Job Description: Senior Developer
Solaise Capital is looking for a highly capable programmer who graduated (2:1 or above) between 3 and 7 years ago with a Maths, Computer Science or Physics background. Experience in the financial sector is not a requirement but a genuine interest in financial markets is a clear advantage. Flexibility, a desire to get stuck in and world class technology skills are essential.
The role sits within development scrum team that covers front to back office applications. The server side stack is primarily .Net Core and Python with heavy uses of open source software. There is a mix of greenfield development work as well as maintaining and improving existing systems.
The role is based in a modern office by Victoria Station (though with significant scope for working from home). An attractive remuneration package (including equity participation) is available.
