2018 has already seen a huge boom in development roles across the Financial Technology space across all languages, although particularly in the Java, Python, C# and Python, but the fourth quarter looks set to go into overdrive. The development boom has been fuelled by a number of factors including budget being freed up from the completion of Mifid II projects; the continued drive towards automation across the FinTech space; redevelopment of aging systems, and continued importance of best execution.
Java and C# have proven the most popular languages so far this year, across market infrastructure, buy-side and sell-side firms but Python is quickly catching up and C++ is holding steady. In order to land the best roles candidates are needing to demonstrate experience not just in the high level language but in a deeper understanding of computer science. This typically includes multi-threaded programming, data structures, algorithms and often the ability to switch between languages depending on the task at hand.
