Graduate software developers - Finance - Hedge Fund - Java/C++/Python - £40k - £60K
Graduate Developers / software developers are needed to join a highly successful technology focused financial hedge fund based in Central London.

As an entry level software developer you will receive a very competitive starting salary with the typical benefits that you would receive in any corporate environment (pension, health care, dental care, travel passes etc). On top of this you will be working in a fun and relaxed environment, wear casual clothes (jeans and t-shirt), company funded holidays and outings as well as a first class training scheme where you will be personally mentored by some of the best software developers currently working in the finance industry.
You will need to be a self-starter with (or about to achieve) a degree in Computer Science (or related field) from a leading University. *This role is not designed for highly experienced developers. You must have a strong understanding of software development and you must have a real desire to strive to be the best software developer that you can be (they want to hire the best!). Any experience or knowledge of finance is beneficial but by no means is it necessary; the most important aspect is the desire to work as a software developer.
This is a permanent position = Red Brick Universities only
