Full Stack Developer (Java/React) – Finance/Greenfield/Manhattan

Our New York office is looking for a Full Stack Developer to join our team and initally work on a project where our client is looking to create a cohesive framework to enable their clients to create custom workflows using the appropriate functionality available across its suite of applications. 

About us

Adaptive was founded in 2012 based on the common desire of four software engineers, who met in the trenches, to work together again. It was built from the ground up as a place where talented people can find challenges, and get recognition commensurate with their abilities. We provide the opportunity to tackle a variety of complex problems using cutting-edge technology, to meet our clients’ needs and ambitions.

Since our humble beginnings, we have grown to over 200 people in 4 locations (London, Barcelona, Montreal and New York), while maintaining the same ethos.

We focus on the delivery of bespoke solutions, as we believe this is the key for our clients to keep control over their core business activities and maintain a competitive advantage. To mitigate the risk in investing in a new build, we have an array of accelerators at our disposal, including our Aeron-based, battle-tested platform Hydra.
