Montreal, Québec, Canada

The Firm-wide model control system is the cornerstone of the Firm’s model risk management, used by front-office, control and oversight functions. With increased regulatory attention to model risk management, the system was largely re-written last year, using the latest technologies. This is a high-profile system, with visibility at the highest levels of the Firm. While a lot of work has been completed, a number of related systems still need to be redesigned and connected. We are also planning to continue extending the core system.

We are looking for an experienced, hands-on senior Java developer to work in a team of 8-10 people. Members of our team have access to the business unit and have direct input into software design. Therefore the candidate needs to be a self-starter, smart, and a highly motivated team player with clear communication skills.

In addition, the candidate must value producing quality software and have a solid grounding in computer science fundamentals.

As one of the leaders, the new hire would be expected to oversee and mentor a group of more junior developers, to develop a partner relationship with the business, to provide significant input into the architectural direction of the project as well as write code.

We would prefer someone who can assume responsibility for a number of subcomponents as well as lead, oversee and mentor other developers working in these areas. The right candidate should enjoy working in a highly collaborative environment that values teamwork and offers a lot of flexibility as long as productivity and quality is there.
