Software Engineer (Python, Java, C++)
My client are a leading quantitative hedge fund which engages in systematic, process-driven proprietary trading. The firm builds automated trading strategies aimed at capturing market inefficiencies across various markets and asset classes from a few milliseconds to longer term both pure arbitrage or statistical in nature. The team has an extensive history of successfully running quantitative trading strategies for more than a decade and spun out as a hedge fund last year.
They operate at the intersection of trading, quantitative modeling, and technology and roles are therefore highly interdisciplinary. They trade on state-of-the-art infrastructure to handle their large trading volumes with offices globally.
The investment team builds systematic black box trading models. These fully automated trading strategies are built using C++ & python running on Linux and are deployed within the firm's data centers as well as co-location sites.
Excellent technology is the key to the desk's profitability. Trading platform is primarily built using C++ on Linux and maintained in house by technology teams evenly split between New York, London and Singapore. Framework for automated strategies, position management systems & middle office platforms are all managed in-house. Low-latency is a competitive advantage for certain strategies - with market data event to order submission being measured in microseconds. The strategies send millions of orders per day, so scalability and stability is vitally important.
The Technology group is responsible for development, support & infrastructure management for the investment team.
Due to strong performance and growth of the investment team, my client are looking for a talented individual to join their Technology team. Successful candidates will develop and maintain global real-time risk management & position keeping systems supporting various asset classes. The candidate must be comfortable working in a dynamic, fast-paced environment with a need for high quality reliable deliverables and strong communication with global colleagues.
