Software Engineeer (Polyglot)

I'm working exclusively with an Asset Management client who are building out their technical division and need a talented Senior Software Engineer to join their London team.

High level Engineers from well-known companies who have all joined because this is not your typical "financial".

You'll have lots of freedom / room to make key decisions, able to work with new technologies and work with team who share the same passion for quality.

Their financial traders are renowned within the industry and have strong track records. To put it bluntly, they make lots of money!

The company has 4.5billion in assets and this is growing.

The tech team operates as a separate identity as they do not want a "corporate" vibe.

The Engineering team attend meet-ups and are well known in the tech community.

It strives to use the most modern technology without compromising business risk and has to date enjoyed this technology platform as an edge over its competitors. The firm is and will continue to be a strong investor in technology and has a desire to stay ahead of its rivals in this space.

The CTO is a great guy with a wealth of tech experience. He allows his tech team to explore new technologies and tools and pushes them to up-skill at all times. It's not your average financial and they plan to keep it this way.

The job requires a candidate of exceptional talent that values teamwork and strives for high quality in their work. An affinity to test driven methodologies, mentoring, patience and a drive to push projects to completion.
