So, who are we?

Hello, we’re IG Group. No, not Instagram – though we're a pretty big deal ourselves. We’re a global, FTSE 250-listed company made up of a collection of progressive fintech brands in the world of online trading and investing. The best part? We’ve snapped up many awards for our top-class platforms, forward-thinking products, and incredible employee experiences.

We believe in financial freedom. And our purpose is to help ambitious people achieve it. Around 400,000 people use our ground-breaking technology and forward-thinking platforms to trade the financial products they know and love.

Did we mention we have offices in 18 countries? Yes, when you join IG Group, you'll have the chance to work across multiple brands, with people all over the world. Join us for an exciting future and let’s innovate together!

Your position within the Team:

As a highly experienced Senior Software Engineer, you will be expected to quickly play a hands-on role in developing low latency, high-throughput and high-performance services where reliability and accuracy are paramount. You will be enthusiastic about making contributions that help the team meet the challenges we face, delivering high-quality software within a complex business domain. The role expects you to be conversant with modern software engineering principles such as CI/CD pipelines, TDD etc to deliver high-quality software that accurately represents the business domain

What you will do:

You'll take an active role in an agile scrum team working on new projects and enhancements to the existing estate. You'll work closely with others and be able to suggest improvements to all aspects of the development process and product.

  • Developing quality software to business specifications 

  • Participating in the software development life cycle

  • Investigating issues in the software when they occur and fixing them

  • Maintaining CI/CD pipelines

  • Supporting our applications in all environments

Who we’re looking for?

You’re curious about things like the client experience, the rapid developments in tech, and the complex world of fintech regulation. You’re also a confident, creative thinker with a knack for innovating. We know that you know every problem has a solution. Here, you can try new ideas, and lead the way in creating inspiring experiences for our clients and everyone around you.

We don’t fit the corporate stereotype. If you want to work for a traditional, suit-and-tie corporate that just gives you a pay cheque at the end of the month, we might not be for you. But, if you have that IG Group energy and you can stand behind what we believe in, let’s raise the bar together.

What you will need:

  • Demonstrable understanding of modern C++, including STL, OOD/OOP and C++ 11/14/17.

  • A practised user of LINUX command line and scripting.

  • A good understanding of the Agile process.

  • Proficiency in design at system and component levels, with the ability to take ownership of features.

  • Good troubleshooting skills and able to eventually join the support rota.

  • Experience in or willingness to learn distributed, low-latency, highly-concurrent systems will be a plus.

How you’ll grow

When you join IG Group, we want you to have more than a job – we want you to have a career. And you can. If you spot an opportunity, we want you to chase it. Stretch yourself, challenge your self-beliefs and go for the things you dream of. With internal and external learning opportunities and the tools to help you skyrocket to success, we’ll support you all the way.

And these opportunities truly are endless because we have some bold targets. We plan to expand our global presence, increase revenue growth, and ultimately deliver the world’s best trading experience. We’d love to have you along for the ride.

The perks:

It really is more than a job. We’ll recognize your talent and make sure that you can still have a life – at work, and outside of it. Networks, committees, awards, sports and social clubs, mentorships, volunteering opportunities, extra time off… the list goes on.

  • Matched giving for your fundraising activity

  • Flexible working hours and work-from-home opportunities

  • Performance-related bonuses

  • Insurance and medical plans

  • Career-focused technical and leadership training in class and online, incl. unlimited access to LinkedIn Learning platform

  • Contribution to gym memberships and more

  • A day off on your birthday

  • Two days’ volunteering leave per year.

Where you’ll work:

We follow a hybrid working model; we reckon it’s the best of both worlds.  This model also feeds into our secret ingredients for innovation: diversity, flexibility, and close connection. Plus, you’ll be welcomed into a diverse and inclusive workforce with a lot of creative energy.

Ask our employees what their favourite thing is about working at IG, and you’ll hear an echo of ‘our culture’! That’s because you can come to work as your authentic self. The things that make you, you – like your ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, age, gender identity/expression or physical capacity – can bring a fresh perspective or new skill to our business.

That’s why we welcome people from various walks of life; and anyone who wants to help us realize our vision and strategy.

So, if you’re keen to connect with our values, and lead the charge on innovation, you know what to do.
