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