  • Lead the data processing initiative including data loading, normalizing and reporting
  • Propose and develop applications and tools to facilitate operational efficiency and reduce risk through workflow and process automation
  • Design and develop middle and back-office systems to ensure data accuracy
  • Produce daily and intraday internal reports including PNL reconciliations and settlement reconciliations

What you'll need as the successful Senior Software Engineer:

  • Demonstrated experience with the design and development of middle and back-office applications and systems required
