about the role
Transform our Trading Technology!
We need you as a hands-on software engineer to help us transform our trading technology stack from an Excel / VBA front end to an Excel / Python based on solution.
Alongside this you will modernize and extend our C# backend. We support our Traders with a suite of approximately thirty Excel / VBA based tools.
As VBA is reaching end-of-life we need to decommission and replace them. We’re taking a twofold approach to this technology refresh :
You will move much of the existing functionality to the backend (C#) and collaborate with our web front-end team to ensure a complete solution is delivered.
You will ensure Trading continue to enjoy their current flexibility through our migration to Excel / Python. To do so you will need to work closely with our Trading department, understanding their needs as users and support their migration to your new Python based solution.
As Trading is at the heart of our business this is a high-profile multiyear project.
