C++/Python Engineer: Trading Business Technology (Python Focus)
Ref No.: 17-00272
Location: New York, New York
Position Type:Direct Placement
Start Date: 07/12/2017
 We're looking for a select few uniquely excellent C++/Python engineers to join our world-class team. The Team is creative, energetic, friendly, entrepreneurial, and collaborative. If you could walk around our office, you'd see that we're a focused, intent, and nimble company with none of the attitude and bureaucracy of a stereotypical Wall Street trading firm. Our engineers love to work on challenging and complicated problems, and in return, they have a chance to make a direct impact on our bottom line. For the right talent, there is fantastic growth potential. 

Our standards for code quality are high, and our bar for the software engineers who write it is stratospheric.  The most successful engineers at our firm move fluidly between roles over time. Engineering jobs have some different flavors with a mix of C++ and Python focuses:
Running our business responsibly means keeping close track of our fund positions, risks, compliance, and the value of every single asset we hold at any given time. Designing and engineering our next generation platform for routing and managing all of our post-trade data is an exceptional challenge and a top business priority.

 
  • Redesign, build, and evolve our post-trade technology stack for finance, fund operations, analytics, risk, and compliance.
  • Own the selection, vetting, and integration of open-source and third-party platforms.
  • Be a business partner to our CFO, COO, and operations teams
Experience Required for all Engineering Roles:
  • 5 to 10+ years of professional software development experience
  • Exceptional programming skills
  • Experience designing fully automated, readily scalable, and highly reliable software systems
  • Familiarity with UNIX/Linux, network/distributed systems programming, multithreaded programming, lock-free algorithms, complex scheduling problems, and domain-specific languages is helpful
  • Knowledge of trading and finance isn't required
Education:
  • Bachelor's or master's degree in computer science from an excellent academic program
