Do you want to contribute to society, not just by helping improve people’s savings and pensions, but also by innovating on high quality software solutions?

What do we have to offer?

You will work together in a software development team within the Scenario & Asset Valuation (SAV) solution. The team consists of people with backgrounds in computer science, mathematics and computational science. We have a broad range of expertise and knowledge in our team and are keen on sharing this. We work together in an agile setting in T-shaped roles, contributing to all parts of the development process. You will work on the realization of new features, from design until production. As a team, we are responsible for the software of our Economic Scenario Generators (ESGs) that generate large numbers of scenarios.

Your daily focus will be on development, in both C# and Python. Our most important new project is delivering scenarios to our customers from our cloud-native platform, using state of the art cloud-native technologies. Cloud-based development will be an important part of your work.

The Scenario & Asset Valuation (SAV) solution

SAV is end-to-end responsible for the innovation, calibration, software and maintenance of our ESGs, and is in direct contact with its clients. The ESGs provide real-world scenarios for investment and risk management purposes, and risk-neutral (or arbitrage-free) scenarios for valuation purposes. In particular, the real-world scenario set is called the Ortec Finance Scenario set (OFS) and provides scenarios with a worldwide asset class coverage. The OFS is a cornerstone in the advisory services Ortec Finance provides to its clients and serve as a crucial input in the financial decision-making for applications such as ALM and risk management for pension funds, insurance companies, asset managers, sovereign wealth funds and private wealth management all over the world. SAV is an innovative multidisciplinary group of about 20 people with Quantitative Financial Analysts, Business Specialists and Software engineers.

Who are we?

Working at Ortec Finance means working somewhere else. It means working in a world where colleagues meet; gather knowledge and where likeminded peers are always willing to help each other. Where the organizational culture is friendly, flat and non-political.

Working at Ortec Finance also means working in a continuously innovating world where science, academics and mathematics dominate, since models are key in helping Ortec Finance’ clients with complex financial decisions. Because that’s what we love: giving our clients the best advice possible. Where the daily job is very in-depth, based on evidence and relevant for society. It means a job that matters. Where the learning curve is steep, we learn something new every single day. And we need to, because continuous innovation is key. Especially in a fin tech world. We don’t necessarily follow all conventions. Because yes, we are a bit rebellious too.

Ortec Finance is the leading provider of technology and solutions for risk and return management. It is our purpose to enable people to manage the complexity of investment decisions. We do this through delivering leading technologies and solutions for investment decision-making to financial institutions around the world.
