Job description

Sinara is currently looking for talented graduates to join our software engineering team in 2024. If you want to pursue a career in Software Engineering and are a recent graduate or expect to graduate in 2024, you might like to apply to join us as a Graduate Software Engineer, to start in the summer of 2024.

Are you excited by code? Well, the Sinara Software Development department is filled with people who are passionate about code and the whole development process. Working with Sinara, you would find yourself working in teams committed to using the best programming techniques in building applications that are used by major businesses in the world of Finance.

If you are interested in using C# and typescript to build great software and willing to learn, then this is the opportunity for you.

You will get the chance to share information and your own ideas with colleagues and even clients of both a technical and non-technical background.

You will have the opportunity to join a team, develop your existing skills and learn new ones whilst working on an active project, collaborating with staff from all over the company in a variety of tasks.

Your first project may involve working on applications such as trading systems, options pricing algorithms, or market surveillance tools, including web, desktop and mobile front-ends, as well as back-end algorithms, communications and databases. The work is often technically challenging and will certainly help to accelerate your growth.

Career progression

Sinara places great value in the growth and development of all of their employees. You will be supported throughout your career by an experienced mentor. As your career progresses, we will work with you to shape the scope of your role.

You might choose to continue focusing on programming and technical excellence, or to shift towards other parts of the engineering process such as business analysis and project management, or to find a balance somewhere in between. We encourage everyone within Sinara to take responsibility in a variety of areas including client relationship management, product & library development, technical quality, recruitment and mentoring.

We also allow staff to engage in research projects into new and emerging technologies as well as undertake training that will enhance their skills.

What we are looking for

If the role description interests you, then you’re already half-way there. We are looking for graduates who have a desire to produce high quality software and that enjoy solving all kinds of problems.

In order to do well, you will need to carefully design solutions to technical challenges. This will require creative thinking and attention to detail. You will need to be able to think beyond just what is stated in requirements to achieve quality.

Previous financial knowledge is not required, you will certainly learn on the job. Candidates should be eager to learn new technical skills and develop their domain knowledge.
