Job Description - Trading Technology Engineer

We’re looking for a few excellent software engineers to join the teams responsible for both building our trading platform and implementing our trading strategies that run on these platforms.  We are are 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.  As an engineer within this group, there are two different opportunities, one working on the trading infrastructure itself, and another putting into production the models that run on this infrastructure.

A role on this team offers significant exposure to sophisticated methods of trading, from the handling and distribution of market data to order management and routing solutions.

Successful candidates come from very strong technical and academic backgrounds, are interested in solving complex technical issues, wish to be deeply involved in hands-on programming. They also enjoy ownership of business-critical projects, working on the full life cycle of large complex systems, from designing and implementing new components and features to supporting and enhancing existing functionality.


  • Develop and maintain our proprietary software stack using C++, Assembly, Python, Unix/Linux
  • Use software development methodologies to implement and extend order management, compliance, exchange connectivity, market data, and routing functionality
  • Design and implement our next generation real-time trading platform
  • Maintain and enhance our internal development infrastructure, which includes our build and deployment environments, compilers, debuggers, and other development tools
  • Manage and support the operation of our global trading system, troubleshooting and debugging issues
  • Monitor compliance-related issues and market/exchange technology changes

Additional Qualifications

  • Significant experience programming in one or more of C++, Python, and Java
  • Ability to collaborate with a larger team on design innovations
  • Keen debugging, problem-solving, and optimization skills
  • Pragmatic and mature approach to technology
  • Experience designing fully automated, scalable, supportable, and reliable trading systems highly desirable
  • Knowledge of finance and trading systems strongly preferred
