Python - Software Engineer - Quant Developer - world leading principal trading firm. In my experience this fund have never been been beaten on price when making an offer !!

This is a US proprietary trading firm with a reputation for having one of the most highly performant trading infrastructure platforms in the world of systematic quant trading today. They have a global operation but this hire is in their London office.

They calling this a Python developer role but they would consider developers and software engineers from a number of other technical backgrounds too, C++ might be the next best alternative tho. They are looking for a really great, 2-4 year level developer that can bring a fresh perspective to way this team build software.

The team have a collaborative and supportive culture and they are confident in their ability to teach this individual about how to run a successful systematic quant trading business.

Ideal profile

  • An independent and passionate software developer with expertise building systems from start to finish.  Including an understanding of infrastructure, operating systems and software engineering.
  • Strong academics – Computer Science degree from a top university. This team will also look for evidence of other achievements, such as experience competing in Olympiad competitions, open source contributions or maybe coding competitions.
  • Evidence of building systems – ideally in Python or C++.
  • It’s also felt than an interest in algorithms and basic mathematics would be useful, as they will be sitting in a team of Quant Researchers and Traders.
