Software Engineers on Trading Desks
Software Engineer – Trading Teams
Our Client, a leading proprietary trading firm in Chicago has 4-5 development openings on various trading desks across and Java and C++. This is an opportunity to work on a smaller team, where the bonus pool is divided up amongst the group.
The breakdown is below:
- FX Options – 1-2 Mid-Sr. Java Developers. Ideally someone that has worked on all part of the machine, and has failed enough to understand what works.
- (Bitcoin/Cryptocurrency) – 1 Sr Java or C++ Developer. This is a great opportunity to build software on a team that focuses solely in the crypto space. The preference is someone from the industry
If your background is C++, it’ s a tough sell if you haven’ t worked on modern C++ 11, 14, 17, etc,
If your background is Java, we’ re more interested in Engineers that know their way around Core Java, Optimization, memory management, etc. We don’ t need a high frequency/low latency style developer, but someone that can get underneath the hood a bit.
Linux is always preferred. We can consider people outside of finance depending on their experience and interest.
