About The Role


This company is a financial powerhouse managing over $500 billion in assets. They are looking to escalate their London operations and focus on this market owing to the high standard of developers available.

This is a great opportunity to work directly alongside senior developers who have extensive experience at some of the top funds and banks in the city. The key technology stack will be in a Java ecosystem on a cloud-first system, but there will also be a chance to code in Python on some areas of the platform.
