Keywords: Java, multithreading. Low-latency, high throughput, real-time

A global finance firm is seeking a Java developer to work in their small front office pricing and risk team.

The team is responsible for multi-asset class pricing and risk calculations - working in a fast-paced environment, keeping a watchful eye on market activity and modifying prices accordingly. As such, the problems come thick and fast so a keen eye for detail and the ability to assess the impact of changes is an absolute must.

This is a high availability, multithreaded Java platform that's being managed by an Agile development team with a high skill level. Having said that, the dress-code is casual, the working hours are reasonably flexible, and the team genuinely seem to have great fun doing what they do.

If you have had a minimum of 2 years' experience in a high volume, low latency environment, in or outside of finance is fine, this I an opportunity to take a huge step forward in your career.

To be considered for this role you should have:

  • Multithreaded Java experience
  • Appreciation of low latency, high availability systems

You will be rewarded with an excellent salary package and the chance to work in an environment that you get to see instant results from the work you do.
