Galatea is looking for an experienced Financial Software Associate to join our growing team! We are at the center of the digital revolution in finance and are looking for strong engineers who want to be part of helping to build and improve key systems used by our Capital Market clients. As a Financial Software Associate you will define, architect, and build strategic systems that facilitate access to trillions of dollars worth of liquidity and capital around the world. You may also have the opportunity to do hands-on programming in this role. This is a perfect role for someone who enjoys leading projects and rolling up their sleeves to support their team’s work.  Access to liquidity and capital makes an incredible difference in people's lives every day by allowing them to make contactless payments, get microcredit loans, buy houses, start small businesses, and more. As a Galatean, you will be a big part of that by providing a direct impact on streamlining these processes and making them more accessible to everyone!

A look into your first year on your client project:

Within the first few months of your first client engagement, you will:

  • Learn about Galatea’s collaborative culture and values and become an active participant in discussions.
  • Witness and learn about Galatea’s client-focused delivery approach and the ongoing value-add we provide to our clients everyday.
  • Take ownership over increasingly complex design, analysis, planning, and software-related tasks while working towards independence on assignments.
  • Begin to establish relationships with client contacts.

Within 12 months, you will:

  • Increase your impact by challenging yourself to architect your own small applications or small pieces of larger applications.
  • Be the go-to person for clients serving as a subject matter expert in many areas within your project.
  • Share your financial and technical knowledge by contributing to internal Galatea training sessions.

An Insider's view of Galatea Associates

What does career growth look like on your team?

My current project is in it's 5th year. When we started I was leading a team of 4 junior associates. Today we are a team of 13 with associates leading individual work streams. As members of the team developed, I relinquished many of my responsibilities to them. My ultimate goal is to foster a team where nothing would change if I wasn't around.

Managing Partner

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our tagline, “Wall Street, without the suits” couldn’t be more fitting. We take some of the smartest people in finance and tech and remove the typical formality and rigidness. Comfort in the office includes casual dress, a well-stocked kitchen, a common area to chat and play Mario kart, and our very own Galabar for a drink at the end of the day!
