We develop rich user interfaces which are powered by backend servers in C++. As developers, we own the software end-to-end, and use a variety of technologies whilst practicing innovation. Our software supports the entire trade process: displaying instrument prices on the terminal, creation of trading tickets, and processing of over-the-counter negotiations. CDS and IRS are complex derivatives featuring many important financial details, and it is therefore essential for us to build products that allow our traders to see a lot of information while keeping our systems performant and flexible.

You’ll need to have:

  • Professional C++ experience
  • Passion developing full-stack applications (UI and back-end)
  • A Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, similar field of study or equivalent work experience
  • Experience building robust, scalable production systems and working with multithreaded applications
  • Prior contributions to system design and architecture and scaling fault-tolerant, distributed systems 

You’ll have the opportunity to: 

  • Work on client-facing products
  • Own the full development process – from gathering requirements to testing, rollouts, and maintenance
  • Build high performance systems
  • Learn and influence how the financial markets operate by working closely with product managers and clients

We’d love to see:

  • Professional Typescript and Python experience
  • Experience developing full-stack applications
  • Familiarity with developer productivity tools such as Jenkins, Grafana and Humio
  • Experience with multi-threaded applications
  • Experience working in a UNIX or Linux development environment
