Job Description

My client, a reputable Investment Bank, is looking to hire an Application Support Analyst to join their Equity Algo-Trading desk in London.

This is a brand-new role and you will be the first London-based Support Analyst for their new in-house built algo-trading platform, sitting directly with the front office trading team.

Some responsibilities include:

  • 1st/2nd line front office trading platform support of the platform as well as operational support (processes/monitoring/databases etc).
  • The platform is built in C# so you will be supporting Windows-based queries.
  • Analyse and dissect issues as they occur to resolve them quickly and efficiently.
  • Manage incidents and update key stakeholders
  • Interface directly with business and product teams on specific projects focussed on Equities Algo-Trading.
  • Regular hours, follow-the-sun model

To be right for this role, you must have the following:

  • Previous or existing experience supporting Algo-trading environment. Failing this you must have supported an execution platform (if not Algo then Equity execution)
  • Good Windows support knowledge.
  • Ability to write SQL queries.
