Senior Python Software Engineer
Global Market Maker/ Algo Trading Firm
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Salary on Application
Our client is a leading global market maker using algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities across multiple trading venues worldwide.
The Python Strategy Development team works closely with the 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 their 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 performant.
The 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.
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 their quick feedback loop.
They offer a vibrant office environment, a free catered breakfast and lunch and a ready supply of fresh fruit, snacks and drinks. The office is a great place to work from, but so is your home. That's why they moved to a flexible hybrid model that allows for both. You'll get to enjoy the annual company trip and numerous social events throughout the year, as well as Friday drinks at their in-house bar. They also offer a full relocation package should you require it!
