C++ Software Engineer

Melbourne, Sydney

Bring your passion for software development as a versatile backend developer and join our technology team. You will apply your solid experience with C++ in Linux systems to extend and transform our flagship global derivatives trading system for the Commodities and Global Markets group.

This is a great opportunity for a developer with strong technical and communication skills to deliver in a global and dynamic environment.

Some of our projects include substantial engineering to move our architecture to cloud native infrastructure, others to incorporate new ideas on devops and CI/CD processes into our builds, and others involve projects focussed on core business delivery – such as building out a new generation of regulatory risk computation processes, executed on large-scale distributed compute architectures.

We want to empower you to continuously develop, so as a member of our team you will be supported to explore and grow through experimentation, learning and community involvement, as you build a rewarding career here with us.

Ideally you will have:

  • expertise in building and maintaining applications using C++ in the Linux environment
  • good exposure to the Java/JVM and Python ecosystem
  • strong knowledge of SQL databases
  • experience with CI/CD environment
  • strong (if not outstanding) analytical abilities and problem solving skills
  • relevant tertiary qualifications in engineering, computer science or equivalent

If you also bring an interest in mathematics, financial products and risk, we have great opportunities for people with strong domain experience in investment banking risk.
