Job Summary: A small firm with one of the best names within the HFT market. Specialists within electronic market making in FX, equity, fixed income and commodity markets. Ultra-low-latency C++ development alongside industry experts (C++ committee members and contributors to latest C++ versions).
The algorithmic models are built against multi-petabyte datasets on huge clusters, all run in-house. With fewer than 100 staff in total but a household name within the HFT world, this company prides itself on its flat structure whilst avoiding bureaucracy. They hire the best and encourage them to innovate and break boundaries - not get stuck behind red tape.
Yes, you have the fancy office with a replica spaceship (genuinely!), the latest hardware, the company trips abroad, the Michelin star dinners. But it's the work, and the colleagues that draw people to this company:
Build the trading models actually run in production
Launch new strategies without involvement or interference of the quant team
PnL-generating function - not just making adaptors for other teams
Ultra-low latency optimisation down to the hardware
Build custom compilers, build custom math functions
Work alongside the developers implementing C++20 on the Standards Committee (code in production is mostly C++17 with some C++20)
Skills and Experience Required:
Phenomenal development skills
Interest in C++ as a language - you should know about the changes in C++20, and be using C++17 at work or in spare time
Financial knowledge is not required. They have hired from finance, but also from gaming and other tech firms
Benefits and Incentives:
Ownership + the work
Compensation - you are making a direct impact on the PnL
£100-200k base + bonus potential of multiples of base
