  • Data Engineering Team Lead

    Tech Driven Algorithmic Trading Firm

    London

    Posted 4 Wks Ago

    The Firm

    This is an algorithmic trading firm that actively trades tens of thousands of instruments on over eighty venues with a daily volume of almost three hundred billion USD. They partner with counterparties, exchanges, and e-trading venues globally to provide consistent liquidity in the Equity, FX, Fixed Income, Commodity & Options markets, helping market participants throughout the world obtain the best prices in the various asset classes covered.

    Leveraging the talent of the people who work there, modern computational techniques and state-of-the-art research infrastructure, they analyse large data sets across markets quickly and efficiently, to maximise the effectiveness of proprietary trading algorithms. The models that drive trading strategies have evolved considerably over the last 10 years, from econometric methods, to trees, to neural networks, to modern deep learning architectures. They actively seek new methods and ideas.

    At this firm, technology is their business and they’re a diverse organisation which attracts outstanding talent from across all industry backgrounds. Focused on teamwork, colleagues collaborate on all aspects of the business, working openly and with respect for each other, clients and the market. The culture is non-hierarchical and one where everyone is valued. They strive for excellence in everything they do.

    The Role

    Seeking an experienced software engineer to lead a new Data Engineering group. You will be responsible for building a new system for processing and managing daily data that is used throughout the firm including corporate actions, fundamentals, and index membership data.

    They’re not trying to collect hundreds of alternative data sources; instead, the focus is on collating the data that is most critical to the firm, both now and as the business evolves, and ensuring that there is a singular, clean, easy to access and well-integrated repository of these data. As the owner of the firm’s daily data, you will be expected to anticipate the needs of the business and ensure the normalised data schema is minimal yet sufficient.

    As with all technical leadership roles at this company, you can expect the majority of your role to be engineering rather than pastoral management of a team.

    Essential Attributes

    • You will have several years of experience working with financial data and in particular, experience with the subtleties of corporate actions will be crucial.
    • You must be a confident programmer and proficient with at least one statically typed language (Java, C++, Go, etc). Much of the firm’s software is written in Go and although you will need to integrate with this existing software stack no prior Go experience is required (so long as you are willing to learn).
    • You will be very comfortable with data analysis and statistics; required to ensure sufficiently clean data (for example regressions will be required to determine the market’s effective rate of withholding tax, so some knowledge of statistics or basic machine learning would be highly beneficial).

    Benefits

    • Onsite gym, sauna, and fitness classes at no charge.
    • Extensive medical benefits including an on-site doctor and therapist at no charge.
    • Breakfast and lunch provided daily.
    • Various supports for caregivers, including emergency dependent care.
    • Beautiful offices in central London.
    • 25 days paid holiday per year + statutory holiday and paid sick days.
    • Generous pension contributions.

These solutions will require greenfield development of tooling and back-end functionality to ensure the efficient dissemination and delivery of information to traders.

    THE CLIENT:

    This is a tech-driven trading firm and leading global market maker. As one of the oldest market making institutions, they are a trusted partner of 50+ exchanges across the globe. Their mission is to constantly improve the market by injecting liquidity, providing accurate pricing, increasing transparency and acting as a stabilising force no matter the market conditions. With a focus on continuous improvement, they participate in the safeguarding of healthy and efficient markets for everyone who participates.

    WHAT YOU’LL DO:

    As a Lead Engineer in this team, you’ll be driving the C# Vision and developing end to end functionality for the desktop applications that run the trading business. Central to this function is the continuous performance improvement of the systems that run Global Trading Applications. You will have the opportunity to work on other parts of the systems and have an impact on numerous areas of the business. Activities range from:

    • Architecting and implementing back-end solutions to increase performance of traders’ desktop applications
    • Profiling and improving the performance of trading applications
    • Designing and developing user interfaces able to deal with the busiest market conditions reliably
    • Improving, investigating and automating the workflow of traders

    Desktop applications are mainly written in C# with WPF running on Windows.

    You will need to have extensive experience with this technology stack or similar desktop UI toolkits. You will be expected to lead the vision for this Technology Stack on the Trading floor, engaging Technologists and Trading teams alike to deliver performance.

    You will get to work closely with trading and research stakeholders on a day to day basis, understanding the needs of the business, immediately seeing the impact of your changes, and receive meaningful feedback from technologically minded stakeholders.

Next to C#, we also extensively use Python and other languages, such as C++ and Python, and you are therefore expected to be willing and able to learn new languages quickly. They have an agnostic approach to our technology use; focusing on how to engineer a robust solution, less so the specific technology
    • Prior financial experience is not required but a strong desire to learn the business is a must

    WHAT YOU’LL GET:

    • The chance to start your career working alongside best-in-class professionals from over 40 different countries.
    • Performance-based bonus structure that is unmatched anywhere in the industry. They combine profits across desks, teams and offices into a global profit pool, fostering a truly collaborative environment to work in.

    Amsterdam

    Posted 4 Wks Ago

    Pioneering their own trading strategies and systems using clean code and sophisticated technology, my client runs a global network with thousands of high-performance, low-latency applications that solve problems in nanoseconds.

    Trading in several exchanges around the world, they must co-locate servers in each one, and manage them alongside the ones running at their Amsterdam data center. Since the “cloud” is not available in exchanges and, more importantly, they need full control of every detail of their infrastructure, they build and manage each aspect. It means they manage more than 1500 servers in more than 15 locations around the world. All of them are connected with a mix of low-latency and long-distance lines – and they’re looking for a Software Engineer, Infrastructure to manage them.

    THE CLIENT:

With a focus on continuous improvement, they participate in the safeguarding of healthy and efficient markets for everyone who participates.

    WHAT YOU’LL DO:

    There are different teams in the Infrastructure Department working to create a robust and reliable foundation for the core business. The UNIX team in particular manages all Linux servers and turns to automation to provide the best possible experience for Operational and Developer Teams.

    They want to solve the challenges of infrastructure operations with software and want to build teams with the exact mix of skills required for that. Looking for Software Engineers with an interest in the topic, but also for people with good understanding of networking or the Linux Kernel internals. This team is an intersection of these two profiles.

    As the next team member, you can expect to:

    • Focus on all aspects of Linux server management;
    • Work on automation projects, writing mostly Python code (yes tests are code too 😉) together with other tools like Ansible
    • Participate in the design and implementation of core infrastructure systems;
    • Split your time between operational tasks and development (50:50). Note: Some members of the team do a bit more operational work, while others are more development-focused. This depends on individual skillsets and preferences;
    • During the week you will have your “Operational Day” where you keep an eye on the dashboards in case of incidents while helping other users in the chat or at your desks. On those days you will also work on small operational tasks like triggering server install, applying configuration changes, debugging issues and implementing small features.

    Some examples of day to day tasks:

    • Provision servers through the automated deployment pipeline;
    • Apply configuration changes to infrastructure;
    • Debug production issues;
    • Support Developers and Operations teams;
    • Plan and coordinate changes in the infrastructure together with other teams in the department.

    Some current example projects:

    • Command line client and HTTP API (they use FastAPI) to provision Linux bare metal servers and networking devices;
    • Work on the piece of software that will kill all connections to an exchange in case of unexpected systems issues – a crucially important Risk Control given the nature of highly automated, low latency trading;
    • A system that describes the infrastructure and to audit Intent vs Truth in the infrastructure (this is the source for all their Infrastructure as Code).

    Some future example projects:

    • Replace the monitoring system;
    • Replace Cobbler with an image-based solution to achieve minimal provisioning time;
    • Remove themselves from the server provisioning pipeline. Give the control to users.

    WHO YOU ARE:

    • A Software Engineer with a strong desire to automate your work with a reluctance to do repetitive tasks but an eagerness to solve problems;
    • You think that not all the tools are good for every problem and you can adapt to what the current problem needs;
    • You can code in Python or have the propensity to pick it up. If you don’t consider yourself a developer, you can do some scripting and work with Linux or networking low levels;
    • The ability to multitask and handle priorities in collaboration with other teams;
    • A proactive approach to problem solving;
    • Experience with real life infrastructure and Linux servers.

    Bonus points if you have:

    • Experience building Python tools for infrastructure automation;
    • High attention to detail coupled with strong communication skills;
    • Experience with configuration management (they use Ansible but experience with similar tools is considered);
    • Experience with networking;
    • Knowledge of virtualization, bare metal server management.

    WHAT YOU’LL GET:

    • The chance to start your career working alongside best-in-class professionals from over 40 different countries.
    • Performance-based bonus structure that is unmatched anywhere in the industry. They combine profits across desks, teams and offices into a global profit pool, fostering a truly collaborative environment to work in.

    Alongside this you will get great secondary benefits such as 25 paid vacation days, fully paid first-class commuting expenses, training opportunities, discounts on health insurance, breakfast and lunch facilities, sports and leisure activities, Friday afternoon drinks and even weekly in-house chair massages. They’re also accustomed to guiding expats through relocation, offering competitive relocation packages and providing visa sponsorship where necessary.

    Tech Driven Algorithmic Fund

    London

    Posted 1 Mth Ago

    Fantastic opportunity for talented programmers at one of the world’s top algorithmic trading firms in their London office. They make the world’s markets more financially efficient using smart algorithms. To get the job done, they hire some of the smartest computer scientists in the world to develop both their low latency trading platform and their massive distributed research platform.

    Algo Software Engineers (AE) are programmers that are embedded in the trading teams and work hand-in-hand with Algo Strategy Developers (AD). Whereas ADs tend to use their math skills to make smarter strategies, AEs focus on the software that powers trading and research. Because of this close collaboration, AEs tend to be the type of engineers that thrive on constant interaction and discussion. Hearing how their most recently deployed system allowed for whole new types of research would make their week. AEs are the type of engineers that don’t mind juggling a few projects at once and have a varied portfolio of project types, from long-term ambitious new systems to fire-fighting live issues.

    This environment is particularly well-suited to driven, self-motivated programmers. For one, the company’s Partners are all programmers. Team Leads spend a majority of their time doing technical work. Algo teams run on a very bottom-up approach that encourages everyone on the teams to come up with ideas and dictate the direction of each team together. Finally, there is very little emphasis placed on project management process (almost no meetings and no project managers) and there is a lot of emphasis placed on engineering process, such as automated testing, design/code reviews, and technical training.

    This is a Linux/Unix shop with a codebase written primarily in C++ and Python. If you are not a C++ or Python or Linux expert, that’s probably OK. They care more about your technical fundamentals, practical experience and that intense desire to make things better for other people. That being said, they want someone who is familiar with a non-scripting language such as C++ or Java.

    Here are a few examples of programmers who are currently AEs:

    • When he’s not solving riddles and dancing salsa, David’s writing distributed computing APIs. He regularly solves bugs like “one out of a million jobs are dying on only these machines and only on Tuesdays”. He likes bridging the gap between Algo Strategy Developers and Systems Engineers to explore how to use distributed computing to run research. He really enjoys coming up with ways to make millions of jobs more efficient.
    • Before joining, Jessie worked in big tech for 6 years, doing primarily web development. She enjoys taking unclear problems (“This job takes too long to run.”) and figuring out the right way to solve them (“The reason the speed of this job is concerning is because it’s impractically slow to debug. We need more interactive debugging tools to avoid constantly restarting jobs.”). She cares about writing reliable and thoroughly tested software. When she’s not coding, Jessie enjoys solo traveling (she’s been to every continent except Antarctica!), reading far too many books, and speaking at conferences.
    • Aaron started programming at age 5 and previously ran the research team at a music software company, bringing over 7 years of experience to the job. He cooks and practices partner acrobatics in his free time. He gets joy from his teammates’ happiness when their research runs twice as fast, from building them tools that help them visualize their strategies, and from keeping code organized and maintainable. He’s gotten coworkers from other teams involved in latency improvements to his group’s live trading. He enjoys the collaborative environment and learning from his coworkers.

    Culture:

    This fund brings a scientific approach to trading financial products. They’ve built one of the world’s most sophisticated computing environments for research and development, and their researchers are at the forefront of innovation in the world of algorithmic trading.

    Colleagues come from all sorts of backgrounds: mathematics, computer science, statistics, physics, and engineering. A community of self-starters who are motivated by the excitement of being at the cutting edge of automated trading, and their culture celebrates great ideas whether they come from veterans or new hires.

    Seem like something you might be interested in? The goal is to find the best people and bring them together to do great work in a place where everyone is valued. They’re proud of their diverse staff; with offices all over the globe they benefit from varied and unique perspectives.

    This is an equal opportunity employer; so whoever you are they’d love to get to know you.
