Java, Cloud Software Engineer - Fintech
You must live in the Greater Boston area to be considered for this position, even if you are working remotely:
Long-time Bivium client where we have placed multiple star engineers and managers:
Our client is looking to immediately add 2-3 software engineer with 2-8 years of TOTAL coding experience - (some of that can be internship-co-op) but you must have some professional career experience under your belt:
Key is Experience with Java, kafka, kafka streams, kubernetes, cloud
Somerville, MA - VERY HIGH Bar here
Our client has beautiful, modern offices very sharp group of candidates profitable and doing very well. Bivium has placed a number of engineers here, who LOVE the cultural, technical and business problems!
Our client is a small company (currently 84 employees) that specializes in the financial space, specifically in the securities settlements realm. We maintain fairly strict hiring standards.
Our basic hiring guidelines are:
candidates must have an undergrad gpa of at least 3.3/4.0 and have majored in computer science or related field (or demonstrated an interest in programming through electives/summer jobs/etc)
experienced candidates should have 2-7 years experience-- we take more experienced candidates with relevant experience (eg programming in financial realm)
candidates must have desire to "learn the business"-- we market ourselves as software developers and IT consultants who know the securities settlements business as well as our clients do
A bit more information about us. We consider ourselves to be "technology agnostic"--that is we hire people without the expectation that they are experienced in any one technology, but they are smart enough and interested enough to become proficient in any technology that we may require. That said, it is certainly the case that most of our client work is in the most common technologies--we see a lot of Java for our mid-level candidates.
In terms of relevant experience, simply writing software for a financial company is more relevant than unrelated industries, but not sufficient for a more experienced hire (i.e., 5+ years). Many people do technical work at financial firms and solve only technical problems without learning too much about the business processes that they are supporting. The extremely rare successful experienced candidate writes software to solve business problems (not technical problems) in back-office areas such as settlements, clearing, and accounting. Working in other areas such as stock borrow / stock loan, prime brokerage, position keeping systems, etc., are also relevant.
Why someone would want to come here:
I think the shortest answer is that we are the best of all worlds. We are a small company with a small company feel (great coworkers, no red tape, flexible schedules, casual dress code) but do work for some of the largest companies in the world in some of the most relevant and cutting-edge projects. The owners of the firm place a high value on the people working for them, and new employees will immediately have relevant work to do, and not spend their first year merely testing someone else's code. The company is also very good at rewarding hard work.
Great benefits, great bonus, great people and a great opportunity!
