Senior UI Developer

Location: New York, NY
Position Overview
Do you ever wonder how a hedge fund makes money? Or what tools a portfolio manager uses to rebalance their portfolios against complex mathematical models and benchmarks? Are you curious about the ins and outs of a fund manager's workflow? If so, keep reading. We need people like you.

Our client, a global leader in the financial industry, builds software for all supported asset classes (equity, fixed income, swaps, commodities, options) for hundreds of institutional firms with more than $3 trillion in assets. This team develops extensive and elegant JavaScript applications that span Investment Management, Portfolio Analytics and Trading Workflows. When hedge fund managers are using these applications, they have mere seconds to absorb the information on the screen and make critical decisions that move the financial markets around the world. As you can imagine, scale, speed and usability are primary concerns while developing the UI.

As developers, we don't like to be boxed in to specific roles. For example, if you consider yourself a front end developer, there are opportunities here to learn more about the middleware and back end systems. We take pride in owning the end-to-end development of the software stack. What makes this job great is not only the opportunity to work on tough problems with smart engineers, but also the exposure you'll get to Product Managers, clients, salespeople and other Engineering teams.

Qualifications:
  • 3+ years of experience designing and building workflows and UIs
  • A passion for working with and iterating on UI
  • Strong JavaScript and object-oriented programming skills
  • Experience or interest in the full software development lifecycle
  • A working knowledge of UNIX/Linux operating systems
