Posted Apr 14, 2020 - Requisition No. 82469

Our team:

The Trade Negotiation team supports part of the interactive trading negotiation workflows that our clients are engaging in when trying to arrange deals with their respective clients on electronic markets. We work full-stack – from front-end UI work in JavaScript to supporting backend work in C++ on Linux across multiple asset classes. Our functions get used over 150,000 times a day, and are essential to our clients' business. We are working on retiring our big-iron based solution in favour of our new Linux-based solution. This new solution is currently being built and in parts actively in use. However, there are still several pieces of functionality that need to be designed and implemented.

We are based in London as part of the wider Sell-Side Pre-Trade team and working with our Sell-Side colleagues in New York as well as with our product team, QA, Help Desk and Business partners on providing an industry-leading, multi-asset class electronic workflow solution for the sell-side community. Being an enterprise product, stability, correctness, speed and quality is paramount!

What's in it for you:

  • You will be mainly developing in C++ for building distributed services and JavaScript to provide intuitive UIs and workflows. Automated Python-based service-level tests and GTest/GMock-based unit tests are helping with catching potential regressions.
  • Good communication skills are essential for dealing with internal groups such as QA, Business and other Engineering teams.
  • You are expected to contribute your own ideas and solutions and will be enabled to work independently after a short ramp-up period.
  • You will be involved in the full development lifecycle from requirements gathering to deploying the code. The day-to-day work will also include maintenance of existing functionality from bug-fixing to implementing improvements and refactoring.

Who are you?

  • A hands-on developer who is interested in full-stack development, UI as well as backend. You are keen to work with the team on designing and implementing a stable, scalable and high-performing product that is easy to maintain.

You'll need to have:

  • Demonstrated experience programming in C++ and JavaScript
  • Experience with distributed systems
  • Interest in the full software development lifecycle
  • Strong communication skills and experience working with other stakeholders throughout the development process
  • No previous knowledge of finance necessary

Interview process:

We believe interviewing is a two way street. It's a way for us to get to know you and your skills, and also a way for you to learn more about the team, our technical challenges, and what you'd be working on. The content of each interview round will be tailored to the role and your background, but the general framework can be found here:

We want to ensure you can put your best foot forward throughout the process, so if you have any questions or need any accommodations to be successful, please let us know!
