Posted 4 Wks Ago

Summary

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 and attract the best talent.

Based in London, they are looking to expand their exchange trading development 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 between 250 and 300 billion dollars’ worth of assets every day.

The successful candidate will be as comfortable working independently as within a team, and have outstanding communication skills.

Requirements

  • Strong knowledge of C++11 onwards (they have a completely post-2011 codebase)
  • Sound understanding of what happens inside a computer while your high-performance code is running, e.g. caching, paging & system calls, how these work and why. (Bonus points for knowledge of execution pipeline in a modern CPU.)
  • Familiarity with common algorithms and data structures and their performance trade-offs
  • Practical experience designing and implementing complex software systems is beneficial
  • Experience with Linux is a plus, but by no means a necessity
  • Finance experience is not required

 Benefits

  • Significant compensation package – you are making a direct impact on the PnL
  • Collaborative and friendly environment with highly engaged colleagues
  • Culture of trust, innovation and scientific rigour
  • Generous benefits, including onsite gym, sauna & fitness classes, free breakfast and lunch daily, and extensive medical cover.
