  1. Very solid Core Java and SQL experiences in the linux environment are critical
  2. Helpful - practical knowledge of scripting language (perl, python)

  4. Some work experience (2+ years) required, but not necessarily in finance
  5. Hard working and strong desire to succeed within a growing team
  6. Motivated self-learner; scrappy and ready to roll up sleeves
