This is a hugely exciting role and the successful candidate will have unrivalled support to create a cutting edge technical environment for one of the most profitable Equity Derivative Teams in the World.

You must have held a similar role before within a Derivatives Function (Equity Derivatives would be ideal). Salary Package is based on a business bonus and is completely negotiable (again, you will not find better). You will not find a better opportunity to join the Business and become a key individual in its success. Please do not apply if you are not hands-on in C++. Also, the salary for this role should be a guide to the type of candidate we are looking for. This role is based in either NYC or Chicago.
