Excellent opportunity to work with cutting edge technology!

My client is a world-renowned Trading House with offices in all global time-zones. The core business of the company is using  algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities across multiple exchanges in the world.

In the past 30 years, my client realized that, to be successful in the fast-evolving trading environment you have to make ‘’Technology’’ core in your operations.

The company has grown rapidly over the last years but they still approach their work with the same entrepreneurial spirit, passion for innovation and with an emphasis on continuous improvement as in the early days.

You’ll be working closely with traders and a wide range of technologists such as developers, systems engineers, network engineers and performance engineers in a diverse technical landscape. One where many components interface and that manages a high-volume data flow over a low latency infrastructure to execute their trading strategies.

You will continuously improve and maintain their low latency Linux based trading and backend environment whilst managing and monitoring all their distributed systems, big data solutions and storage infrastructure.
