Jr. Trading Software Analyst

Jr. Trading Software Analyst, FX Derivatives Software Company, New York City

Harrington Starr have partnered with a small but well-established financial trading software company specializing in analytics for FX Derivatives as they are hiring for a Junior or Entry-level candidate to join the Product Support Specialist / Client Services team in their New York City office. The role is responsible for working closely with clients at brokerages, investment banks, and trading firms in a support / client services capacity as they use analytics software on their trading desks. The role offers a long-term opportunity to grow both commercially and technically becoming a Senior Product Specialist, Account Manager, or Business Analyst.

This is an incredible opportunity for a candidate with 0-2 years’ experience to join a well-established but steadily growing Financial Technology company with a great short, middle, and long-term opportunity for career growth in terms of technology skills, financial markets knowledge, and client-facing skills. You will be working closely with clients such as trading desks at investment banks, as well as senior members of your team and Account Managers.

Candidates should have a strong academic background ideally with a degree in Finance or Computer Science and both an interest and a basic understanding of technology and financial markets. A desire to learn is essential as there will be a learning curve to use the company’s proprietary trading analytics software systems. Knowledge of troubleshooting computers and IT systems such as command line and network connectivity is highly advantageous, as is XML and SQL.
