KDB Developer | VP | London & Remote | £100,000 - £130,000 (Base) + Package

One of the world's leading Investment Banks is in the midst of a huge recruitment drive with the aim to hire multiple KDB Developers into their London HQ. Sitting at VP-level, these roles will be focused on developing state-of-the-art Front Office/Trading solutions within the Algo & Electronic Trading Team.

Reporting directly into the Director of AETT, you will be essentially given the free reign and autonomy to craft said solutions in an evolving Agile environment. You will deliver cross asset KDB+ solutions to support FX / rates / credit and Equities businesses as prioritised, with a wider focus on both integrating and leveraging the latest Data Science platform being build into their KDB estate.

Moreover, you will be given the opportunity to integrate into the current codebase and 'make it your own', focusing on the design and development of new features/components.

The team itself is distributed across multiple locations (London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore) so your role will also involve a large degree of stakeholder engagement, especially with business-facing stakeholders due to the strategic nature of the team.

In terms of what you need to bring to the table... some (not necessarily all) of the following would be ideal:

  • Strong Q/KDB+ programming skills and an appreciation for Linux OS.
  • Proven commercial experience working on Front Office/Trading applications.
  • Knowledge and experience of languages including C++, Python and Java.
  • Experience working across the full SDLC, with an understanding of Agile.
  • Good experience working with low-latency systems.

In return, this organisation is offering a diverse benefits package including an annual discretionary bonus (typically 10-20%), non-contributory pension (10%), private healthcare and flexible working hours. Moreover, they are offering a competitive base salary ranging from £100,000 - £130,000 (DOE).

So if the timer has stopped just before 60 and you like the sound of this role then give me a shout! I can be contacted via the following:
