This is for a job at a rapidly expanding quant fund that specializes in futures and fixed income markets. The team consists circa 70 where there is a real culture of curiosity, creativity, hard work, and well tested quantitative research.
The team members are exceptionally smart (we recruit for a lot of companies).

There is a great deal of value based on individuals who are detail oriented and seek perfection in their work.
Currently looking for a highly motivated, talented and responsible software engineer with a strong C++ background to join our algorithmic trading development team in NYC.

The software engineers here work side-by-side with quantitative researchers (same desk) to implement market leading algorithms and strategies for futures and fixed income trading. As a key member of this team, you will be expected to design, code, test and deploy projects while working in a fast-paced environment.
- Solid C++ programming skills (OOP, Templates, Design patterns, Data structures)
- Knowledge of the multithreaded programming, IPC and and linux internals
- Ability to work independently and a strong desire to automate
- Excellent team-player and communication skills
