Senior Software Developer

Vescore is the quantitative investment boutique of Vontobel Asset Management.
We are pioneers in the active management of risk premia in the areas of multi-asset, equity, fixed income and commodities. Founded in 1998 at the University of St. Gallen, Vescore was acquired by Vontobel Asset Management in 2016. We currently manage CHF 13 billion in assets.

At Vontobel, we actively shape the future. We create and pursue opportunities with determination. We master what we do – and we only do what we master. This is how we get our clients ahead.

Vontobel Asset Management is an active asset manager with global reach and a multiboutique approach. Each of our boutiques draws on specialized investment talent, a strong performance culture and robust risk management. We deliver leading-edge solutions for both institutional and private clients.

Vescore is looking for an experienced developer to support our established asset management business. The role requires a generalist with strong programming skills, open minded to banking and asset management business and its processes.

Your Challenge

Your Qualification

  • Comfortable in a fast paced, multi-tasked environment, and able to identify and implement improvements
  • Self-critical, hands-on and hungry for the next challenge, with several years of professional and proven experience in software development. A Master’s Degree or similar is desirable, but not necessarily in a technical field. Experience in the banking or asset management industry may be a plus.
