Angular Web Developer
Ref No.: 18-08792
Location: Montreal, Quebec
Global financial firm in Montreal, QC has an immediate opening for an Angular Web Developer.

Version angular: 2+

The Equity Derivatives Pre-Trade Pricing and Execution Technology team is undertaking several programs of change, including the overhaul of the exotics workflow system and the creation of an intelligence-focused sales-desktop. The business is investing heavily in these platforms and components that still need key architectural decisions. In response to the growing demand, particularly from the NY trading desks, the team is rapidly increasing its developer footprint in Montreal.

This role is for a proven Angular web developer to help take on the UI side design and development for the projects outlined above. For this commercially focused role you must have excellent communication skills, have a strong delivery track record, and be able to pragmatically balance time to market against future-proofed design and architecture. A keen interest in the latest development tools and technologies is also expected. Equity derivatives product knowledge is not a pre-requisite but it is advantageous.
Reflecting the global nature of our business and systems, the pre-trade pricing and execution team is distributed between London, New York, Hong Kong, Mumbai, and now Montreal. The plan for Montreal is to hire a diverse mix of smart and experienced developers specialising in Java, Scala, C# and web technologies that develop a deep understanding of our business and client needs. Our overall team culture is to be active in many out of work activities both socially and volunteering our time through various firm sponsored activities.
