We are looking for a front-end developer to join the Equity Global Risk and Scenarios (GRS) UI team. The GRS team is responsible for aggregating end-of-day risk and calculating overnight risk for the front office, including traders, risk managers and Strats. The front-end, which we are hiring for, is a rich, interactive web UI that summarises vast amounts of end-of-day risk, as well as ticking intraday risk and market data, into as concise a way as possible for managers overseeing a large number of trading portfolios. It is important for this front-end to be very responsive and quite thin, with a framework that allows for fast definition of new real-time and historic reports. The application is built using HTML5/ExtJS 6.0 in the front-end, however, we are in the process of migrating it to React. It uses GigaSpaces in the middle tier, which is used as the application model for the front-end. It is a very high-profile application with a great deal of visibility to the front office.
We are a very technical team, where self-motivation, technical skills and strong interest in design and technology are highly prized. We follow the Agile approach to software development and work closely with business sponsors, staying flexible and responsive to their needs.
