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.
Java or C++ and Linux. Ideally industry experience, but for Java can be from tech
