Senior Software Engineer (Frontend)

The world's largest asset class, debt, operates with the worst data.

Technology has revolutionized equity markets with electronic trading, quant algos and instantaneous news. However, in debt capital markets, the picture is completely different. It still behaves like it’s in the 1980s; trillions of dollars of trades are placed over the phone, news is slow, and corporate credit information is imperfect and scattered.

Our mission is to change this.

9fin's proprietary technology delivers fast and comprehensive financial, credit, legal & ESG analysis. Our clients are able to make faster, more informed decisions, win more business and most importantly, save time.

Our fast growing list of clients include 9 of the top 10 Investment Banks, leading Asset Managers, Hedge Funds and Law Firms.

What you’ll work on

Every day is different, but here’s an example of the kind of things you’ll work on:

  • Development and engineering primarily on the internal and external facing web applications of the 9fin platform.
  • This can range from getting involved in coding and implementation of features, code review and mentoring of junior developers, to involvement in early research and experimentation with new technologies providing input for new features and products.
  • You'll have the ability to move between working on our client facing web application stack, internal web applications and tools for our ML/AI serving & development systems as per your interests and active open projects.
  • Write code delivering new frontend functionality, consuming API’s, data routing/processing, automation and testing.
  • Opportunity to take on the technical leadership on projects, defining and designing systems, making quick proofs of concept and working closely with Product and our Clients.
  • Help to seed new engineering best practices by writing RFC documents and/or giving demos to the rest of the engineering org.
  • Continually improve on the 9fin codebase, taking the chance to automate, refactor and document when you can.
