Senior Web Developer

SSGX (State Street Global Exchange) develops and runs world-leading electronic trading markets for foreign exchange, serving the majority of the world’s major financial institutions.

Opened in 2006, the Vancouver office is a pure software development shop, composed of front-end, server-side and database teams. We strive to maintain the kind of relaxed, creative work environment developers need to write great software.


The Front-End Team builds and maintains the user interfaces used by traders to exchange foreign currencies, treasuries, interest-rate swaps and futures. We also develop administration and monitoring tools. We care deeply about building user interfaces that capture user-intent accurately, quickly and safely. We work with Java and Web technologies.


We’re planning to expand our web offerings, and need a strong web developer to take a technical leadership role. We’re currently using AngularJS and are considering other technologies such as Dart for future projects. Most of our I/O needs are real-time, so WebSockets are on the radar.


Given our business domain, software quality and performance are paramount. We need someone who shares our dedication for writing software to high standards.

You will be expected to translate high level business requirements into workable designs, research and recommend technical architectures, draft UI mockups, write software, enhance our automated test frameworks, mentor less experienced developers, and interact with the QA team. In short, you will need the ability to communicate, lead, and be the driving force that pulls together diverse stakeholders to bring projects through to completion.

Senior level web talent is a must. Previous experience with Java Swing or other rich-client UI frameworks, or reporting is a bonus.

You must be passionate about UX and UI development, have strong written and oral communication skills, be legally entitled to work in Canada, hold a computer science or computer engineering degree from a recognized post-secondary institution, and be able to work at our Vancouver office on a daily basis.
