Software Engineer - F&R

Job Description

This role sits within our Financial & Risk ("F&R") business. On January 30, 2018, Thomson Reuters announced that it signed a definitive agreement to enter into a strategic partnership with private equity funds managed by Blackstone related to the company's F&R business. As part of the transaction, Thomson Reuters has agreed to sell a 55% majority stake in Financial & Risk and will retain a 45% interest in the business. Thomson Reuters will maintain full ownership of its Legal, Tax & Accounting and the Reuters News businesses. The transaction is expected to close in the second half of the year and is subject to specified regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions. When the transaction closes, this role will be included in the new F&R entity. Further information on this can be found at

As a Server-Side Developer at TR REDI, you can tackle a broad range of projects focused on low latency, high speed financial applications written in multiple languages and on various platforms. From C++ to Java, Windows to Linux, back end database to inter-process communication, you should be comfortable in all tiers and have a willingness to learn new skills as we evolve with the changing technology landscape. Successful server-side developers take ownership of the products that we ship, and, as such, are expected to work with Product Management to determine business requirements, come up with high level designs, evaluate build vs buy options, work with QA in testing, and deliver and maintain the applications in production. At TR REDI, we value the ability to think and learn over simply being well-versed in a specific language, as this allows for us to be agile and adapt as needed.
