Job Description

 

Our client, a quantitative investment manager, seeks exceptional engineers to join their down-to-earth, nimble, diverse community of over 150 professionals.  Founded in 1993, the firm established an extraordinary track record at a major global investment bank and became independent in 2013.  

 

Our standards for code quality are high, and our bar for the software engineers who write it is stratospheric.  The most successful engineers here move fluidly between roles over time. Engineering jobs  have some different flavors with a mix of C++, Java, and Python focuses.  Having said that, we're open to any OOP experience, so long as you're comfortable working in one of our primary languages.

 

 

Trading Business Tech

Trading Business Technology covers the platform that routes and manages all of our post-trade data, as well as the software that handles the intricate needs of our fund accounting and operations teams.  Designing software tailored to those needs-related to wire transfers, expense allocation, and exchange fees, to name a few-is a top business priority with clear, significant impact. 

  • Understand (and anticipate) the software challenges faced by our fund accounting and operations teams, then engineer efficient, user-friendly solutions
  • Contribute to the evolution of our post-trade technology stack for finance, risk, and compliance
  • Help select, vet, and integrate open-source and third-party platforms
  • Qualifications: 0 to 3+ years of professional software development experience

Trading Control 

Trading Control provides software to observe, analyse, respond to and disseminate data about our trading.  We work closely with the Risk, Portfolio Managers, and Compliance teams to design software to observe and analyse our trading to ensure we are trading within expected bounds, both in real-time and at end of day.  Trading data and issues detected are disseminated to the Operations team, for whom we write tools to allow them to respond quickly and efficiently should intervention be required.  Ensuring our trading is safe, reliable and compliant, as well as providing tools to respond quickly and confidently is a top business priority with clear, significant impact.

  • Understand (and anticipate) the software requirements for our Portfolio Managers and Risk, Compliance and Operations teams, then engineer efficient, user-friendly solutions
  • Contribute to the evolution of our technology stack
  • Help select, vet, and integrate open-source and third-party platforms
  • Qualifications: 4-8+ years of professional software development experience

 

Additional Qualifications for all Engineering Roles:

  • Exceptional programming skills
  • Experience designing fully automated, readily scalable, and highly reliable software systems
  • Familiarity with UNIX/Linux, network/distributed systems programming, multithreaded programming, lock-free algorithms, complex scheduling problems, and domain-specific languages is helpful
  • Knowledge of trading and finance isn't required

Education:

  • Bachelor's or master's degree in computer science from an excellent academic program

 

 

Why join us?  We have a stellar twenty-four-year track record and a reputation for excellence. Our goal is to be the best quantitative investment manager in the world—measured by the quality of our products, not their size.  Our very high employee-retention rate speaks for itself.  Our people are intellectually extraordinary and our community is close-knit, down-to-earth, and diverse.
