From the biggest banks to the most elite hedge funds, financial institutions need timely, accurate data to capture opportunities and evaluate risk in fast-moving markets. With petabytes of data, our Query Language and Analytics team is at the forefront of innovation in our business.

We're developing a Cloud based low latency Analytics Platform and Screener Engine.

We'll trust you to:

  •  Collaboratively architect, design and develop JavaScript UI components and applications consistent with standard and project specific design principles, leveraging appropriate Javascript frameworks and technologies
  •  Use your strong design and development skills to help us showcase the core Analytics and Screening Engine through innovative and intuitive UI
  •  Actively participate in our daily scrums and help establish best design practices to influence architectural decisions and build various performance interfaces for our platform

You'll need to have:

  •  5+ years experience building rich and compelling user interfaces
  •  3+ years experience programming in object oriented languages
  •  3+ years UI Architectural experience and a willingness to work as a full stack engineer
  •  5+ years experience in Javascript, JQuery, HTML5, CSS, SVG, Open Source frameworks such as Angular/React/Ember, AVRO/JSON and RESTful Services
  •  Knowledge of asynchronous programming and event-driven programming paradigms
  •  Experience working in a Test Driven and Agile environment

We'd love to see:

  •  The ability to work effectively with Product and Engineering teams to influence technical vision
  •  Experience working with open source technologies
  •  Experience evangelizing solutions to stakeholders, including internal and external clients and C-levels leaders
