QA Automation Lead - Java - Front Office Banking

My client, a global bank, is looking to hire a QA Automation Lead to join a brand-new team. This role will play a vital part in a greenfield options trading platform build which is set to be one of the most exciting programmes across the front-office function. You will be part of an exciting and highly skilled environment where the focus is to be innovative to create a market leading platform.

The ideal candidate will have experience working on trading platforms across front office derivatives e.g. options. They will also need to be confident in leading from the front and liaising with all the relevant stakeholders so front office business knowledge is key.

Candidates will need:

  • Strong Java knowledge with the ability to write a large proportion of the deliverable code.
  • Strong experience across Automation and Testing, pricing engines and framework testing.
  • Experience working on trading platforms.
  • Front Office business knowledge- ideally with derivatives/options
  • Previous experience as an automation test lead with an ability to lead from the front.
  • Financial Services experience
