This company is a well-respected and successful powerhouse of quant analysis, modelling and prediction used by high-performing hedge funds. Their systems run 24/7, making it critical that all software is cleanly written, well-documented and easily scalable. As they expand their capability, they are seeking a few select software developers to work on their core investment platforms and systems.
Working in a .NET / Microsoft environment, candidates must be fluent in C# with proven commercial experience in a high-performance and high-reliability environment. You’ll know how the language works, what subtle flaws you have to look out for, and what strengths of the language you can use to your advantage. You’ll recognise that quality of code is important, and will prioritise thought-through solutions rather than a series of patches and quick hacks.
Candidates for this position should have a strong academic background (a 2.1 or above from a reputable university and very good A-levels too), and demonstrate a continuing interest in new technologies and development methodologies. Experience with numerically-focussed code will be a big plus.
On offer to the right candidate is a peerless remuneration package, with plenty of benefits and perks to go with. Based in Central London, the company’s offices are easily reached from multiple tube lines and train stations, and boast a pleasant and modern open-office development environment.
If you think you have that edge over other coders, the best ideas and coding solutions at your fingertips, and want to be part of this exciting environment, do apply now!
