What you'll do

As a key part of the FX Front Office delivery team, you'll be working to drive significant technology change, as part of a major new investment programme. This will involve making a real contribution to the on-going design, development and support of our platform.

You'll be confident working on your own initiative and be able to hit the ground running. Experience with large scale, high volume, fault tolerant, business critical web applications in an enterprise environment, would be desirable, as would experience working with Caplin or WebSockets for streaming data.

You'll also ideally have experience of:

  • Agile methodology
  • Foreign Exchange and Investment Banking 

In addition to the requisite technical skills, you'll need to be an enthusiastic team player, capable of working effectively under pressure and achieving great results.
