Financial Derivatives – Front and Middle Office – London, U.K.

This looks like JP Morgan Kapital hiring.  The work is wholly in Smalltalk (they say they will consider an otherwise experienced candidate willing to learn Smalltalk fast) on derivatives (they imply that area too could be taught on the job).  Candidate must have good mathematical and agile development skills, and (since they will be working with front and middle office) good communication skills. Ads are here and here.
