110/hr Post Trade Tech./Funct. (FIX, etc.). 12 Months. 100% Telecommute Contract. Minneapolis, MN et al. (L-3906) (A)


Do you have 5+ years in the trading domain?  Have a history working with FIX (Financial Information eXchange)?  Exchange-to-Exchange (E2E) solutions?  Then this gig might be of interest to you.

In short, the client needs someone to drive creation of interfaces using various pre defined integration patterns and approved technologies to deliver based on the requirements with multiple exchanges, brokers, and execution tools.  The need is ASAP (goal is to start someone in 4-6 weeks).  Work can be done 100% remote, but ideally, client would have resources work onsite once "safer at home" COVID virus orders not in effect.  However, if candidate is 'outstanding' they would consider they being remote for the entire contract (but bias is to candidates that are open to working onsite once COVID issues resolve).

So, if this sounds like you, APPLY TODAY!!

    08/12/21 18:55 PM . Tim Bauer. Client tables our submission. Had solid skills relative to investigating and identifying FIX issues. However, concern was didn't have as much exposure then figuring out what the down stream implications of that issue would be (solution experience was different than client setup).
