Senior Java Developer - Front Office
Posted on Oct 31, 2019 by Cloudstream
I am partnered with one of the largest Capital Markets organisations in the world who are currently recruiting for a passionate and experienced Java Developer to join their FX eTrading team. The team are currently responsible for numerous Front Office trading applications within the FX eTrading space and are looking for a hands-on Senior Developer to supplement their team and have an instrumental part in their upcoming projects.
The team you are joining will be starting the build of their next generation FX eTrading platform for the business in the New Year. This is to maintain its position as the market leader for FX trading. The existing platform is in the process of being redesigned and reengineered to a low latency and more scalable set up, in order to drive the integration to the new platform.
This is a Front Office role where you will be working closely with the business, traders and quants to gather requirements and turn them into innovative solutions.
The successful candidate will be a Senior Java Developer who is passionate about developing highly scalable/secure multithreaded code and enjoys working closely with the business in a Front Office facing role. You do not necessarily need to have previously worked within FX or eTrading (that will be a bonus), however you must have previous experience in a Front Office role, working with Traders and Quants.
Additionally, if you have previous experience of supporting a trading platform (3rd line) that is a massive bonus!
- Highly technical role on a mission critical application

- Support the platform during trading hours
- Deep technical knowledge of Java

FX or eTrading experience is desirable but not a prerequisite for this role!
