A World Leading Energy Trading Company has an exciting opportunity for a Systematic Trading Developer with expert level C# skills and experience using Python, SQL and Azure DevOps.

Job Description:
The role is a practical, pragmatic and development focused role where a good understanding of the tech available is used to deliver insights and applications directly in the team.
– Quickly gaining knowledge of the landscape is vital in making this role as effective as possible, as work items will often involve reaching across numerous data sources in order to achieve goals. Working is in an agile, self-supported manner and the expectation is that the individual will work to deliver based on high level briefs.
– The key requirement is building tools and infrastructure which can be leveraged across the Sys Trading team and the wider company organisation to support the three main goals of the group as necessary. I organise the resources in a flexible fashion based on assessments of the problems at hand, so this could cover the direct proprietary trading activity of the team, the build out of tools to provide quantitative insights to the group and the wider business, or the automated trading capability being developed in the ATC project if necessary.
– It is essential that this individual is comfortable working in a self sufficient and agile fashion, and can find creative solutions to problems. This role would not suit developers who normally play parts in huge, long duration projects.
– This will also include significant technical work and collaboration with other members of the Sys Trading team, and the wider organisation. Behaviours such as collaboration, transparency, humility, pragmatism and a sense of perspective (I do not want somebody who wants to redesign/rebuild approaches because they believe they have not been built to ‘their standard’) are just as important as technical skill. Indeed I would rather hire an average skilled or less experienced individual with great behaviours, than the other way round.

Skills/Experiences:
– Very strong C# experience
– Python (Pandas, NumPy, SciPy)
– SQL development and database design
– Azure DevOps
– Experience working as a developer/analyst/consultant using these skills at bank/fund/commodities house would be a big plus.

This needs combining with a positive attitude and an ability to work within a large, globally dispersed project team in a multi-cultural environment. You also need to be a self-starter, a logical thinker and a quick learner, with strong initiative and excellent communication, interpersonal and presentation skills, able to write clearly and concisely.
