Job Description

Experience:

  • Extensive experience of working on low-latency execution platforms
  • Experience of Index and Forwarding Trading or Flow Derivatives trading products and flows
  • Extensive Business Analysis experience across the full project lifecycle, strong knowledge of agile development methodologies a benefit

Skill set requires evidence of:

  • 10+ years of professional experience in a Business analytical capacity

  • Self-motivated with an enthusiastic and proactive approach
