LIFE AT IMC AS PYTHON SOFTWARE ENGINEER WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
IMC is a leading global market maker using algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities across multiple trading venues worldwide. From our offices in Amsterdam, Chicago and Sydney, we provide liquidity to the financial markets, driving efficiencies for buyers and sellers. WHAT YOU'LL DO AS A PYTHON SOFTWARE ENGINEER
At IMC, technology is not a department; it's at the heart of everything we do. Developed in-house, our innovative software makes millions of trading decisions daily, and we win by making better and faster decisions than our competition.
IMC's Python Strategy Development team works closely with our Amsterdam trading teams as well as other engineering teams on a variety of applications, tools and automation projects. You'll be placed in an environment consisting primarily of a large Python analysis ecosystem drawing data from various sources, such as external market data vendors as well as our own trading systems. You'll build analysis & visualisation tools at the heart of the business logic, in close collaboration with the traders who use them. Your work involves both interpreting ideas as well as coming up with your own, and efficiently implementing these into tools that are reliable, scalable and performa nt.
Together with traders, researchers, quants and engineers you deliver challenging projects, while taking ownership for end-to-end product development - from requirements gathering to production. You'll write reliable and scalable software while balancing time to production with quality and testability. Advanced automated testing and daily deployments will allow you to achieve agile and incremental benefits.
Within a complex landscape of varying systems and technologies, you'll be constantly challenged to consider trade-offs between throughput, simplicity, scalability and maintainability. OUR TECHNOLOGY STACK
Our tech stack includes an ever-evolving range of systems and technologies, and our engineers have the freedom to choose the best solution for the problem at hand. If a new technology has the potential to add value, we'll actively invest in exploring, adopting and developing it.
Our Python Strategy software engineers currently write applications in Python using frameworks such as Pandas, Numpy and Scipy for numerical analysis; and Celery, Dask, Spark and Kubernetes to distribute and deploy large workloads. These systems connect to various data access and persistence technologies such as S3, MongoDB, Redis, InfluxDB, Hadoop and Kafka. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
At IMC, no two projects or any two days are the same. You can expect a dynamic, fast-paced environment that delivers a steady stream of challenges. One of the most exciting aspects of the job is our quick feedback loop.
Our workforce is just as varied. IMCers are drawn from a broad range of nationalities and backgrounds; what they have in common is their deep technical expertise, extraordinary smarts and highly collaborative approach. We give people lots of responsibility and the support they need to make an impact from day one. As a software engineer, you'll have the chance to learn everything you need to know about financial markets - it's just one of the things that make this job more interesting than other tech roles.
Our flat structure and open, collaborative culture stimulate the sharing of ideas, knowledge and technology between our different teams and offices. WHAT WE OFFER
We hire from the top 10% of the global tech community and we reward accordingly. Beyond this, we provide our software engineers an extensive range of training and personal development opportunities, as well as the chance to work with the latest technologies.
We offer a vibrant office environment, a free catered breakfast and lunch and a ready supply of fresh fruit, snacks and drinks. Our office is a great place to work from, but so is your home. That's why we moved to a flexible hybrid model that allows for both. IMCers are given tools to do their job in comfort, no matter where they work from.
While we work hard, we also have a lot of fun. As part of the IMC family, you'll get to enjoy our annual company trip and numerous social events throughout the year, as well as Friday drinks at our in-house bar. There will also be regular opportunities to give back to society through our charity foundations. OUR HIRING PROCESS
