Summary

What we do

Our focus is building a tailored, online, financial application to service our clients in the capital markets and hedge fund sector. We use a variety of languages in our tech stack which include C#, JavaScript and SQL. Our system is growing and we need Developers to help make this platform great. We place much faith in our developers and have built generic tools for our Analysts to keep themselves productive whilst the Developers carry on with more challenging requirements.

Why work for Us

We offer a relaxed, yet exciting environment where your contribution is recognised and visible daily. We have the backing of an UK based company who afford us access to and use of the best technologies we desire. We are big enough to get involved with a number of exciting projects but small enough to not just be a number in a team.

Outside of work we offer monthly social events. Our team is made up of a mix of cultures and personalities from Gaming enthusiasts to marathon runners to morning surfers.

Our Culture

We have an open and honest culture in the office. The office is open plan so everyone has an open door policy. For those that like a bit of exercise, many of our staff go on regular runs where everyone is welcome. Social events are important to us, which is why we have a dedicated social committee that keep our social calendar dotted with epic events. Our dress code is relaxed. We are the development house and are not client facing, so come in shorts and slops if you want! ;-)

Our Engineering Process

Our software development lifecycle can be described as a hybrid model. Taking from agile and other SDLC best practices to create our own unique way of doing things. Developers and Analysts work hand in hand to flesh out specifications and our QA guys are just waiting to try and break our code.

Our Hiring Process

Our interview process consists of a tech and HR related questions and assessment. We want to ensure that not only do you have the right tech skills but that you will “gel” with the team. At the interview you will have opportunity to ask as many questions as you want to and be shown around the office so that you will feel comfortable and have enough information before joining the Global Backoffice team. An interview is a two way street: We are selling ourselves as much as you are so we both can be happy
