Software Engineer - Research & Development
Ref No.: 17-00884
Location: New York, New York
Pay Rate : $ 100,000.00 - 150,000.00 /Year
Junior to Mid level role
This is a software engineering position in the "Research and Development” umbrella of the Securities division. The team works with senior researchers in the firm and focuses on two separate areas: Machine learning tools and infrastructure, and HFT Strategy infrastructure. The clients our work are researchers and other software developers – not traders – and a component of the job is interacting with, and supporting their technical requirements and needs.

The machine learning work is high level, and is predominantly focused on large quantities of data, ease of access and efficient data transformations. The HFT strategy work, in comparison, is low-level and has strict performance and latency requirements, and will require excellent working knowledge of C++, as well as willingness to learn and integrate with existing low-latency trading infrastructure.

We are looking for a junior- to mid-level developer to join this new team. The ideal candidate will be a talented and enthusiastic developer with passion for technology and desire to learn, who is willing to contribute to both areas (and more, as the team responsibilities expand). Excellent working knowledge of at least one programming language (Python, C++) is preferred. The candidate is expected to be highly self-motivated and independent, and contribute to all aspects of the software development lifecycle, from design and implementation of new features, to testing and bug fixing.
