Low-Latency C++ Developer - Amsterdam

Not your standard financial services provider, this firm prides itself on its flat hierarchy, avoiding bureaucracy whilst rewarding people on merit and excellence. Specialists within electronic market-making in FX, equity, fixed income and commodity markets, they have one of the best names in the industry.

Based in London, Sydney & Amsterdam, they are looking to expand their low-latency team with a developer well-versed in modern C++ (C++11 onwards). They design, build and maintain the entire software stack and everything they build is used in-house, trading over $175 billion of assets every day. Employee turnover is below 5% / ten digit amount of equity capital.

***Interviews will be remote; ideally start dates will be in-house, but they're flexible.***

  • Strong knowledge of C++11 onwards (they have a completely post-2011 codebase)
  • Sound understanding of what happens inside a computer when your code is running, e.g. caching, paging & system calls, how these work and why. (Knowledge of execution pipeline in a modern CPU is a bonus.)
  • Good proficiency in mathematics, especially being comfortable with calculus and matrices (as much of the work involves designing and implementing numerical algorithms)
  • Familiarity with common algorithms and data structures and their performance trade-offs
  • Financial experience is NOT required

  • Practical experience designing and implementing complex software systems is a plus.
  • Experience with Linux and/or Python is a plus, but by no means a necessity.

  • Significant compensation package - you are making a direct impact on the PnL
  • They're willing to be flexible with WFH
  • Collaborative and friendly environment with highly engaged colleagues
  • Culture of trust, innovation and scientific rigour

Salary: up to €200k + bonus

If this sounds like you, or you would like to know more, please get in touch.
