job summary:
Job Description:

  • We are building a new strategic reference data platform for client, account and instrument data. Platforms initial rollouts have been extremely successful and we are looking to expand and extend. We need top-tier engineers who have a and successful track record of solving hard problems and out of the box thinking. We work in a dynamic environment and expect new joiners to be flexible, self-sufficient and learn our business, our data and our technology stack with minimal supervision. They will lead the push for horizontally scalable, high performance applications.
  • As per the description, we place heavy emphasis on the candidates ability to learn, adapt and work with minimal direct supervision.
  • Java/Scala/Python , SQL, Agile Development
  • The tech skills we require are not that common, so actual hands-on experience with something like RDF or Scala is less important than demonstrated willingness and ability to learn.
  • To that point, I expect the candidates to have done at least a few hours research on their own and be able to have an intelligent conversation about these concepts the first time I speak with them.
  • However, at least 5 years of heavy, hands-on, software development in a 3rd-gen language (Scala, Java, Python etc.) is a requirement.
  • We also require the candidates to be capable of basic data analysis and requirements gathering. They should come prepared to learn not just the technology but our business processes and our data as well.
Skills:

  • 5+ years of Java, Python (or similar) programming, Scala is a big plus
  • Problem-solving and communication skills and enjoys a collaborative environment
  • Flexible, self-starter, fast-learner - willing and able to quickly learn new technologies and skills
  • Experience with functional programming is a big plus
  • Experience with graph technologies is a plus. Familiarity with Semantic Web (RDF) and Sparql is a plus
