Tech-Driven Prop Trading Firm


Posted 3 Mths Ago

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.

Your incredibly varied workload will include tasks such as order routing, exchange connectivity / market data feeds, risk management and would be perfect for someone skilled in performance tuning/troubleshooting (applications, Linux, socket I/O, etc.)


  • Significant development experience using modern C++ and Python on high performance, low latency design
  • 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)
  • Experience in trading or other ultra-low latency sensitive industry is a big plus
  • Candidates must be based in the USA and have a valid working visa (H1B/Green Card)


  • Top of the market compensation package
  • Culture has the lively spirit of a start-up, with stability of a longer-established firm
  • Feel valued for your input and get rewarded for great ideas
