Empiric Solutions are working with a blue-chip, global investment bank, based in Glasgow City Centre, who are experiencing significant growth, which is creating the need for various new roles. There are multiple positions available, within various different teams across the organisation. Various projects focus on big data, cloud and automation. Developers are expected to be aware of modern development techniques including TDD, BDD, and Agile. An exciting role developing a real-time Price and Risk management system has opened up, and is used by the bank's Trading desk. The team is based across various regions including America, Europe and Asia. Presently, one project involves migrating solutions for AWS, and unifying its instances globally into a more centralised multi-time zone installation. The system is based on Linux OS, which technologists must have experience with. The system is programmed in Smalltalk and uses the Gemstone object database. As these technologies are not as commonplace, the successful technologist needs to have a strong OO background (Java, Python, C++, C# preferred), and will cross-train to learn Smalltalk. There will potentially be some instances where Java and Python will need to be used. The role requires technologists to have the following experiences: - Data modelling - Linux - UNIX - TDD, BDD, and Unit Testing - OO language experience (either Java, Python, C++ or C#) - Clear communication (as the role will involve communication via telephone to clients, and other members of the team within different time zones)
