Compensation: £200k – £400k
Excellent opportunity for a Software Engineer to join an established quantitative trading firm. With the ability to step into a distributed system which is at the cutting-edge of latency and throughput.
Unlike most trading firms where technology is a cost, at this firm the code is their whole business and is what gives them the advantage. Become part of a current team which boasts one of the youngest C++ committee members, ACM world finalists and Olympiads from across the world in a highly diverse and hugely talented team.
Their systems are written in highly performant C++; however it is the underlying fundamentals and hard work that they value, and therefore are looking at any OO background.
Unsurprisingly, they boast a flat structure, casual office atmosphere with no politics or red tape impeding the generation or implementation of your ideas, giving you more autonomy than any competing firm.
This company is seeking ‘techies’ who love to code, they love a challenge, and in return they offer extremely competitive compensation and industry-leading training / coaching.
- Excellent design and problem-solving skills
- Strong knowledge of data structures and algorithms
- In-depth OO programming in C++/Java/Python/C#
- Knowledge of UNIX operating systems (Linux is used)
