About the Software Engineer (C++ Unix) Role:
This is a really key position to be filled and will be responsible for the support, maintenance and tweaking of existing applications where required whilst developing new solutions from scratch.

This is quite a demanding area of the business as it supports some key clients so prior experience of financial services is key as you really need to know processes and the challenges that can be encountered within such an environment or it could be considered too steep a learning curve with the expectations from day one. This role will differ immensely from full SDLC development and coding to looking at a code that can be several years old to working closely with Business Analysts scrutinising needs so you need to be flexible and wiling to roll up your sleeves and deliver as required.

As some clients are operate from abroad, there is the occasional need to work slightly earlier hours to accommodate their working hours and additionally, if errors occur out-with working hours that prevent business continuity or services, occasional on-call support may be required so a flexible outlook is required.

About You

We are looking for an experienced Engineer who has a great attitude to work, enjoys problem solving, enjoys getting in to the guts of activities and code, pulling things apart to identify the error, to make the improvements needed or to contribute to the delivery of reports through your own bespoke creation(s).

Essential Skills and Competencies:

Extensive C++ Programming skills
Experience of Unix
Experience of Oracle
Experience within Financial Services and awareness of processes and challenges
Excellent analytical and problem solving skills
A real CAN DO attitude
A proactive person who is always looking at what can be done yet very reactive when needed
