We'll trust you to:
  • work on improving the user interface components for our desktop users.
  • help build diagnostic front end and server side tools to ensure that all BQuant components are in order and working correctly.
  • Work on improving performance, reliability, and fault tolerance of our systems

You'll need to have:
  • 3+ years of experience in software development
  • Strong knowledge of Asynchronous JavaScript
  • Strong knowledge of application architecture and design patterns
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills
  • Familiarity with unit testing and continuous integration tools such as Jenkins etc and concepts like Code Coverage, UI Automation
