    Refinitiv Benchmark Services -Software Engineer (Java)

    LSEG delivers truly world-changing insight based on rich content sources. Within this insight lies our Regulated Benchmarks Services Limited ("RBSL") technology group, which administers, calculates, and distributes Benchmarks across multiple asset classes across global jurisdictions.

    Working closely with business proposition leaders, product managers, architects, and other software development teams, you will be a Software Engineer (Java) for the RBSL Technology team (Bucharest). The team works to implement, maintain, and enhance enterprise solutions that support our regulated benchmarks, which includes a variety of foreign exchange and interest rate benchmarks and regulated indices.

    The short-term goal is to develop technology products into a single standardized platform/framework that will reduce complexity while improving time to market and scalability. The proposed RBSL solutions will be a series of inter-connected microservices that leverage common building blocks that will simplify dependencies yet require a high level of responsiveness and throughput. To keep pace with the demand for regulatory and market-driven changes LSEG products under the RBSL banner need to be built at large scale and cloud-native.

    The RBSL technology stack is a combination of legacy applications that are being transformed into a variety of cloud-native AWS technologies, Java 8 / SpringBoot framework and an AWS Aurora PostgreSQL database.

    If you are interested in working in a technology team associated with critical, large-scale, high performance distributed systems that set standards for financial markets, we want you on our team.
