Lab49’s Java projects are usually involved in building server-side applications which encapsulate the workflow, processing, and business logic of our clients’ core trading business. These may be systems to manage the pricing of large portfolios of instruments; service-oriented architectures for building truly decoupled distributed systems; or data grid implementations for large-scale data-intensive applications.
Sometimes our projects include a web front-end component to them, so familiarity with Java-based web technologies can be a benefit but is not always strictly a requirement.
In addition, we are always looking for these core skills:

Professional software development experience, including at least 2 years with C# and .NET, Java technologies, WPF and/or C++
Strong grasp of software design patterns and effective development methodologies
Demonstrated experience writing commercial-grade software applications with a preference for thick-client apps over web-based apps
Deep understanding of multithreading and real-time software architectures
Driven to produce software of the highest quality through self-discipline, clear and engaged communication, and attention to detail
An abiding interest in and competence for solving real-world business problems (with technology as an enabler)
Ability to communicate effectively and to influence client strategy, tactics, and perceptions
Determination to succeed despite obstacles and challenges, and a positive attitude favoring achievement of goals over open-ended investigation
Highly productive software developer with the proven aptitude to understand and apply technology
Resourcefulness and independence
BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience
