This top-rated software development house works closely with many aspects of financial trading and investment services. Their products work to automate and control trading, perform large-scale real-time data analysis, and link to external data feeds, APIs and cloud services.

Security of their software is always of paramount importance, and they already have robust and well-tested protocols and verification checks in place. As they expand their products and adopt newer and more efficient technologies, they need to maintain their existing high standards in house, and ensure any new software meets their stringent expectations.

They are seeking a senior developer, with proven commercial experience in developing, analysing and implementing security architecture in a number of environments. Key criteria sought are:

  • a strong, formal background in Computer Science (or related) with a 2.1 or above from a top university;
  • fluency with development in a modern OO language (ideally C#, but can be C++, Java, etc.);
  • experience with security and cryptography software, libraries and controls, including (m)any of: authentication, cryptocurrencies, PKI, transactional integrity, obfuscation or distributed security;
  • knowledge of sandboxing, VMs, reverse-engineering, risk modelling and threat analysis.

Successful candidates will enjoy a top-tier salary, with multiple benefits and potential bonuses. This position is based in Central London, easily reached from multiple train stations and tube lines. Working in a modern and relaxed office environment, you’ll be joining a professional and friendly team to deliver some excellent software and shape the future of the company’s software security architecture.

Candidates from all industry backgrounds (not just finance-related) are encouraged to apply, though this company’s bar is rather high so you’ll need to be a close match to the above profile to be considered for this position.
