Lead financial technologist/architect (China opportunity)

Allen Kuo
Lead financial technologist/architect (China opportunity)

A Chinese firm located in Beijing wishes to build a prototype
front/middle office financial system application for mainland Chinese
corporate (possibly bank) treasury clients. The firm requires a basic
prototype system in hand before it attempts to market and raise
further capital for the endeavor. The firm will hire three
people/consultants to build this prototype, on contract for one year.
We are currently searching for a “Lead Software Developer/Architect”
who will be responsible for (a) designing a treasury management system
(b) hiring two Chinese software developers (with at least one of those
responsible for front end development) to help develop the system, and
(c) to be the lead advocate for the system as the core product for a
startup Chinese company. Should the project go well, there will be
opportunities to continue development full time and help build the
business in China.

Possible functional requirements for the system: portfolio management,
cash/FX management, capital management, ALM, compliance, derivatives
pricing, risk management, reporting.

- BS, MS or PhD in computer science, engineering, physics, math
- At least 5 years working experience in a structured software
development environment at a corporate treasury or financial services
institution (preferably bank or broker/dealer but could be buy-side)
- Broad corporate treasury or financial institution domain knowledge
(e.g. treasury office workflows, portfolio manager workflows, trade
life cycle, etc.) but also ability to code in object oriented language
(back-end coding of logic/analytics  more important than front end
- (a) Software developers at dedicated financial software application
firms or (b) financial domain specialists (e.g. quantitative risk
management) who have coded in a structured software development
environment may also be considered, if there is broad understanding
of treasury front office and middle office operations
- excellent object-oriented language programming skills (e.g. Java, C++)
- have managed a small team of developers (but we may also consider
those at the cusp/transition of software development career and about
to move into this role)
- entrepreneurial. Flexibility in understanding the needs of Chinese
corporate clients, which may be much different than western firms, and
able to transform workflow requirements into useful tools

Useful qualifications:
- QuantLib coding experience/contributor
- SQL, database schema design
- experience using scripting languages such as perl/shell
- Mandarin Chinese (speaking, listening, reading)

Location: TBD but possibly US, Hong Kong, or Beijing

Salary: 90,000-100,000 USD (one year consulting contract)
