We established the Technology & Operations Program (TOP) in 2000 to develop our next generation of leaders. During this two-year program for recent graduates, Associates experience three challenging eight- month rotations in a particular track or career path, in this case, Software Development, before joining a permanent team. Associates will have the unique opportunity to rotate through many areas of the business gaining exposure and visibility across the firm, while benefitting from formalized training and mentorship.
Software Development Rotations at AllianceBernstein
Software development teams support a vast range of investment and financial platforms, including equities, fixed income, sales, trading, multi-asset solutions, private client, research, corporate finance, data management, and more. In each rotation you will be part of a different software development team, implementing functional and technical specifications provided by business analysts and development managers. You will learn both the functional and technical aspects of an application in addition to the languages and frameworks used for construction. All development rotations involve hands-on learning, supported by team members, project managers, and formal technology training. Software Developers use just about every programming language at AllianceBernstein, so Associates will learn and apply a broad range of technical skills throughout the rotations.
