Job Description

Company Information

Pershing, owned by BNY Mellon, provides a broad range of financial business solutions to investment banks, broker-dealers, wealth managers, financial planners and advisers across EMEA. We provide sophisticated front-end technology and flexible middle office capabilities with execution, settlement and custody services. These are supported by a robust regulatory and compliance framework with dedicated client asset experience and expertise.


Job Description

We are looking for an outstanding, experienced C# .Net developer that can help to design, build and innovate throughout a project with a focus on high quality, consistent improvement and automation, but also look to share their knowledge and experiences with both the Platform team and the wider development department.

The right person will be joining a team that fully believes and invests in whatever it takes to deliver quality, including TDD, Continuous Integration and the automation of anything they can. The team have been a key driver in quality and best practices across the department and you must believe and feel comfortable in driving these beliefs through the department.

The correct candidate should also enjoy working collaboratively with the team and the business to solve very technical problems by leading or contributing in technical workshops and discussions, as well as love working with more junior members of the team to help improve and grow the teams’ skills and experience.



We have just delivered a high volume, complex event processor using Reactive Extensions (Rx) that processes business events in real time and passes them to other business applications. As part of phase 2, we would like to extend this real-time functionality to our clients via a brand new UI, allowing them to get notified of important events as soon as they happen, rather than wait until the end of the day.

We will also be working with another recently developed application purposely built for a relatively new, very large, ongoing project to provide a state of the art, digital front end to our clients and their investors. The application is responsible for uploading millions of documents a year to the third party using Hangfire and RabbitMQ. The business would like to extend the use of the application to streamline the entire document process.

As part of the platform team, the successful candidate will also be involved in the rollout of new tools and systems to help development processes, such as Jenkins, GIT and Octopus to the wider development department.
