'In Financial Circles, It's PRETTY WELL KNOWN That Trump Is a Deadbeat'

'In Financial Circles, It's Pretty Well Known That Trump Is a Deadbeat'

"Everybody knows that Donald Trump is a showman, and that's helped rocket him to a level of political celebrity most people wouldn't have imagined. But it looks to me like Trump is about to experience the downside of sudden political fame. That downside is scrutiny. Trump doesn't seem to mind--indeed, seems rather to enjoy--the scrutiny of his personal life, the models, etc. But he's awfully thin-skinned about his business affairs, and that's where things are heading next.

Last night, NBC News did a damning expose of Trump's record, which is replete with bankruptcies, lawsuits, and aggrieved former investors. But that only scratched the surface. Trump's hilarious, bombastic dismissal of Mitt Romney's business career, coupled with his heightened political profile and rampant egotism, suddenly seems to be rubbing Wall Street folks the wrong way. Financiers who chuckled about Trump, have become peeved and willing to share their thoughts on his business acumen."

Large Financial Firm in Midtown is looking for C# developer proficient in Winforms or WPF GUI development.   Must have at least 1-2 years of professional development experience, but 3-5 years is ideal.  Will consider candidates up to 7 years of professional experience.

Position Description:

The portfolio risk and margins team develop and support The Bank's global margin requirement calculation system. We are building a cross-asset class, portfolio-based margin calculation system that also does U.S. regulatory requirement calculations and generates portfolio risk measures that used by our risk managers to review and assess the margin requirements. 

Calculations are triggered by regional overnight batches, and they also run in on-demand and near-real-time systems during the day. Calculators are implemented in Java, and GUIs are in C#. We use Perl and Python to load data, to build tools for developers, and to glue the system together. We also rely on industry-standard technologies such as Sybase, DB2, IBM MQ, and web services. 

We are looking for a .Net C# developer with experience building WinForms applications. The position will be broad-based across the team, with particular focus on enabling the Risk Management teams of various businesses to define and implement different risk/margin calculations quickly. This is a good opportunity to work on some challenging technical problems while at the same time getting exposure to market risk methodologies.

Required:
Client side C# development, with emphasis on windows as opposed to web 
WinForms, 
Strong fundamental technology skills (OO design, threading, SDLC) SQL (Sybase preferred)
