After a successful first edition of the Software Developer Program in Amsterdam, we’re looking for fresh graduates for the 2019 group. We’re excited to extend and launch this program in our Cluj-Napoca office as well!
We prepared the program for ambitious, skilled and driven graduates who like to be challenged every day. The ideal candidate is the one who doesn’t accept the status quo and who strives to make visible contributions to the further growth of our business.
As a successful applicant to this program, you will join our software teams for 1 year to work on different projects. You will be continuously supported by various mentors not only in field of technology but also in area of personal development. Each project takes about two months to complete and covers different areas of our technology landscape. One of the goals would be to improve our proprietary trading platform that enables us to trade on exchanges worldwide.
You will work in groups on the projects and during the projects you will learn to work in an agile framework with sprints and with different software teams. After you have completed each project you will present your results to the management group led by the Global Head of Technology.
The program starts on September 1st 2019. A strong motivation letter increases your chance to be selected!
