Our team
FXGO is a growing team of talented engineers who develop the infrastructure, libraries, systems and user interfaces which power those trading platforms. We are expanding our presence in London and looking for candidates for multiple teams.

The Post Trade function is the backbone of the whole FXGO system, providing a resilient API for booking trades and supporting numerous Post Trade delivery workflows, including a universal trade blotter to display current and historical trade information, and the provision of trade confirmation through seamless integration with customers’ own internal systems.
FXGO Streaming
FXGO Streaming builds a low latency foreign exchange trading platform (FXTG) for traders. It subscribes to the pricing from the world's leading banks, processes thousands of price updates per second, and distributes them to the trader's screen. We aim to provide the best experience for traders in these fast-moving markets so they are confident that their trades execute at the best price.
