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.
They are seeking talented senior C++ software engineers to design, develop and maintain the entire stack of their high throughput, low-latency trading system. 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.

- Multithreaded programming experience with in-depth understanding of hardware/software interaction
- Degree in Computer Science or equivalent from a top-tier institution
- Knowledgeable about C++11/14 standards; C++ libraries experience (e.g. STL, Boost)
