About the project

Providing services within a medium-sized Adaptive team based in London and Barcelona on a project spanning a minimum of a year, to build a client-centric, multi-asset retail trading platform.

The engagement will include building a rich web Front End as designed by our UX team, new supporting components on the Back End such as a risk management system and an OMS, and integration with existing Back End components and infrastructure.

Our development accelerator Hydra, based around Aeron, will provide a resilient architecture for the whole edifice.

The engagement is a strategic project for Adaptive, so the project will be visible throughout the business.

Required skills:
  • Significant experience working in the financial sector, with experience working on Real Time trading systems being especially sought after
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • In particular, the ability to explain even complex concepts clearly through written & visual mediums is expected, so as to create a trusted set of reference documents for the team and for the client
  • Ability to work with distributed teams & keep everyone aligned on common goals without meeting face to face
  • Ability to create & maintain a product backlog with multiple stakeholders
  • Actively manage the client's expectations, make assumptions explicit and keep a log of important decisions throughout the engagement
  • Actively involve oneself in coming up with a realistic roadmap that mitigates project risk
  • Work with UX, QA and developers throughout the backlog building process, to avoid the roadblocks inherent in a sequential process
  • Active involvement with design activities
  • Take part in Event Storming/Workflow-Driven Design workshops (prior experience a plus)
  • Capture and define the processes/workflows impacted by the solution we are delivering
  • Active involvement with Quality Assurance, User Acceptance Testing activities
  • Write falsifiable Acceptance Criteria
  • Test the application manually & write bug reports to the same standard as a tester (if not with the same efficiency)
  • Take an active role/the lead in defect triage
  • Sufficient understanding of technical idioms
  • In particular, an understanding of data structures & communication protocols is expected to allow discussion with technical experts and the capture of related requirements
  • Keen understanding of the strengths and potential pitfalls that come with an Agile delivery philosophy, based on extensive personal experience
