Job Title: Kdb Analyst, Financial Services - Dublin
Location: Dublin, Ireland

Job Description

We’re looking for graduates to join our January Alumni graduate intake in Dublin, Ireland!

The Opportunity

We’re giving someone the opportunity to become an expert in one of the most sought-after languages in Financial Services.

If successful, you will gain a place on our Graduate Programme and start your journey by training with us before going on to work as a Kdb Analyst at a global bank. Your role will involve collaborating with business stakeholders to solve complex problems.

The team is responsible for development and support of the production environment and this is a vital role within enterprise technology.

Kdb+ is a niche high-performance database used for Big Data, often handling billions of new rows per day. It was designed with the Financial industry specifically in mind and can store and process large amounts of data very quickly. For this reason, its used widely throughout banking, particularly for high-frequency trading, and is now gaining popularity in other industries/areas. It is still considered quite niche, so individuals with strong KDB knowledge are in high demand.

The role itself involves working closely with business stakeholders (such as traders) to resolve any issues with technical systems and applications. In a trading environment, traders will typically raise 'tickets' - requests for help - with the support teams, usually over e-mail or by telephone.

Our training includes:

  • Knowledge of the Markets and Banking business and products traded
  • Experience of working in a dynamic environment often with shifting priorities
  • Front to back awareness of processes within an investment bank (from sales to back office)
  • Awareness of Information Security policies and Technology Risk Management from an enterprise/banking systems context
  • Unix / Sybase / Autosys / Scripting / Oracle

We are looking for graduates who:

  • Can develop strong relationships with development and infrastructure support teams to resolve production issues in a timely manner
  • Work collaboratively with other teams across geographies keeping the business priorities in mind
  • Love programming and problem-solving
  • Work collaboratively with other teams across geographies keeping the business priorities in mind
  • Work well under pressure, can multi-task, deal with demanding customers, knowing when to push back
  • Are motivated self-starters and team players
  • Have strong written and verbal communication skills (ability to articulate technical issues to the business)
  • Are highly analytical and numerate
  • Have the right to work in Ireland
