Our partner values quick-witted, creative minds and challenges them to make full use of their capacities. If you aim high, the sky is the limit!
What You Will Do
C++ plays a crucial role in our partner’s critical path (so-called ultra-low latency path) from handling huge amounts of market data in reliable, and in the fastest possible manner, to making business decisions (trading strategies) to shooting huge amounts of orders back to the Exchanges.
Our partner expects their new colleague to write code, create new designs and maintain existing applications with focus on low latency, and stability. Our partner’s business users are typically only a walk away, which helps to create short feedback loops and to see your changes provide value in the shortest time possible.
To enable that, they strive to follow the best software engineering practices and are supported by the best working environment, latest technology, and continuous support from all parts of the company’s organization.
Our partner works in small teams grouped by business area. Each team is typically responsible for a set of related applications and works in tight collaboration with business owners. They maintain libraries shared across the product groups to enable code re-use and to have a common view on application architecture. They write extensive unit tests and have a QA team that supports them with integration testing. They follow agile practices, tailored to the problem area and preferred team approach.
- Ideally 5+ years of C++ development experience
- University degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or equivalent
- Strong software engineering skills with C++ as your primary language
- Knowledge in computer science fundamentals
- Interest in achieving maximum performance from available hardware and software
- Ambition to continuously learn how to write clean, reliable and highly maintainable code
- Ability to express your ideas and thoughts to your colleagues clearly in English
- Previous experience in the financial industry is highly advantageous
Our partner likes to think that talent grows at the company and stays at the company. To ensure this, they provide their employees with an extensive onboarding program, access to the company’s Academy, the best working environment, the latest technology, and continuous support. They go out of their way to retain the small business feeling with which they started and stimulate innovation and collaboration through teamwork and their non-hierarchical approach. They offer competitive salary, annual discretionary bonus, and other fantastic perks and benefits.
Our partner grew to be as successful as they are today out of the expertise and experience of their founding partners. Their non-hierarchical approach stimulates innovation and achievement. They invest in their talented, highly motivated people since they hold the key to our partner’s success. Their demanding, sophisticated work continuously puts them to the test.
