Scala Developer w/ Securities Experience

Pumex is now in its seventh year of business, and we are growing at a phenomenal rate in the commercial, non-profit and federal markets. Pumex was started because we saw an opportunity to bring core values that are often overlooked in the software development industry. We believe in creating an employee-centric, value-based organization that puts employee and customer satisfaction at the top of our priorities.

Our client, a leading global wealth manager with strong investment banking capabilities, is looking for Scala developers to join their global development team.

Position Description

You will be working on a highly distributed, low latency e-trading system developed on a Java and Scala server platform. The system runs multiple algorithmic processes that generate real-time prices, position and risk updates, and communicates with many electronic markets. The system relies on modern technologies such as reactive programming, grid computing and distributed caching.

The role will involve all aspects of the software life cycle including gathering requirements from the business, analysis of existing systems/functionality, design and implementation, all the way through to production roll out and subsequent support. We need flexible candidates who are practical technologists, show excellent problem solving skills and enjoy all aspects of software development.

The successful candidate will work closely with the several global teams within the FID Credit technology department and also interact directly with the Corporate Credit business unit and with the Firm’s middleware IT groups when using their frameworks and software.
