My client is a leading prop shop with a global presence (US, UK, Asia).  They are extremely tech-driven and invest very heavily in their engineering teams. Developers here are truly world-class.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented senior C++ software developer to be an integral member of one of their algorithmic trading teams. In this role, you will design, build, and implement full life cycle development of trading applications and tools using agile methodologies. You will also coach and mentor junior engineers on best practices and through code reviews. 

Here there is very little red tape, and a rapid feedback loop on the software you build. They are firm believers in automated testing and lightly-coupled architectures. The successful C++ developer will be an enthusiastic programmer, eager to build new technologies that directly impact the business.
