You will be working in the Athena Trade & Risk Services (ATRS) group in London. This is a global team that engineers and maintains the components in Athena responsible for trade capture, instrument pricing, risk management and P&L reporting covering all products and lines of business (Equities, Rates & Credit). In particular, the role focuses on the technologies used to expose real-time trade data to various user interfaces such as trade tickets & blotters, trade lifecycle management tools, risk & position viewers, and order management systems external to Athena.

Athena is J.P. Morgan's cross-market trade and risk management platform that provides functionality for trading & sales desks globally. Athena is built on top of a replicated object-oriented database, a powerful dependency graph and has a fully integrated stack across pricing, risk and trading tools. The code is a combination of Python and C++; Python for flexibility and C++ for performance. Athena is designed to provide a continuous deployment environment - enforced by the built-in SDLC.

We are seeking a technically strong and disciplined Software Engineer. Working closely with QR, Trading, Operations and other technology teams, you will be expected to deliver quality code in a fast paced environment that evolves as business opportunities present themselves. The role will require an ability to attain a clear understanding of Athena's environment and of the unique design considerations that come into play in a diverse and highly interdependent systems architecture.

You'll be required to apply your depth of knowledge and expertise to all aspects of the software development lifecycle, as well as partner continuously with your many stakeholders on a daily basis to stay focused on common goals. We embrace a culture of experimentation and constantly strive for improvement and learning. You'll work in a collaborative, trusting, thought-provoking environment-one that encourages diversity of thought and creative solutions that are in the best interests of our customers globally.

This role requires a wide variety of strengths and capabilities, including: * BS/BA degree or equivalent experience. * 4 years minimum experience in hands-on object oriented development; ideally with Python. * Ability to work in large, collaborative teams to achieve organizational goals. * Awareness of industry-wide technology trends and best practices. * Good communication skills and ability to collaborate with and influence other technology teams. * Experience in financial services or a willingness to learn about the business and the problem domain. * Familiar with object/relational databases, query optimization and processing of large data sets. * Self-starter attitude taking end-to-end ownership, contributing ideas, and removing impediments. * Understanding of financial securities modelling and their pricing and risk management would be a plus. * Experience working with JIRA and Agile development methodologies would be a plus. * Experience of front end development in TypeScript/JavaScript and frameworks such as React would be a plus.
