Hi ChiPy community,

I have a long term contract, which will more than likely turn into a contract-to-hire, at a large Investment Bank in downtown Chicago.  We're ideally seeking a Python Developer that has 2+ years of "hands on" Python experience.  The client will consider someone that has never worked with Python if they have good experience with Perl or Ruby and are interested in learning Python.  We have a very competitive hourly rate.

Even if you're not in the market at the moment, I'd be happy to speak with you to network as I do see Python positions on a fairly regular basis.  Feel free to email me back or call me at the number below.  Here is the job description:

Our client is developing a new application that can evaluate rules across several documentation and settlement platforms. The project includes designing, developing, and supporting a Python based application for reference data retrieval and rules evaluation. The development team and partners are based in Chicago, New York, London, Toronto, and India. Coordination across all regions and front office development teams will be required to deliver a trade confirmation solution that will provide central and efficient confirm generation/matching for equity derivatives.

The candidate will be a mid level to senior developer responsible for contributing to all phases of the SDLC including analysis, design, development, QA, UAT, and tier 2 production support. Interaction with architects, business analysts, and developers within and outside of the hiring department will be required.

Required Technical Skills:

*         2+yrs of experience with Object-Oriented Design and Development

*         2+yrs of experience with Python, Ruby, or Perl

*         2+yrs of experience with rules engine development

*         Experience with test driven development.

*         Knowledge of database architecture and design (Sybase 12.5/15)

*         Full project development lifecycle

*         Experience with derivative operations processes, including static data, is desirable

Required Personal Skills:

*         Structured & logical thinking

*         Problem solving

*         Results oriented

*         Client focus

*         Strong communication (written & verbal)
