Why it’s good:

Working in High Frequency Trading and Cryptocurrency throws up the opportunity to solve some interesting technical challenges. 

Given the excellent trading result over the past year, we’re in a strong position to expand and pursue a variety of new revenue streams. You’ll have the opportunity to work remotely.

We operate with a very flat hierarchy, meaning that you will work alongside some of our most senior team members as well as having direct contact with the founders of the firm on a daily basis. We are focused on performance and results – the people that can deliver in both of those areas will receive market leading compensation.

 

Job responsibilities include: 

  • You’ll develop applications that connect to 10-20 crypto currency exchanges and redistribute public market data to our global network of auto trading applications, in the most efficient manner you can engineer
  • You’ll design bespoke middleware to optimise traffic patterns, minimise end to end system latency, whilst ensuring resilient transmission over diverse network topologies 
  • You’ll work closely with traders and quants to devise experiments to improve the performance of the market data pipelines. The improvements you make have a direct impact on the P&L the company generates
  • You’ll develop low latency pricing engines in modern C++, protocol translators that handle millions of messages a second and a variety of python testing and analysis tools 
  • You’ll work with a technically advanced team, collaborating with experts from around the globe, from a variety of trading and technical disciplines 
  • You’ll be accountable for the deployment, monitoring and management of the market data and low latency middleware solutions the team has made. 

 

What we’re looking for:

  • You have 5+ years experience developing clean, maintainable and performant code in C++ on Linux
  • Experience developing network messaging protocols and shared memory transports
  • Data analysis using python and other ad hoc tooling to analyse time series data sets and other large sets of data 
  • You can have experience that stems from a wide variety of backgrounds – be it Telecommunications, Defence, Gaming, embedded systems or something else
  • You can find the balance between delivering clean, testable, reliable code and rapidly deploying new strategies to take advantage of market opportunities
  • Ready to work remotely, engaging with staff in both European and US time zones
  • Experience optimising WebSocket and Rest protocols.

 

With bonus points for anyone with any of the following experience – it is preferred, but not essential:

  • Experience with high-transaction, latency optimized, distributed systems
  • Experience in optimizing the full trading execution stack: market data, execution connectivity, inter process messaging using tcp or shared memory, kernel bypass technologies
  • Experience in a trading environment, particularly high frequency trading.
