Our worldwide client base spans more than 175 buy- and sell-side institutions, including investment banks, hedge funds, asset managers, commodity trading advisors and institutional brokers.

Located in Great Neck, NY with offices in North America, Europe and Asia, FlexTrade maintains an experienced staff of developers, programmers, strategists and product specialists, who work hand-in-hand with our clients' technologists and traders to break new ground in the field of electronic trading.

We offer competitive salaries, bonuses and a comprehensive benefits package.


The Team

We are looking for an amazing developer to join our team building FlexTrade’s OEMS platform, FlexONE, which is our state-of-the-art, fully integrated Order Management System and Execution Management System. This system was built from the ground up starting in 2013 and is written entirely in Scala.


The FlexONE team is split between our Milwaukee office, where the product was first developed, and our London office, which is now predominantly responsible for development of the UI for the application.


The London team is an experienced group of Java and Scala developers, with a deep understanding of UI and UX design. We deliver our software using agile methodologies, and we encourage best practices such as TDD, code reviews and pair programming for knowledge sharing and learning. Our team owns all aspects of the features they work on, from designing solutions to meet customer or product requirements, through implementation, QA and delivery. Each team member works on every part of the system.

The successful candidate will be someone with a passion for development who can complement what we do and bring interesting ideas and approaches. We believe that a great software engineer can pick up any technologies they need as they go, but some experience with the libraries and tools we use would be an advantage to any candidate.

  • Work within the team’s agile Kanban process to develop new features and bug fixes
  • Discuss feature requirements with account managers and design suitable solutions
  • Implement new features from the product roadmap
  • Implement performance enhancements in the core product
  • Design and build user interface components using Swing, considering good UX
  • Build unit tests using JUnit and Mockito
