The ideal candidate will have strong knowledge of FX including of Orders, Market Data and Market Micro Structure.

  • Strong multi-threading, concurrency, garbage collection skills
  • Demonstrable experience working on highly distributed systems
  • Good understanding of low latency systems

  • Strong communication skills and ability to add value in an Agile environment

This is a fantastic opportunity to play a key part in a long term programme of work at a leading Investment Bank.
