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.
At the end of December, an additional Glasgow-based post appeared on the JPMC recruitment site, either a repeat posting of the second (more GemStone-oriented?) of the two positions above or offering a similar additional position.
The UK’s south coast energy supplier uses Smalltalk. They seek a contractor, available for at least 5 months, who can both join the small existing team (developing in Smalltalk, maintaining an existing large application) and teach Smalltalk to new employees. The position is advertised on cwjobs, on monster and on jobsite.
The London office of the Kapital derivative pricing system (VisualWorks and GemStone) wants a developer for work including some front-office and middle office support.
A company in Kent (UK) wants an experienced (2-years+) developer with Smalltalk knowledge to do a couple of Smalltalk development projects. This is a £250-£275/day contract position, offered via this recruiter. Full-time working from a south-east UK location is preferred, but working from home with occasional visits to the office is also an option, and someone competent who would work part-time might be considered.
A company in the Midlands UK uses Linux, Apache, Pharo and Postgres, and also Python and C#. They are looking to recruit. They are looking primarily for Smalltalk because Smalltalk skills are obviously harder to come by. The main web application is built with Seaside. C# is also desirable. Python is used for signal processing algorithm development so any experience in that area is useful.
Chris Bailey works in the team. If you are interested, email him and he will route your application appropriately. (cpmbailey is his email name and he is at btinternet and then dot and com.)
