    Trading Operations Specialist

     

    Overview

    Do you enjoy working at the intersection of finance and technology to rapidly diagnose and resolve business-related problems presented by traders at some of the world’s leading financial institutions?  Do you get bored doing the same tasks every day?  Do you get excited devising creative solutions to difficult problems?  Do you want to be viewed as a “trusted advisor”?  Can you handle pressure-filled situations while remaining cool and collected?

     

    Broadway is looking for a London-based resource who will partner with our end-users on the trading floors of some of the world's leading financial institutions.  This is a unique opportunity to show off your business and technical acumen.  This is not your typical support role, nor is it for the faint of heart.  This is your opportunity to be at the forefront of one of the most exciting areas in financial technology – electronic trading.

     

    This role requires a geek-meets-adventurer personality that thrives on facing challenges head-on in new and unfamiliar environments.  You will be backed up by our world-class team of developers and have an arsenal of diagnostic tools at your disposal.

     

    Responsibilities:

    • Cultivating and managing relationships with traders via in-person meetings and phone calls
    • Rapidly diagnosing and resolving issues relating to trading components and end-user GUIs
    • Creating end-user documentation and contributing to the knowledge base
    • Thinking on your feet to address issues ranging from missed fills to optimal user interface configurations
    • Analyzing large data sets and presenting actionable feedback to internal and external customers
    • Proactively preventing future problems by devising both tactical and strategic solutions

     

    Requirements:

    • 2-5 years previous experience supporting traders is a MUST
    • Strong attention to detail, self-management, initiative, discipline, and follow-through
    • Exceptional problem-solving ability
    • Pristine written and oral communication skills
    • Unrelenting dedication to customer success
    • Bachelor’s degree – finance, economics, or engineering preferred

     

    Strongly Desired:

    • Familiarity with SQL
    • Familiarity with at least one scripting language (preferably Python)
    • Familiarity with European fixed income markets (cash and futures)
    • Familiarity with the foreign exchange (FX) market
