THOUGHTFUL INVESTMENT SOFTWARE

Your career with Ryedale

We are building a strong and diverse team.  We are always looking for individuals who can complement or add to our capabilities.

 

If you have experience of investment software, be that in developing, implementing, supporting, or selling, we would like to hear from you.  Our working environment offers a high degree of flexibility where you can contribute to an interesting and growing business whilst achieving balance with your life outside work.  

Technical Writer

Location: London, King’s Cross.

Salary: Negotiable.

We are looking for someone to take ownership of our customer-facing documentation.  The ideal candidate would be able to communicate well, particularly in writing, and would be well versed in the technologies necessary to produce high-quality, multi-media documentation.  Our subject area is necessarily complex, and although we do not seek prior experience of either software development or investments, we need to see evidence that knowledge of these topics will be rapidly assimilated.  We see the production of documentation as a collaborative task.  We expect a specialist technical writer to originate only a proportion of the documents we deliver to clients, but to take responsibility that the work originating with others reaches a publishable standard. 

Responsibilities will include:

  • Curating, editing, proof-reading and correcting all of our customer communications, including technical documentation, web-site material and marketing.
  • Expertise in online documentation publishing (Wiki / markdown / HTML etc.) and knowledge of suitable tools.
  • Creation of screen videos and other instructional multi-media artefacts.
  • Ownership of overall design and consistency – having an eye for the how it all fits together.
  • Participation in general project work and product delivery.

Trainee Software Engineer

Location: London, King’s Cross.

Salary: Negotiable.

From summer 2019 we are again offering the opportunity for a graduate with a scientific or quantitative finance degree to join our software development and client implementation team.  We are looking for someone with the desire and potential to become a great developer in the financial technology sector.  The successful candidate will have some experience programming in an object-oriented language, perhaps as university project work, although not necessarily in the specific languages we use.  We look favourably on candidates who have passed one or more levels of the CFA exam.  Candidates from scientific but non-finance backgrounds are also very welcome to apply.

 

Responsibilities will include:

    • Programming in C# and SQL on Microsoft Azure
    • Working on client implementation projects.
    • Understanding the investment process at our clients.
    • Working with our software engineers to meet new client requirements.
