Software Engineer, Portfolio Management

Location: Copenhagen - Headquarters, DK

Do you want to work with, and learn from, 700 highly skilled colleagues in the Product Development division? Do you want to work with an enterprise IT system that will challenge your abilities as a software engineer, teaching you how to build quality code that can last for decades and be part of the world’s financial infrastructure? Do you want to be part of a company where you over time can develop as a specialist, try out new roles, or experience new challenges either in other parts of the Product Division or outside? Then read on.

The position
You will be working in an agile team of about 5-7 people. The team improves and supports the Asset Manager module in our SimCorp Dimension product. In your daily work you will – together with your team - understand and challenge customer requirements, discuss solutions, implement and test the chosen solution, and support it. We use a variety of tools, but the main ones are C# and an Oracle database. You will mainly be working with backend and APIs.

The present and near future main topics are good maintainability, high system performance, continuous integration and delivery, and moving unto our unified platform for cloud.

In addition to implementing customer features, it is essential for us to continuously improve on all levels: company, division, ART, team, and individual. Your daily work life will thus also include topics such as “how can we reduce our build time”, “how can we rearchitect this component to perform significantly faster”, and “how can we work together in a more fun and effective way”.

You will be working in our headquarters in Copenhagen. English is the corporate language and is used in all communication.
Your qualifications and values
Most importantly, you can see yourself contribute and thrive in the position described above. How you gained the skills needed for doing that is less important. You may be a recent graduate from an IT education or you have another relevant background.

We expect you to know some of the following and be able to - and interested in - learning the rest. 

  • C# and .NET development
  • Architecture for enterprise systems
  • Testing. E.g., TDD, agile testing, test automation, test methodologies.
  • Domain knowledge within finance – ideally within portfolio management
  • System performance
  • Continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD)

As a person, you value

  • Taking ownership and achieving results
  • Trying new approaches to both new and old challenges
  • Working with others to leverage the strengths of everyone in the team
  • Learning new skills and improving upon existing ones
  • Continually looking for ways to improve what we do and how we do it
