We’re seeking an experienced and driven Senior Software Engineer to join a cross stack Agile Team developing new features and improvements to a software suite providing solutions to our large Financial Industry Clients, enabling the management of their Securities Financing and Collateral Management operations.
This is a phenomenal time to join Broadridge’s SFCM Development Team. The Department is currently in the progress of large-scale modernization of working practices across almost all operations, from commitment to the continuous evaluation and evolution of planning and dedication that is at the heart of Scaled Agile, to complete overhaul of our source control management model, investment in DevOps, and a shift towards growing modularity of design as our applications fit into the large ecosystem of solutions that Broadridge provides to clients as a whole. Our Developers work in self-managed Squads delivering and giving to the overall global Product with involvement and influence at all stages of the software lifecycle.
