· Strength and interest in understanding and applying financial mathematics

· Enquiring mind, relishing complex mathematical and technical challenges

· Experience in developing and maintaining large, critical software libraries

· Comfortable working with VCS (including using git, code reviews, etc)

 

Ideally you will already have (if not, you will acquire in this job)

· Good SQL knowledge and understanding of databases

· Good understanding of Docker and Jenkins

· Knowledge of concepts relating to numerical precision in programming

· Knowledge of RESTful APIs - both for using first/third party APIs or libraries and building your own for first/third party consumption

· Experienced at TDD - writing Unit Tests and E2E tests

· Understanding of exception handling and error management implementations
