Our client is a leading global market maker using algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities across multiple trading venues worldwide. From their offices in Amsterdam, Chicago and Sydney, they provide liquidity to the financial markets, driving efficiencies for buyers and sellers.
What you’ll do as a C++ Software Engineer
At our client, technology is not a department; it’s at the heart of everything they do. Developed in-house, their innovative software makes millions of trading decisions daily, and they win by making better and faster decisions than their competition. Our client Amsterdam-based C++ Execution development teams work on software that sits directly in the latency-critical loop of their technology stack and touches every part of their organisation. From ensuring their connectivity to the market and handling massive amounts of data, to implementing complex trading algorithms and integrating advanced hardware solutions.
As a software engineer, you’ll work in multidisciplinary teams alongside other engineers as well as traders, researchers, and quants to deliver challenging projects, while taking ownership for end-to-end product development – from requirements gathering to production. You’ll write reliable, high-performance software while balancing time to production with quality and testability. Advanced automated testing and daily deployments will allow you to achieve agile and incremental benefits. Within a complex landscape of varying systems and technologies, you’ll be constantly challenged to consider trade-offs between latency, throughput, simplicity, scalability and maintainability.
Their technology stack
Their tech stack includes an ever-evolving range of systems and technologies, and their engineers have the freedom to choose the best solution for the problem at hand. If a new technology has the potential to add value, they’ll actively invest in exploring, adopting and developing it. These are just some of the technologies their C++ software engineers are currently working with: C++ 20, Linux, Docker, Kubernetes, Apache Kafka, Apache Spark, Impala, Hadoop, Python and FPGAs.
What you can expect
At our client, no two projects or any two days are the same. You can expect a dynamic, fast-paced environment that delivers a steady stream of challenges. One of the most exciting aspects of the job is quick feedback loop. Their workforce is just as varied. Our client’s teams are drawn from a broad range of nationalities and backgrounds; what they have in common is their deep technical expertise, extraordinary smarts and highly collaborative approach. They give people lots of responsibility and the support they need to make an impact from day one. As a software engineer, you’ll have the chance to learn everything you need to know about financial markets – it’s just one of the things that make this job more interesting than other tech roles. They promise you a flat structure and an open, collaborative culture that stimulates the sharing of ideas, knowledge and technology between their different teams and offices.
What they offer
They hire from the top 10% of the global tech community and they reward accordingly. Beyond this, they provide their software engineers an extensive range of training and personal development opportunities, as well as the chance to work with the latest technologies. They offer a vibrant office environment, a free catered breakfast and lunch and a ready supply of fresh fruit, snacks and drinks. Our office is a great place to work from, but so is your home. That’s why they moved to a flexible hybrid model that allows for both. Every colleague are given tools to do their job in comfort, no matter where they work from. While they work hard, they also have a lot of fun. As part of our client’s family you’ll get to enjoy their annual company trip and numerous social events throughout the year, as well as Friday drinks at their in-house bar. There will also be regular opportunities to give back to society through our charity foundations.
