This position, like my previous post, is at Kapital’s Glasgow site, this time working on maintaining and improving the engine infrastructure rather than on specific tasks for the end users. Kapital’s meta-data framework is implemented in VisualWorks and Gemstone. This role may also have to deal with the Unix architecture beneath, and occasionally with Java and Python. The job-ads admirably frank sentence “The candidate must be able to work independently, with minimal managerial oversight, in an environment where creativity and innovation is not facilitated and yet is expected.” could be written of many another site. At least this one facilitates creativity by letting you use Smalltalk. 🙂
The Kapital team in Glasgow are recruiting. Kapital prices complex financial products for JPMorganChase. It is written in VisualWorks and Gemstone, and runs on Unix servers. They would welcome knowledge of Smalltalk and Unix, some banking or finance experience, and a honours degree in a STEM subject, but the essentials are OO coding and debugging experience, willingness to learn, adaptability and sufficient people skills.
The Kapital project (VisualWorks and Gemstone) seeks a developer with experience of OO and of financial development.
A one-year contract, at £300-£350 a day, is being offered for a skilled Smalltalk Developer who also has a strong background in Ruby. UI skill is desirable.
If interested, maybe do not delay overlong; the job ad says the client has a deadline (but does not say when that is 🙂 ). They want the applicant to start as soon as possible.
This post is tangential to Smalltalk, but its desired skill list includes GemStone administration skills and Smalltalk knowledge because it is for the Kapital project, which uses VisualWorks and GemStone, and makes great demands on infrastructure. See the RedHat post for more info.
The job listing I posted on November 25th has expired but another listing of what looks like the same role has appeared: a Smalltalk Developer is wanted by the Kapital project’s Glasgow team. Kapital is a pricing engine written in VisualWorks and GemStone. It has some 90 developers world-wide, organised in teams at 4 or 5 locations.
Although Smalltalk experience is preferred, a developer who has gained Object-Oriented experience in Python, C#, Java or similar will be eligible. The role is development, but includes participation in a production support rota.
The Kapital project seeks a developer to extend existing utilities and build new ones, and to support users (role includes being on a production support rota). Kapital is a pricing engine, implemented in VisualWorks and GemStone.
They want candidates who are experienced in OO (in Smalltalk ideally, but they will accept experience in Java, C++, Python, etc.), have good communication skills and are self-motivated.
JPMC are recruiting for the Kapital project. Kapital is a pricing engine for complex financial products written in VisualWorks and GemStone. The post is for a role that is the same or similar to the one I posted almost exactly a month ago (just scroll down for details).
The Kapital project (VisualWorks and GemStone) is looking for another Smalltalker in Glasgow; details here. A team on-site in Glasgow works with the teams in London, New York and Japan to maintain and extend the large, complex pricing engine and its infrastructure. The candidate will also interact with the internal customers of development tasks, and occasionally participate in the production support rota.
The capital project (VisualWorks and GemStone) is hiring. They want a financial developer to work in the core projects team – there will also be some support duties, including being part of the production support rota. OO experience is wanted. Prior experience in financial applications is a plus.
JPMorgan seek someone with experience in Smalltalk, UNIX and above-all, testing. They should be a good communicator and able to document test plans. Details are here.
I deduce this is to support the Kapital application.
Kapital is recruiting again in Glasgow. This VisualWorks and GemStone application seeks a financial developer to support the Emerging Markets business. Knowledge of Smalltalk (or of another OO language and willingness to learn it) should be part of a strong OO understanding, and they also want relevant financial domain knowledge.
2Rivers wants a Smalltalk developer for their yesplan event-planning software. This is a full-time position to be performed on-site; they are not looking for a freelancer seeking a temporary contract.
The recruitment add is online at their site in Dutch and in English (ability to speak Dutch is not a requirement). Excellent skills in both OO and Web technology are sought, plus the ability to work well in the less formal atmosphere of a small and growing company.
Apply before August 1st.
This sounds like a dream job for anyone who loves both Smalltalk and music. Dolphin Smalltalk is the dialect the app is built in, but they will consider anyone whose CV shows successful development in any Smalltalk dialect. SQL competence is preferred, and they’d be pleased with any mySQL or Crystal reports experience. The usual people skills are desired: self-starter with initiative and good written and verbal skills.
The Kapital project (VisualWorks and GemStone) is recruiting in London, as well as in Glasgow (see my earlier link – they may still be recruiting in Glasgow). The role is to develop new functions, extending existing features, providing support to the Kapital users in London in front office (Trading, Structuring, Sales) and middle office (Trade Support, Finance), and also to support several groups whose applications consume data from Kapital. The role is also in a production support rota to cover key business processes.
This link may be another reference to the job I posted on May 6, or it could be a second position in the same team.
JPM’s Kapital project seek a financial developer to support the rates and emerging markets sectors. Kapital is written in VisualWorks and GemStone. This role is based in Glasgow but works with a distributed team in various timezones, building new functions and supporting front and middle office (includes a production support rota).
They are prepared to train in Smalltalk and in the financial domain provided the candidate is competent in OO and eager to learn.

Cincom’s ChannelStream project is looking for a developer. ChannelStream uses VisualWorks and Seaside. The candidate can be based in the UK, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany or Switzerland (and must obviously be OK with some travel and some remote working, screen-sharing and etc.). Strong Smalltalk development skills are wanted. The role includes occasional work onsite with customers.
As well as the infrastructure post below, the Kapital group in Glasgow seeks a functional developer for their financial system. Smalltalk experience is preferred but they will consider a competent OO programmer willing to learn. The developer will both implement new functions and provide support for existing ones.
The Kapital group in Glasgow seek an infrastructure developer who can also supervise associated UNIX infrastructure changes. Experience in Smalltalk and GemStone is preferred, but someone willing to learn these who is experienced in other OO programming languages, and on other databases, would be considered.
