2018 IT Graduate Training Programme

BidFX are seeking final year IT undergraduates to join our 2018 software engineering training programme based in London. We are recruiting now for students due to complete their course next summer. Employment will nominally commence in early September 2018, although we can offer some flexibility on start date.

You will need to have:

  • Predicted first class or 2:1 degree in Computer Science or related technology subject.
  • Studied at a Russell Group university, or equivalently ranked overseas institution.
  • Solid programming experience in either: Java or JavaScript.
  • Excellent spoken and written English.
  • Right to work in the UK.

In addition, you will be enthusiastic, organised and adaptable: a quick learner, able to pick up new technology with relative ease. You will have a flair for software design & development, be dedicated to quality and have a passion for programming. You will also have good interpersonal and communication skills, and be able to fit easily into a multi-discipline team.

You will be given the opportunity to work in an agile environment, developing key systems using the latest technology. Many graduates are unsure of which aspects of IT they want to apply themselves to: front-end, middleware, server-side, full-stack, database or DevOps. Our training programme will let you experience a wide range of technologies and programming languages, so you can ascertain which is right for you before you feel a need to specialise.

Expect to work on projects involving any of: Java, JavaScript, C#, Python, Ruby, SQL, Excel, front-end UI, middleware, server-side, cloud services, REST, binary protocols, FIX connectivity, network security, instrumentation, reports, pixel perfect UI designs, graphics and more. You already know how to program but we will teach you how to develop production quality financial applications and services that transact billions of dollars per day. You'll be taught by the best, so expect to learn to do things right: to plan, design, test, document and educate, as much as to code. 

We do not require applicants to know the details of the foreign exchange markets, we will provide training, but an interest in finance would be of benefit.

If this sounds like you then click the apply button and attach your CV. We'll hook you up with one of our 2017 graduates so you can discuss what it's like to start your career at BidFX.
