We require a strong technologist with proven leadership skills to work within a global team on our new and on-going projects. You will be working on highly distributed, low latency trading platforms based on C# front ends and Java/Scala back ends. The systems book trades, continuously calculate prices and associated metrics, allow historical time-series analysis and connect directly with several electronic markets. The C# client controls all aspects of the system from algorithmic trading configuration to electronic feeds and requires clear, intuitive design. Likewise, the systems have high update rates and require very powerful and optimized UIs and servers to cope with these demands.
The client is built using a combination of WinForms and WPF with all new components being built in WPF. The servers are built using Java and Scala and rely on modern technologies and approaches such as reactive programming, cloud computing, micro services and distributed caching. In addition to new features and enhancements, we are looking to continue to renovate, improve and selectively rewrite parts of the existing system.
