We are the engineering team behind the world's largest over-the-counter (OTC) electronic trading (ET) platforms encompassing Fixed Income, Currencies, Commodities, Derivatives and Equities. Our products offer end-to-end trading workflows including price discovery, real-time analytics/pricing, execution and straight through processing (STP), and are fully integrated with the Bloomberg terminal and enterprise solutions.

Our platforms have been at the heart of recent market structure changes, driven by trade automation and regulation. Clients are actively looking to cut costs by switching to more automated and efficient ways of trading, and regulators are pushing for more transparency and systemic controls to prevent another financial crisis. This is an exciting time for us as we embark on projects that cater to these needs and leave a lasting impact on financial trading markets.

Stability, availability, low-latency and flexibility are important elements of a successful trading platform, and we strive to build software with these principles in mind. As Engineers, we work on highly transactional, multi-threaded and distributed services with an emphasis on proven development practices. We constantly evaluate new technologies to ensure creative solutions. We take pride in our product and partner closely with business and sales teams to influence product design.

  •   Using industry standard technologies to build high performance systems
  •   Work in a highly collaborative environment where teamwork is the key to success
  •   An opportunity to learn how the financial markets operate by working closely with product managers and clients

You'll need to have:

  •  5+ years of experience programming in C++ or any other OO language
  •   Self-motivated and proactive attitude to problem solving
  •   Ability to work in a fast paced environment using agile methodologies
  • BA, BS, MS, PhD in Computer Science, Engineering or related technology field
