FlexTrade Systems

Founded in 1996, FlexTrade Systems is the global leader in high performance, multi asset order and execution management solutions.

Our worldwide client base spans more than 175 buy- and sell-side institutions, including investment banks, hedge funds, asset managers, commodity trading advisors and institutional brokers.


Located in Great Neck, NY with offices in North America, Europe and Asia, FlexTrade maintains an experienced staff of developers, programmers, strategists and product specialists, who work hand-in-hand with our clients' technologists and traders to break new ground in the field of electronic trading.


We offer competitive salaries, bonuses and a comprehensive benefits package.


The Team

About You

The purpose of the role is to manage multiple client implementations in parallel. Work with the clients’ trading desk and technology teams alongside other Client Services teams and Account Management to see projects through to successful completion. Key to this position will be understanding priorities from the client’s perspective and managing the projects and deliverables effectively and efficiently.

  • Monitor implementation progress
  • Keep all internal and external stakeholders updated on the progress of the projects
    • Communicate confidently project status and raise alerts
    • Build rapport and form strong relationships with the clients

  • Work effectively in a fast paced, high energy, team-oriented environment
  • Coordinate timelines for new work deliverables
