Full Time

This is a permanent opportunity with a leading hedgefund based in Central London.

For this role, they are looking for a very particular skill set and are offering salaries up to £100k, plus bonus and benefits.

You will be working in the front office, sitting directly opposite the traders so you must have excellent experience of this in the past and have extremely strong communication skills. Coming from a development background will instantly put you ahead of the game with this role, as you will be taking part in some tactical development - which is why I am contacting you. This could be a great opportunity to use you development skills and develop your business skills by interacting with the traders and portfolio managers on a daily basis.

Technically you need to have the following skills as a MUST:

- Experience with a programming language (e.g. PERL or Java)

- Experience in a Windows and UNIX environment.


These technical skills are not musts, but are highly beneficial:

- FIX Protocol

- Other scripting languages including: PowerShell, Bash etc.
