Python Engineer wanted by this leading global energy and commodities broker.

Due to continued and sustained growth, they are looking for a talented Python Developer to work alongside their front office Derivatives traders to design and develop bespoke analytic and risk management tools for their real-time energy trading platform.

Sat on the trade floor with the traders and the quants, you will work with the business and take responsibility for the full development lifecycle from requirements gathering, creating technical and functional specs, architecture design, development and testing through to deployment in a live trading environment.

You will also be expected and encouraged to keep up with the latest technology, researching and recommending new tools, libraries, processes and methodologies to ensure the platform is constantly evolving and optimised.

There is potential for this role to develop into a technical leadership role for the right candidate.

Skills & Experience

  • Experience of developing complex, ideally scalable and transactional systems
  • Continuous integration
  • Agile software development
  • TDD/BDD, Functional/Unit testing
  • SQL Server

Ideally you will have some of the following:

  • Front office trading, risk or algo systems
  • Derivatives/OTC markets knowledge
  • Mathematical pricing models
  • Commodities / Energy systems experience
  • GUI development using Qt5 / PyQt5 or Enaml
  • Distributed / Concurrent programming
  • ORM for SQL preferably SQLAlchemy

What they offer you:

  • Competitive basic salary

  • 10% Pension Scheme
  • Gym (in the building)
  • Restaurant (in the building)
  • A supportive, growth and learning environment
  • A healthy work/life balance (you are not expected to work long banking hours!)

Headquartered in London but with offices across Europe, Asia and the USA, they have fostered a highly successful and collaborative working environment focused on being best in class with a passion for excellence.

This is a great opportunity for a talented and intelligent Python engineer to break into the financial sector and learn about Energy and Commodities trading (Derivatives) or for a Python developer in finance who wants to work closer with the business.

Either way, you will be developing complex front office trading, risk and analytic tools for their real-time platform.
