Software Engineer, Automated Trading Systems
The client:

A leading trading firm driven by technology with over one thousand employees globally. Since trading on the floor changed to screen-based trading, they constantly need the most advanced technology, trading software and connections to the market. The atmosphere here is fast, but exciting. This makes working in the Trading Technology team a great challenge, whereby expertise, innovation and fun go hand in hand every day.

What you'll do:

You will be responsible for the full stack of applications required to run the trading business. Activities range from developing ultra-low-latency exchange protocol encoders and decoders, writing and fine-tuning automated trading strategies, to helping the monitoring and analysis effort by creating and extending user interfaces to provide the traders with more information and control. You'll interact closely with traders and researchers to understand the business needs and design effective solutions. Sitting on the trading floor you will be amidst the action and get instant feedback on the results of your work.

What you'll need:
  • Mastery of one or more OOP languages (e.g. C++, C# or Java);
  • The ability and desire to write simple and clean code;
  • A solid grasp of computer science, algorithms, memory, and concurrency models, CPU-architecture, operating systems, relational databases, etc.;
  • An entrepreneurial attitude and interest in the financial industry;
  • An ambition to stay on top of things and keep improving.

What you can expect:

An energetic and collaborative work culture with ambitious, down-to-earth colleagues. They constantly ask themselves how to do better, which creates a stimulating and fun environment. Next to a competitive salary and excellent benefits (such as an attractive profit sharing structure, training opportunities, fully paid first-class commuting expenses, a premium-free pension, discounts on health insurance, breakfast and lunch facilities, sports and leisure activities, weekly chair massages and Friday afternoon drinks), you will get the support and tools to develop your skills on the job so that you feel empowered to be at your best, both personally and professionally. Relocation assistance also provided where necessary.
