Your responsibilities will range from developing code and small bug-fixes, to client enhancement requests and new project development. Your role will include requirements and code handover with the other groups in the development lifecycle, during which you will accurately communicate the milestone updates, highlighting any risks and technical challenges.
  • Quantitative Developer – you will help develop, maintain, and support our risk calculation engine – Adaptiv Analytics, a highly-engineered product capable of conducting complex financial risk calculations in a superiorly performant manner! As a member of our team of global quantitative specialists, you will be involved in the entire lifecycle of financial model development: engaging with clients, performing independent research, as well as designing and implementing models in C# .NET in a mathematically accurate and highly performant manner. Your responsibilities will include both small bug-fixes and larger project development, working closely with our other product development teams to deliver new functionality to meet our clients’ needs.
