  • Developing new applications to assist traders in efficiently operating and monitoring trading strategies on more than 50 exchanges across the world.
  • Writing highly speed-sensitive and scalable code that will process large amounts of data.

  • The ability to notice, analyze, and resolve problems quickly and effectively
  • The capacity to multi-task in a fast-paced, dynamic work environment
