Senior Site Reliability Engineer (SRE/Azure)

Who we are:

For over 50 years, we have worked closely with investment and asset managers to become the world’s leading provider of integrated investment management solutions. We are 2,800+ colleagues with a broad range of nationalities, educations, professional experiences, ages, and backgrounds in general.

SimCorp is an independent subsidiary of the Deutsche Börse Group. Following the recent merger with Axioma, we leverage the combined strength of our brands to provide an industry-leading, full, front-to-back offering for our clients, with SimCorp as the overarching company brand and Axioma as a key product brand.

As a global provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) investment management solutions, SimCorp supports clients 24/7 through delivery centers around the world. Our Global Delivery Centers are located in Manila in the Philippines, Noida in India, Kyiv in Ukraine, Warsaw in Poland, and in Mexico City, Mexico.

SimCorp is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to building a culture where diverse perspectives and expertise are integrated in our everyday work. We believe in the continual growth and development of our employees, so that we can provide best-in-class solutions to our clients.
