Do you want to participate in the continued development of a new and growing business area at SDC?

Do you want to take part in the continued integration and implementation of our Securities trading platform? Would you like to join a strong team and help us with new client implementations on the platform?


Become part of a highly professional work environment at SDC

We are now looking for an Architect and Lead Developer to join our team. You will get to influence a growing organisation undergoing changes, and with your solid software development skills, you will play a key role in the continued development of new business deliveries and the migration of new clients including new integrations.


In Securities Trading & Data Management we are currently running important projects like: Data Hub, a one stop architecture for all market and reference data, and Saxo Bank Investment Solution to be linked up with SDC’s Securities trading solution, enabling a best in class Investment Solution for SDC banks.


We are starting a new development team in Securities Trading & Data Management. For this to be a real success, we need an Architect and Lead Developer to work out of our Ballerup office. The rest of the development team will be based in Warszawa. Securities Trading and Data management has until now been primarily mainframe based. However, our sister department Derivatives-, Risk and Asset Management is all windows based. So, the technology is not completely new to us, so you will not be alone.  


The work environment in Securities Trading & Data Management, is characterised by openness, commitment, delegated responsibility and team work.  We offer excellent professional and personal development opportunities as well as good employment terms. We currently use a variation of Scrum and TFS for sprint and task management. Automated testing and good code quality are key aspects of this which are important to us.
