C++ Developer (HFT)

Leading Quant-Driven Market-Maker


Posted 4 Mths Ago


Not your standard financial services provider, this firm prides itself on its flat hierarchy, avoiding bureaucracy whilst rewarding people on merit and excellence. Specialists within electronic market-making in FX, equity, fixed income and commodity markets, they have one of the best names in the industry.

Based in London, Chicago, Sydney & Amsterdam, they are looking to expand their low-latency team with a developer well-versed in modern C++ (C++11 onwards). They design, build and maintain the entire software stack and everything they build is used in-house, trading over $175 billion of assets every day.


  • Strong knowledge of C++11 onwards (they have a completely post-2011 codebase)
  • Sound understanding of what happens inside a computer when your code is running, e.g. caching, paging & system calls, how these work and why. (Knowledge of execution pipeline in a modern CPU is a bonus.)
  • Good proficiency in mathematics, especially being comfortable with calculus and matrices (as much of the work involves designing and implementing numerical algorithms)
  • Familiarity with common algorithms and data structures and their performance trade-offs
  • Practical experience designing and implementing complex software systems is a plus
  • Experience with Linux and/or Python is a plus, but by no means a necessity
  • Financial experience is NOT required

NB: Please do not apply if you are a fresh graduate.


  • Significant compensation package – you are making a direct impact on the PnL – they will pay leading market rate / are flexible for the right candidate
  • They’re willing to be flexible with WFH
  • Collaborative and friendly environment with highly engaged colleagues
  • Culture of trust, innovation and scientific rigour
