Job Description

Thomson Reuters Finance & Risk is looking to add a Sr. Software Engineer to our new World-Check One team at our new Technology Center in Toronto, Ontario. We have recently announced the expansion of our Canadian operations with the creation of a new technology center in downtown Toronto, Ontario.

Experience in this area is highly desirable.   The  Sr. Software Engineer should have the ability to deliver high quality work on time in a high-energy environment while collaborating and brainstorming with other developers in a dynamic team environment.  A combination of strong planning, organization, time management skills, and the ability to handle multiple projects are key. The  Sr. Software Engineer  will also contribute to the maintenance and support of production systems as necessary.

- Able to work independently with minimal direction and guidance to achieve goals

- Experience using Agile Methodologies

Desired Experience:

- Server side programming technologies including Spring

-  Managing code and changes in a team environment to include experience with source control utilities, such as Git

- Strong troubleshooting and debugging experience

- Comfortable doing small-scale design in addition to hands-on development
