About the project

Providing services within a medium-sized Adaptive team based in London and Barcelona on a project spanning a minimum of a year, to build a client-centric, multi-asset retail trading platform.

The engagement will include building a rich web Front End as designed by our UX team, new supporting components on the Back End such as a risk management system and an OMS, and integration with existing Back End components and infrastructure.

Our development accelerator Hydra, based around Aeron, will provide a resilient architecture for the whole edifice.

  • Ability to create & maintain a product backlog with multiple stakeholders
    • Actively manage the client's expectations, make assumptions explicit and keep a log of important decisions throughout the engagement
